It has been reported that Wolves are privately resigned to selling Matheus Nunes if Manchester City submit a lofty bid for his services.

This comes from ESPN, after it was claimed on Thursday that Pep Guardiola has been a huge admirer of his for a number of years now.

Now, it seems like Manchester City could seal a deal for Wolves midfielder Matheus Nunes after all with their next bid.

Wolves privately resigned to Matheus Nunes sale if Manchester City make massive bid

Branded as ‘unstoppable’ by journalist Zach Lowy, the 24-year-old has started the 2023/2024 season on fire.

The Portuguese international put on a masterclass against Manchester United, showcasing his technical security and enviable engine and whilst he was almost as influential against Brighton, a deserved sending off marred another impressive outing.

Now, it has been revealed that first things first, Wolves are open to listening to a second offer from Manchester City for Matheus Nunes after their initial £47 million bid was turned down.

Interestingly, Gary O’Neil’s side have privately accepted that the former Sporting CP ace could be sold if City break the bank for him, also due to how desperate he is on a move to the Etihad Stadium.

Pep Guardiola may determine how Matheus Nunes transfer ends up

Considering the fact that Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has held Matheus Nunes in high regard for a while now, whether his side put in a sizable bid may rely on how keen he is on the transfer.

While it seems like the higher-ups determine any and every transfer dealings at the club, they could well adhere to Guardiola’s preference, especially as the transfer window is about to close in a week’s time.

City are in need of bringing in another midfielder after Kevin De Bruyne’s injury and Pep Guardiola clearly adores Matheus Nunes.

How much Guardiola is pining for the move at this moment in time is the question, considering he referred to him as ‘one of the best players in the world’ in 2022 (via Birmingham World).
