Manchester City reportedly want to secure a transfer deal for Matheus Nunes in the next 48 hours according to Fabrizio Romano.

Yesterday it was reported that the Manchester club have made an offer worth €50m (£42m) to sign the midfielder from Wolves.

Now though, Romano has shared some extra information on this particular transfer story.

In a recent Twitter post, Romano had this to say on the matter.

He said: “Manchester City will insist to close Matheus Nunes deal with Wolves in 24/48h after initial €50m proposal plus add-ons discussed yesterday.

“Pep [Guardiola], big fan of Nunes; player has already accepted City as destination. It’s now up to Wolverhampton.”

Since arriving at Molineux back in the previous summer transfer window from Sporting CP in a deal worth £38m, the midfielder has made 41 appearances for Wolves in all competitions.

His debut season in England saw the 24-year-old feature in 34 of Wolves’ 38 Premier League games.

Nunes ended the previous league campaign with more carries into the final third of the pitch (54) than any other player at the Midlands club, in addition to having the third-highest combined total of tackles and interceptions (83).

This shows how much of an impact the midfielder had on and off the ball for his current side last season.

Bearing in mind how Guardiola previously said Nunes was one of the best players in the world after seeing him face off against City for Sporting in the Champions League back in February last year, this backs up what Romano said about the Spaniard being a big fan of the player.

With the Citizens apparently looking to secure a deal for the Wolves star over the next day or so, seemingly after they announce the arrival of Jeremy Doku, who they secured a £55m deal for earlier this week, this shows how eager they are to get him in their squad and become a part of the team.
