Manchester City in the English Professional Football Premier League (EPL) is known to have agreed verbally to recruit midfielder Mateus Nunes from Wolverhampton, Hwang Hee-chan’s team.
Citing a league official, the U.S. sports media ESPN reported on the 31st that “Man City has verbally agreed to give 55 million euros (about 79.5 billion won) in Nunes transfer fees to Wolverhampton.” Since the transfer market will close on September 1st, local date this summer, it is expected that Nunes will soon decide whether to transfer or stay.
Portugal’s national team Nunes was born in 1998, and Wolverhampton signed a five-year contract with Sporting Lisbon (Portugal) in August last year for a transfer fee of 45 million euros, the highest ever for the club. He scored one goal and one assist in league games last season.
Manchester City needed to reinforce its midfielder as its main midfielder Kevin De Bruyne suffered a hamstring injury in the opening game of the Premier League in the 2023-24 season. Nunes was fined by Wolverhampton for not attending team training, saying he wanted to go to Manchester City.
However, negotiations with Manchester City broke down once after Wolverhampton demanded more than 100 billion won in Korean money over the Nunes transfer fee.
Manchester City and Wolverhampton also agreed to rent Manchester City’s 2001 midfielder Tommy Doyle to Wolverhampton. 토토사이트
