LAGOS, Nigeria (VOICE OF NAIJA) Manchester City and Wolves have come to a verbal agreement regarding midfielder Matheus Nunes.
The financial terms of the agreement involve an initial payment of £47.3 million (€55 million) by Manchester City for the 25-year-old player, although additional payments contingent on certain conditions are still in the process of being determined.
Nunes, who is currently under contract until 2027 with the possibility of extending for another year, took the step of not attending the Wolves’ training sessions as a means to push for a transfer to the team that achieved a treble victory.
This decision followed the rejection of an initial bid from Manchester City the previous week.
Last summer, Wolves secured the services of Nunes from Sporting Lisbon for a record-breaking fee of £42 million.
In a separate arrangement that has contributed to the ongoing negotiations, Manchester City’s promising young talent, Tommy Doyle, is set to join Wolves on an initial loan basis.
The loan includes an option for Wolves to purchase Doyle for £4.3 million (€5 million), alongside a substantial sell-on clause that could benefit Manchester City in the future.
