Wolves have a situation on their hands, with midfielder Matheus Nunes having gone on strike amid transfer interest from Manchester City.

Nunes is a top target for City with just a few days left in the window.

City have already seen one bid rejected.

Nunes is said to have agreed personal terms with the club, and wants the move.

But Wolves are not about to let him go on the cheap.

Although, Nunes is really applying the pressure on Wolves – and a journalist has now shared why he has decided to go on strike…

Matheus Nunes feels striking increases his chances of a move

Nunes behaviour has angered a lot of fans.

He has not been given permission by Wolves to miss training, and he will apparently be sanctioned if he stays the club and no agreement with City is reached.

Journalist Alex Richards says: “Matheus Nunes told Wolves he wanted to leave for Manchester City last week after first bid was rejected. It wasn’t a problem.

“Everyone fine with the situation. Over weekend he chose to strike. Things hadn’t changed, no new bid had been made, but clubs were talking. So why?

“Simply, he was told it would make Wolves more likely to accept a new bid. Told City, despite optimism a deal will get done, don’t want to meet the valuation. Told he should help get it done at a lower price. So, he did. And now here we are. But really, it’s changed little.”

Nunes’ behaviour is disgraceful

This decision to strike by Nunes is an awful reflection on him and his character.

It’s understandable that he wants the move.

But that should not mean you stop training with your current club you are contracted to to get what you want.

He will probably end up getting his move.

But he will likely not be a very popular figure on his return to Molineux later in the season.
