Wolves transfer news: Matheus Nunes has rejected life-changing offers to leave Sporting

Matheus Nunes has reportedly rejected life-changing offers to leave Sporting CP, according to his manager Ruben Amorim.

The midfielder is very coveted after a fantastic couple of seasons with the Portuguese side.

Speculation has been rife that he will leave the club this summer.

And Wolves have been linked with the 23-year-old for most of the summer.

Seemingly though, no bid has yet gone in from Wanderers, with it looking very possible that player sales will be required in order to fund a move.

But it would appear some offers from other clubs might have gone in, with Amorim suggesting Nunes has turned down proposals.

He told Sport TV (quoted by Record): “If (Cristiano) Ronaldo is a chance? I’ve heard that, I don’t read anything, I don’t see anything. For me the reality is different, it’s keeping my players.

“I’m glad Matheus Nunes is still here. I’m glad sporting players, like Matheus Nunes, reject offers that changed their lives to stay at Sporting. That’s my reality, I’m very happy with my squad and my players are the best in the world.”

The likes of Chelsea and Barcelona have also been linked with Nunes in recent weeks.

Liverpool were mentioned too, but journalist James Pearce rubbished reports of interest from the Reds.

It is looking more and more as though Wolves will not be signing Nunes this summer, after all the talk.

The reports have never really moved past Wolves being interested in the player.

But now, Amorim has said his star has rejected ‘life-changing’ proposals to leave Sporting.

It is unclear which clubs have made those proposals, but it seems Nunes is quite content to stay put for now.

Wanderers may now have to look elsewhere is they want to sign a new midfielder this summer.
