Wolves’ luck could be in over Matheus Nunes, with the player said to be open to a move to Molineux.
The midfielder is a target for Wanderers this summer, along with his Sporting CP teammate Joao Palhinha.
Palhinha is the name that has been in the gossip columns the most, And it’s thought Lage really wants him as a part of his squad for next season.
But the manager is also a big admirer of Nunes.
Apparently, he has insisted that he is signed this summer.
And Nunes is open to making the move according to Correio da Manha. He supposedly sees Wolves as the ideal club in which to compete in the Premier League.
The report suggests that Palhinha is ‘very close’ to moving to Molineux. And that Nunes is ‘likely’ to move also.
It is the first we have heard about Nunes’ own stance, and it is encouraging that he is wanting to come.
Encouraging Matheus Nunes update as report claims he’s open to Wolves move
This is good news for Wolves, and hopefully will mean that Nunes will soon be pictured holding up an old gold shirt.
The reports suggests Nunes, 23, could potentially cost at least £34 million.
That’s a lot of money. But we are talking about a player with very big potential, and someone Pep Guardiola called one of the best players in the world.
Ideally, Wolves will get him and Palhinha both signed as soon as possible.
It would be great if Ruben Neves stayed, but one gets the feeling that if Palhinha and Nunes both came in, then Fosun would be looking to cash in on the maestro to balance the books.
