Manchester City have reached an agreement with Wolves for Portuguese Midfielder, Matheus Nunes, for a reported £53m.
City’s academy prospect Tommy Doyle will move to the opposite direction on an initial loan deal with an option to buy for around €5m with a significant future sell on clause, Sky Sports reports.
The move will be a club record sale for Wolves surpassing the £47m they got for the transfer of Ruben Neves to Al Hilal.
Nunes Moved to Wolves last summer for a club record £42m from sporting Lisbon.
City needed to boost their midfield option due to the recent long term injury sustained by the club’s captain, Kevin De Bruyne, and were initially pursuing a deal for West Ham’s Lucas Pacqueta but quickly moved on to Matheus Nunes after the move for the Brazilian fell through.
The move will take Man City’s summer spending to above £200m after the arrivals of Josko Gvardiol from RB Leipzig for £77m, Mateo Kovacic from Chelsea £25m and Jeremy Doku from Rennes for £55m
