Matheus Nunes refuses to train, forcing his way out to City
Wolverhampton’s Portuguese midfielder Matheus Nunes has stopped training to force his club to reach a transfer deal with Manchester City.
Nunes missed training last Sunday, he did not attend Monday’s either, and he is not expected to return to training after the Portuguese’s clear conviction to join the ranks of Pep Guardiola’s men.
The City would have already sent an offer that the Wolves would have rejected for a value of about 55 million euros (47 million pounds), according to the BBC.
Wolves would want more than £60m for Nunes, making it the most expensive sale in English club history, surpassing Rúben Neves who signed for Saudi league side Al-Hilal last July. Nunes was key last season helping his team in the fight for permanence that they finally achieved by signing a hard-fought 13th place, he signed a goal and an assist in the 34 games he played.
On the other hand, Manchester City seeks with this addition to strengthen the midfield after the departure of Ilkay Gündogan to Barcelona in July.
