Man City set to move for ‘unbelievable’ star who’s turned Pep’s head, last game for club tonight

Portuguese newspaper Correio da Manhã has now shared a major Manchester City transfer update involving Sporting Lisbon star Matheus Nunes.

The Lowdown: Exciting week at Eastlands…​

This time last week, Blues were still coming to terms with City’s dramatic Champions League semi-final exit at the hands of Real Madrid.

Fast forward to now and Pep Guardiola’s side have responded in irresistible fashion, swatting aside Newcastle United and Wolves with 10 goals in two games as they take huge strikes towards retaining their domestic crown.

Off field, the Sky Blues confirmed an agreement to sign Erling Haaland from Borussia Dortmund in the summer – putting an end to their long search for Sergio Aguero’s heir.

Conveniently, all of this falls around the 10-year anniversary of Aguero’s iconic 93:20 title-winning goal which clinched City their first ever Premier League crown in the most incredible of ways – a moment which will live long in the hearts of supporters everywhere.

As Etihad Stadium officials look toward the 2022 summer transfer window, after sealing a deal for Haaland, it appears a major update has now come to light on their pursuit of Sporting midfielder and target Nunes.

The Latest: City ready to ‘advance’…​

According to newspaper Correio da Manhã (via Sport Witness), City are now waiting to ‘advance’ with €40 million (£34m) for the exciting 23-year-old.

It is believed they are waiting until the end of the Liga Bwin season before coming to the table with Guardiola’s side currently favourites and having ‘preference’ in a potential deal for Nunes.

Correio say that Nunes may well play his last game for Sporting against Santa Clara later this evening, coming as City’s boss is ‘already convinced’ by the player who’s turned his head.

The Verdict: Get it done…​

As City search for a new midfield signing after Haaland, there are few candidates who could seamlessly slot into Guardiola’s side as brilliantly as Nunes.

According to WhoScored, the gem completes more dribbles per 90 (2.5) than any of his teammates and may well come as an expert ball-carrier who can help to transition Guardiola’s side from defence to attack.

Goncalo Santos, an ex-teammate of Nunes, backs just how good he is on the ball – calling him an ‘unbelievable’ dribbler who’s ‘impossible’ to catch (via Liverpool Echo).

For just £34m, he would truly be a snip.
