It’s been a year and a half since Sporting sold Matheus Nunes to Wolverhampton Wanderers, but they’re still benefiting from it.

Wolves spent €45m to sign the midfielder in the summer of 2022, and it only took one year for them to make some profit with his sale, negotiating his move to Manchester City for €62m last summer.

Now as communicated by Sporting and relayed by Leonino, the Lisbon side have just made a couple of million from that last transfer.

It’s recalled that when the Lions sold Nunes to Wolves, there was an agreement for them to keep 10% of the profit the Molineux side could make with him

That amount, added to the solidarity mechanism for being one of his training clubs, gave Sporting an extra €2.4m, which is detailed in their financial report.

Following his arrival at Manchester City last summer, Nunes has 22 appearances already. He has a contract with the club running until 2028.

The midfielder still shows great feelings for Sporting, having watched the Lions’ Europa League match against Young Boys at the Alvalade stadium last night.
