The signing of manager Nuno Espírito Santo should be announced by Everton this week, according to reports from the Portuguese media.
Most local newspapers are confident that the former Wolves boss will be landing at the Goodison Park this summer, and Record is the one today bringing an update on the situation.
They actually have a big story saying the Toffees are interested in the signing of Matheus Nunes from Sporting before saying that the transfers are pending the manager’s arrival.
It’s claimed that Espírito Santo will be ‘presented as Carlos Ancelotti’s successor’ during this week, and for a matter of ‘timing’, Everton want the announcement before closing any signings.
Record writes that the manager ‘shouldn’t escape’ from Everton and will ‘naturally follow’ the business to take Matheus Nunes out of Sporting now.
Even though the Portuguese media has been quite silent regarding Espírito Santo’s future, we now get the first signs of what will his next club be.
