Wolverhampton Wanderers’ fans may be getting a little tired with the rumours about the club’s efforts to sign Matheus Nunes, since there haven’t been any big developments in the chase for the midfielder lately.
Still, the Portuguese media can’t stop mentioning Wolves in every story they have about the 23-year-old, and that happens a couple of times today.
Newspaper Record today features an article about Nunes being in Paris. Since he played for the national team after the end of the season, he has a few extra days off and went to enjoy them in France.
That was enough for some rumours about a transfer to PSG, which the outlet dismisses. And when naming clubs who actually want him, they mention Wolves.
It’s said the Molineux side have €45m plus €5m ‘ready’, which matches the €50m demanded by Sporting. It’s claimed the Premier League club are in ‘pole position’, with the most ‘palpable’ interest, even though Barcelona have been linked as well, and added that a transfer would only be concluded in July.
Now if Wolves are putting on the table the money demanded by Sporting, why aren’t the negotiations advanced? Well, that may be explained by newspaper O Jogo.
The outlet also has a few words about Nunes, and points out he’s offering ‘some resistance’ to a move to Molineux.
It’s said he wants to move to a Premier League club ‘of a superior level’, and agent Jorge Mendes continues to look for ‘the best solution’. O Jogo also mentions how much manager Ruben Amorim would like to see that operation ‘aborted’, and wants to count on Nunes next season.
