Wolves turn down Manchester City bid for Matheus Nunes

According to reports, Wolves turned down Manchester City's transfer offer for Matheus Nunes.

The Pep Guardiola team are looking to strengthen their midfield after the departure of key players and the injury crisis in the team.

They recently withdrew from pursuing West Ham midfielder Lucas Paqueta after an alleged case of betting breach.

As a result, they are now turning their attention to Wolves midfielder Matheus Nunes as an alternative option.

However, Man City’s recent bid to lure Wolves into selling their player has been rejected by the Wanderers

Man City's offer not enough for Wolves

Manchester City have seen their bid for Matheus Nunes worth £47 million rejected by Wolves.

The Premier League champions are planning to make another offer, but Wolves are claimed to have rejected their attempt right away, according to The Telegraph

The Treble winners now need another midfielder due to Kevin De Bruyne's catastrophic injury and Ilkay Gundogan's summer move to Barcelona.

According to Daily Mail, the year before the Portugal international moved to Molineux, Guardiola praised him profusely after City met Sporting in the Champions League.

Wolves have already lost some of their top players this summer, with Fulham signing their striker Raul Jimenez for £5.5 million.

Conor Coady was signed by Leicester for £7.5 million, Nathan Collins was signed by Brentford for £23 million, and Ruben Neves moved to Saudi Arabian club Al-Hilal for a club-record £47 million.

In what appears to be a turbulent season ahead for Wolves, losing Nunes, one of their top players, who arrived from Sporting for a club-record £38 million on a five-year deal last summer, would be another setback.
