Matheus Nunes, a midfielder for Wolverhampton Wanderers, has been officially signed by Manchester City for €62 million.
Nunes has signed a five-year contract with the Premier League champions Man City and will don the No. 27 jersey.
The 25-year-old told Man City’s official website that he couldn’t turn down the offer to work under “Pep Guardiola, one of the greatest managers ever.”
“I’ve learned so much during my season at Wolves and I’m excited to continue improving in the Premier League, a division which brings the best out of me.
“I’m really excited to get going, meet the fans and hopefully be a part of plenty more success at City.”
The Portuguese joined Wolves last summer after leaving Sporting. He made an impression on Guardiola when playing for the Lisbon club in the UEFA Champions League, earning the Spaniard’s praise as “one of the best players in the world” following City’s 5-0 victory in February 2022.
Nunes has one goal and one assist in his first Premier League campaign with Molineux. The Budweiser Goal of the Month for April 2023 was scored against Chelsea.
Nunes might make his City debut on Saturday against Fulham; also, Tommy Doyle, a City midfielder, was acquired by Wolves in a separate deal on a season-long loan.
