Manchester City are set to return with a second bid for Wolves midfielder Matheus Nunes according to reports.
Simon Jones of the Daily Mail has reported that the European champions will return with a second bid for the midfielder. He adds that the treble winner’s initial bid of £47 million plus add-ons was rejected by the Midlands club. In addition, he adds that City could walk away from the deal if they deem it too expensive.
Fabrizio Romano also reports that the Premier League champions are set to return with another bid for the Portuguese international. He adds that Matheus Nunes is keen to move to the Etihad.

Sam Lee has also spoken of Manchester City’s interest in Nunes. Speaking on the Let Me Talk podcast Lee went into more detail on City’s move for the Wolves man. He explains that Matheus Nunes is Manchester City’s main target for the remainder of the window. He also adds that it is Nunes, not Crystal Palace midfielder Eberechi Eze who is the champion’s main transfer target.
With City set to launch another bid for Nunes, the champions are active in trying to add to their squad before the summer transfer window closes. With indications that the Portuguese midfielder is keen on a move to the Etihad, it does seem a matter of time before a deal is agreed between the two clubs regarding Matheus Nunes.
