Matheus Nunes reportedly refuses to train in a bid to clinch Manchester City move

Wolves Portuguese midfielder Matheus Nunes has reportedly gone on strike to clinch his move to Manchester City. Reports overnight indicate the midfielder is determined to move to the Etihad before the transfer window closes.

David Ornstein reporting for the Athletic broke the news of the Wolverhampton Wanderers midfield man refusing to train. Ornstein further reports that Nunes has expressed his wish to join the European champions before the transfer window slams shut on Friday.


SkySports also reported on the news of Nunes stopping training with the Midlands club. The Portuguese International will face disciplinary action from his club if the move to Manchester City doesn’t materialize.

Transfer expert Fabrizio Romano also reported yesterday that the treble winners had returned with an improved offer for Matheus Nunes. With Nunes refusing to train with his club and the City returning with a new bid it appears that there will be movement one way or another on the Matheus Nunes front.

The Premier League champions are determined to land their man and wrap up their summer business ahead of the window closing. Nunes’s refusal to train is the player’s attempt to speed up the prospective move as quickly as possible.
