Matheus Nunes completes £53m move from Wolves to Manchester City; midfielder’s move to City is a club-record sale for Wolves; Nunes becomes City’s fourth major summer signing following the arrivals of Josko Gvardiol, Mateo Kovacic and Jeremy Doku to take their spending to £216.1m

Manchester City have signed midfielder Matheus Nunes from Wolves in a £53m deal.

The 25-year-old’s move to City is a club-record sale for Wolves, who have a 10 per cent sell-on fee on any future profit City make on Nunes.

The former Sporting player becomes City’s fourth major summer signing following the arrivals of Josko Gvardiol, Mateo Kovacic and Jeremy Doku to take the treble winners’ spending to £216.1m.

City had been looking for a creative midfielder after Kevin De Bruyne was ruled out for several months with a hamstring injury he suffered in the first game of the season against Burnley.

Nunes went on strike in the final week of the window in a bid to force through his move to the Etihad.

Nunes has shown glimpses of his quality, scoring a superb volley against Chelsea last season, but that remains his only goal for the club in 41 appearances.

Wolves signed Nunes in a club-record £42.2m deal last summer, paying an initial £38m plus £4.2m in add-ons.
