Manchester United was humiliated in Ten Hag’s first game at Old Trafford. Perhaps the defeat was unsurprising given our inability to strengthen key positions this summer.
The midfield department needs to be strengthened as soon as possible, and Matheus Nunes’ name is on the radar at Old Trafford.
According to Correio da Manha, the Portuguese international rejected a lucrative offer from Wolverhampton Wanderers.
To secure a move to the Premier League, the Sporting CP star prefers to wait for an offer from Manchester United, Manchester City, or Liverpool.
Ruben Amorim is hoping to keep him at the club but the manager knows that if a proposal from a top PL club arrives, then he will have to release the player.
The renowned news source has mentioned that Nunes will be part of the national team at the World Cup. A good campaign can convince the English giants to splash the cash in the winter transfer window and they might value him for his termination clause
For the time being, the 23-year-current old’s contract has a £50.6m release clause, which CdM claims the Lions would look to increase in order to get as much money as possible from his sale.
Nunes can play in a variety of midfield positions for Sporting, and he scored four goals and provided five assists in all competitions last season. So far for the senior national team, he has started two games and scored one goal.
