Manchester City’s season may have concluded with silverware, but it seems Pep Guardiola is already planning for the upcoming campaign. A surprising development has emerged regarding a player who only joined the club last summer: Portuguese midfielder Matheus Nunes.

Manchester City looking to Offload Nunes

According to reports, Manchester City are willing to entertain offers for Nunes. This comes after the team’s FA Cup final defeat to Manchester United, which dashed their hopes of achieving a historic back-to-back domestic double. With the season over, City are focusing on the summer transfer window. Guardiola is expected to bring in new players while also reshaping his squad for the upcoming challenges.
Despite joining just last year, Nunes finds himself in a precarious position. The report suggests City are “ready to listen to offers” despite his limited playing time during a challenging season. City officials will now be looking towards the upcoming summer transfer market, both in the way of incomings into Pep Guardiola’s side, and departures as part of a refresh for the forthcoming campaign and the fresh challenges that await. The news comes amidst growing interest in Premier League players from Saudi Arabia’s ambitious clubs. Nunes is reportedly one of several players being eyed by the Saudi Pro League, with Kevin De Bruyne identified as a top target.

It is detailed that the midfielder’s representatives, including Jorge Mendes, are considering their options, whilst both Paris Saint-Germain and Barcelona have shown an interest in the past.

At present, it is clarified that it remains to be seen how Matheus Nunes feels personally about his own Manchester City future, given the struggles of the most recent campaign and limited game time.

TRANSFER FEE?

Nunes’ representatives, including super-agent Jorge Mendes, are said to be exploring options. Reports also mention past interest from Paris Saint-Germain and Barcelona. How Nunes feels about a potential move remains unclear.

EDERSON TO LEAVE TOO?

The report further suggests that goalkeeper Ederson could also attract interest from Saudi Arabia. Manchester City are reportedly bracing themselves for a potential exit request from the Brazilian shot-stopper. Ederson could also be subject to interest from the Middle-East, and Manchester City are bracing themselves for the Brazilian international shot-stopper to request an exit from the Etihad Stadium.
Should clubs from Saudi Arabia make concrete offers, Manchester City could command a significant transfer fee. A combined figure exceeding £150 million is mentioned for both Nunes and Ederson.

CONCLUSION

City fans will undoubtedly be following developments closely. Manchester City would likely seek a combined transfer fee north of £150 million for the pair, should clubs from the Saudi Arabian top-flight turn their admiration and interest into concrete offers in the coming weeks. he willingness to entertain offers for a player like Nunes underscores the club’s commitment to strategic planning and maximizing squad value.
