Premier League champions Manchester City have roped in Matheus Nunes from Wolverhampton Wanderers on a five-year deal.

The Portuguese international is City’s fourth signing in the current transfer window after Croatian duo Mateo Kovacic and Josko Gvardiol, as well as Belgian winger Jeremy Doku.

Nunes’ began his professional career in the summer of 2018 when he joined Primeira Liga side Estoril.

The midfielder joined Sporting in January 2019, making his senior debut for the Lisbon side in June of the following year. He was a regular part of the side that secured a league a cup double in 2020-21 and also featured in the Team of the Season in 2021-22.

Wolves paid a record fee to sign Nunes’ services ahead of the following campaign, with the midfielder a regular at Molineux during his solitary full season in the West Midlands, even winning the Premier League Goal of the Month for April 2023 with a remarkable strike against Chelsea.

“I’m so happy to be joining Manchester City, the Champions of Europe and a club I’ve admired for a long time,” Nunes was quoted as saying by

“The opportunity to work under Pep Guardiola, one of the greatest managers ever, and alongside some of the best players in the world was something I couldn’t turn down.

“I’ve learned so much during my season at Wolves and I’m excited to continue improving in the Premier League, a division which brings the best out of me.

“I’m really excited to get going, meet the fans and hopefully be a part of plenty more success at City.”

Manchester City Director of Football Txiki Begiristain added: “Matheus is a fine player. We are really happy he is here, and we know he will help us this season and beyond.

“He possesses real quality and will bring a fresh dynamic to this team. He is a player who can play passes that open defences, he can beat players and he is technically excellent.

“Everyone knows Pep improves players – we have seen it so often – and we cannot wait to see how Matheus develops under his management.”
