Manchester City announce deadline day signing

Manchester City have confirmed a transfer on deadline day.

Manchester City have announced the signing of Matheus Nunes from Wolverhampton Wanderers on a five-year deal.

On the move, Nunes said: “I’m so happy to be joining Manchester City, the Champions of Europe and a club I’ve admired for a long time.

“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.”

City’s 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.”

Nunes is understood to have set Manchester City back £53m.

The deal also includes a 10 per cent sell-on clause for Wolves from any profit City make on the 25-year-old in future.
