Wolverhampton Wanderers haven’t exactly gotten off to a brilliant start in the Premier League so far this season as they currently find themselves just outside the bottom three, with a lack of a finisher really hurting them.
However, one thing that fans got to shout about over the summer was the addition of highly-rated Portugal midfielder Matheus Nunes, who joined Wolves for £42 million from Sporting Lisbon.
Interestingly, there were other teams such as Manchester City who were linked with a move for the midfielder, but it never materialised.
Although, given Wolves’ start to the season and the quality of the midfielder, there will inevitably be potential rumours surrounding a future move away from Molineux.
But, journalist Pete O’Rourke is of the impression that it would be a ‘massive shock’ if he was to leave Wolves in immediate transfer windows, which will no doubt come as a slight bit of relief for Wolves fans.
Speaking to GiveMeSport, he said…
“It’d be a massive shock for Bruno Lage if they were to lose him so early after just signing him from Sporting Lisbon. He will be hoping to at least keep Nunes for one season after his big-money arrival from Sporting Lisbon. Wolves did very well to sign him in the summer transfer window when he was linked with a number of top clubs as well.”
Does Nunes have a long-term future at Wolves?
TIF thoughts on Matheus Nunes at Wolves…
Of course, a lot of what Wolves can do on the field will determine exactly how long the Portugal international stays at Molineux, as we know he has aspirations to play in the Champions League again, which is something that it looks like the Old Gold will struggle to deliver given their current position in the table.
However, Ruben Neves is a player who many expected to use Wolves as a stepping stone but things haven’t panned out that way as he now finds himself five years down the line and even dons the captain’s armband, so perhaps Nunes could fall under the same Molineux trance.
