Wolves star ‘pushing’ for club-record move to Manchester City amid Liverpool and Arsenal links



| Last Updated:


Manchester City are reportedly leading the race to sign Wolves forward Pedro Neto next summer with the player ‘pushing’ for a move to the Etihad Stadium.

Pep Guardiola’s side could be set to complete major transfer business with Wolves for the second consecutive summer transfer window, with Matheus Nunes having swapped Molineux for the Etihad Stadium in September for £53 million.

The Portugal midfielder has made 20 appearances for Manchester City so far this season and could be set to be reunited with former Wolves teammate and international counterpart Pedro Neto next season.

City could add another Portuguese star to their squad in the summer, with Ruben Dias, Bernardo Silva and Nunes all currently part of Guardiola’s first-team at the Etihad.

Wolves star Neto has been handed five Portugal caps and will be in contention to feature at the European Championships this summer, following an impressive campaign under Gary O’Neil in the Midlands.

The 23-year-old, who can play in midfield and out wide, has been directly involved in 11 Premier League goals in 16 appearances so far this season, leading to transfer interest from a number of clubs.

Premier League title chasing Manchester City, Liverpool and Arsenal have all been linked with a potential move for Neto at the end of the campaign, with Wolves set to demand a club-record fee for the forward.

Nunes’ £53 million deal to City smashed Wolves’ previous sales record, and with Neto contracted until 2027, the Midlands club will be in a strong position to command a sizeable fee.

According to the information of Manchester City insider ‘Tolmie’s Hairdoo’ on X, Neto could become Manchester City’s first signing of the summer window as both the player and agent are ‘pushing’ for a move to the Etihad Stadium despite interest from Merseyside.

The report claims that the Blues’ interest in the Wolves star is ‘very real’ and that the treble-winners are eyeing a move for the versatile forward.

Manchester City are expected to further bolster their squad next summer, with Guardiola’s side having also been linked with Bayern Munich midfielder Joshua Kimmich and West Ham’s Lucas Paqueta.

Bernardo Silva’s long-term future at the Etihad Stadium could also be subject to further doubt, with the 29-year-old rumoured to have a £50 million release clause.
