Manchester City open to offers for first-team player signed one year ago



| Last Updated:


Transfer officials at Manchester City are reportedly open to receiving offers for a member of Pep Guardiola’s first-team squad signed last summer.

The latest development comes after Pep Guardiola and his players ended their 2023/24 season on a slightly down note, having been defeated in the Emirates FA Cup final by cross-town rivals Manchester United at Wembley Stadium.

That outcome prevented Manchester City from becoming the first side in English football history to win back-to-back domestic doubles, while it also concludes the season with trophies in the bank for the Etihad club.

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.

One player that is now seemingly facing an uncertain future, despite having only joined Manchester City in the last summer market, is Portugal international midfielder Matheus Nunes.

According to the information of HITC’s Graeme Bailey, City are ‘ready to listen to offers’ for Nunes just one year after signing the versatile midfield talent from Wolves, with clubs in Saudi Arabia already circling.

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.

Nunes is one of a number of players being eyed by Saudi Arabia and their ambitious ongoing project in the Middle-East, with officials from the Saudi Pro League identifying Kevin De Bruyne as a priority investment for the coming markets.

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.

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.
