Fabrizio Romano says Man City ‘increasingly confident’ of landing former LFC target soon

Posted by

Manchester City are understood to be ‘increasingly confident’ of landing Matheus Nunes before the summer window closes.

Fabrizio Romano shared the update on Monday morning on X, following an agreement on personal terms, with the former Liverpool target looking set to trade Wolves yellow for the blue half of Manchester.

It’s a claim that will no doubt come with some frustration attached for Reds fans amid their ongoing search for a versatile midfielder ahead of the window closing on 1st September.

Nonetheless, it had been thought that we were engaging in talks of our own over the weekend regarding the future of reportedly wantaway man Ryan Gravenberch.

Whether these were vaguely successful does remain to be seen, though it does have to be a worry that there is now only four days left in the window whilst we have two key bits of business that desperately need doing.

Judging by Ibrahima Konate’s absence from the pitch and concerns over Joel Matip and Joe Gomez’s to cover (albeit, the pair performed admirably at St. James Park on Sunday), it’s critical that we do look to get at least one defensive transfer agreed – and pronto!

  1. Surely a defender is absolutely necessary ?
    We have Konate , Matip , and Gomez who are all injury prone . Is Matip back to his old ways of playing once or twice then missing for weeks on end ? I thought Matip had got over all that ?
    Gomez is the same , but when he does play sometimes he has a blinder ( like against Newcastle ) or we see the other side of him , where he’s a huge risk .
    Have the club dithered too much over new defenders some we were ” interested in ” have now signed for other clubs .
    Klopp has had a long standing interest in Mateus Nunez , even promising him that Liverpool would come back to sign him , so are we really going to let Man City sign him ? We got one over Utd with Gakpo why not do the same to the other Manc club ?
    Are we in for a surprise , curve ball type signing ?
    If so can it be Nicolo Barella PLEASE 🙏
