Todd Boehly plans to launch a £43 million bid for Matheus Nunes using tactics similar to Bruno Fernandes’.

Matheus Nunes has been extensively linked with a move away from Chelsea this summer, with Wolves, Everton, and Manchester City all all interested.
Chelsea might soon make their first signing under Todd Boehly, with Thomas Tuchel likely to follow Pep Guardiola’s lead and emulate Manchester United. Matheus Nunes has been extensively linked with a move away from Sporting CP this summer, with Wolverhampton Wanderers and Everton also interested, but the Blues have emerged as the midfielder’s most probable destination.

The west Londoners aim to pay roughly £39 million for the 23-year-old, with a further £4 million in add-ons, according to A Bola, via the Express. Chelsea are apparently hoping to capitalise on possible suitors’ reluctance to make bids.

Sporting have apparently undertaken ‘extensive conversations’ with Bruno Lage’s side, but despite a reasonable offer, Nunes is sceptical of a transfer to Molineux. And, with Ruben Neves no longer expected to go, it’s unclear how Wolves would bankroll a bid to outbid the west Londoners.

According to reports, Chelsea’s bid might be enough to make Tuchel’s first acquisition of the summer a statement, but also an unconventional, signing. This summer, he appeared 33 times for the Portuguese giants in Liga NOS, directly contributing to five goals from midfield.

With his enthusiastic and aggressive displays, Nunes pushed Sporting towards a championship drive, emerging into one of Europe’s hottest prospects.

Following in the footsteps of Bruno Fernandes, who switched Estádio José Alvalade for Old Trafford, Chelsea might aim to replicate United’s success after purchasing from Sporting.
