Matheus Nunes is still a target for Liverpool, and the most recent information coming out of Portugal should excite the Anfield supporters.
We previously reported (through Record) that a bid of £38.4 million plus £4.3 million would be required to capture the Portuguese international.
Sporting CP is seeking the aforementioned price and other conditions to sell the 23-year-old star, according to a report published yesterday in Correio da Manha (news image given below).
According to the reputable news source, Liverpool is getting set to begin negotiations with the Lions to hire Nunes as they consider him as a priority for the upcoming campaign.
The preseason games in Asia, according to CdM, exposed weaknesses in Jurgen Klopp’s team, and the Premier League club will try to strengthen the roster by acquiring the Portuguese international.
The Selecao midfielder is well admired by Sporting manager Ruben Amorim, but the Liga Nos club is already planning for his potential departure, and the manager has tried Tabata and Goncalves in his place.
In terms of the competition, CM Jornal claims that Man City and Wolves are also interested, and the three-way contest might hasten the midfielder’s departure.
The 8-cap international’s contract, which still has more than three years left on it, includes a £51 million release clause.
Correio do Manha, however, asserts once more that the Jose Alvalade organisation would permit the player to depart for £38.4m plus £4.3m but not for any less.
