Chelsea ‘are ready to submit a £43m bid for Sporting Lisbon star Matheus Nunes’, who is working with Cristiano Ronaldo’s super-agent Jorge Mendes, as Todd Boehly taps into the super-agent in his search for new stars at Stamford Bridge

  • Sporting Lisbon midfielder Matheus Nunes is generating interest from England
  • Chelsea and Wolves, according to a report in Portugal, are monitoring Nunes
  • A Bola say that the Blues are ready to solidify their interest with a £43m bid 

Chelsea are reportedly ready to make their first signing of the Todd Boehly era by pressing ahead with a €50million (£43m) offer for Matheus Nunes.

According to a report from Portuguese outlet A Bola, Chelsea are ready to ‘attack’ the market and make an offer for the Sporting Lisbon midfielder. 

Wolves are said to hold an interest in Nunes but the report says that a switch to Molineux ‘doesn’t appeal’, leaving the door open for Chelsea to plot their move.  

Nunes is one of the hottest prospects in Portugal

Tuchel is yet to make a signing so far this summer

Thomas Tuchel has not made a single addition so far this summer despite interest in defender Jules Kounde, Raheem Sterling and Raphinha, as well as growing talk around Cristiano Ronaldo and now Nunes. 

New Chelsea owner Boehly wants to make an immediate impact on the club this summer and Nunes would represent a smart piece of business in freshening up the club’s midfield options.

The 23-year-old central midfielder dazzled in last season’s Champions League and shone so bright that Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola even singled him out for praise. 

‘Sporting are a fantastic team, they are the champions of Portugal, which have a very strong league, with Porto and Benfica, they change the ball well, they have fast and intelligent players,’ Guardiola said.

‘I would say that Matheus Nunes is one of the best players in the world today.’ 

Interestingly Nunes is a client of Jorge Mendes’ Gestifute agency and it was Mendes who reportedly met with Boehly recently with the topic of a move for Ronaldo on the agenda. 

Chelsea are desperate to freshen their team up this summer in a bid to close the gap on Man City and Liverpool.

Defence is a priority and Chelsea’s need for Manchester City’s Nathan Ake has grown stronger amid fears Juventus defender Matthijs de Ligt could choose Bayern Munich over a move to London.

Chelsea are willing to offer a higher fee than the Germans of around £68m.

The Blues had identified De Ligt as one of their key transfer targets and offered Timo Werner as part of the deal but were unable to reach an agreement with Juventus.
