Liverpool can agree £33.8million initial fee before deadline – Player’s situation uncertain – Record
Another day, another story on Portuguese international, Matheus Nunes, whose future at Sporting CP is reportedly uncertain.
Yesterday, we covered a story via (Correio da Manha) claiming that the Reds are preparing an offer to sign the central midfielder from the Lions.

Today, Record have covered a story (news image provide below) claiming that manager Ruben Amorim does not want to lose Nunes but anything can happen before the transfer deadline ends.
The renowned Portuguese news source have mentioned that the Primeira Liga club have done majority of their business in the window and would like to sit back and relax but the uncertain aspect is the future of the 23-year-old star.
After cashing in close to 70 million euros, the Liga Nos giants are under no pressure to gain more income in order to balance the books. So, they do not have to sell.
However, if a “convincing proposal” arrives at the right time (market closes on 1st September) then the midfielder will end up leaving the Estadio Jose Alvalade outfit.
Record claim that for an initial fee of 40 million euros (£33.8million) and 10 million euros in variables, the signing of the Seleccao star can be secured.
With Thiago and Ox out injured, Liverpool lack quality and depth in the center of the park and need to sign a midfielder.
As per the Lisbon-based source, if Nunes ends up leaving Sporting CP then replacing him would be on Amorim’s agenda, a situation he does not want to face.
Have your say – Should Liverpool rely on young midfielders like Elliott, Jones and Carvalho (CAM) or move to strengthen the department before deadline.
One thought on “Liverpool can agree £33.8million initial fee before deadline – Player’s situation uncertain – Record”
Should Liverpool rely on young midfielders like Elliott, Jones and Carvalho? Definitely not, anyway they haven’t been that outstanding. How many goals have these three players scored for Liverpool? None.
I will tell you three things that is going to happen with Liverpool and the supposed midfield transfer interest because this situation happens a lot.
First, Liverpool won’t sign anyone because they will use their injury prone, young and inexperienced players, over aged players and underperforming ones instead because FSG don’t like spending money.
Second, by January Klopp and his backroom staff responsible for recruitment will see that the team is in a real mess and then try to sign someone, but by then no one will be available to sign or sign another inexperienced kid who’s only fit for the academy.
Finally, the fans will wake up to what’s happening when Liverpool draw a lot of games, lose some to very low PL teams and win some games. Everyone will realise they may not qualify for the following season’s Champion League, then by some miracle they do qualify and Klopp will say this has been a successful season because we qualified for the CL. Even though Liverpool win no silverware. Sure!!
Like I said this has happened before, if you’re a Liverpool fan you’ll remember the horror 2020 -2021 season when most of their backline was off injured and were very lucky to finish third. It is all brought about because Liverpool won’t sign players when it’s most important as it now. The priority this summer should have been to sign two more outstanding forwards (only one signed) and two quality midfielders.
They need a bigger squad for when players get injured, such as Manchester City has, but it won’t happen. I sometimes hope that some super rich Arab consortium with links to royalty, etc comes in and make an offer to buy Liverpool as happened with Newcastle, but this is only fanciful thinking. We’re stuck with FSG nonsense and Liverpool won’t win another PL title for another 30 years.
