When he was 12 years old, Nunes moved with his mother and stepfather to Ericeira, Lisbon District, from Rio de Janeiro, where he was born to a Portuguese father and a Brazilian mother. In the sixth level, he started playing football with the neighbourhood team Ericeirense and, while there, he briefly helped his family at their bakery.
