As per the latest reports going on in the media, Manchester United seem serious about signing Brazilian international and Atletico Madrid forward, Matheus Cunha.
According to Marca, Man Utd have set sights on the La Liga attacker and have started moving to secure his signing this summer.
The 23-year-old has more than three years left on his contract with the Colchoneros, who would only sell their prized asset if the release clause, which could be around max 70 million euros (£58.9m), is met.
Last night, The Mail revealed the Red Devils have been made aware that Cunha is actually willing to seal a move to Old Trafford despite joining the Wanda Metropolitano outfit last year.
In the 2021-22 campaign, the 7-capped international featured in 38 games in all competitions under the management of Diego Simeone and directly contributed in 15 goals (7 goals and 8 assists).
However, it must be noted that the Samba star only started 11 games (none in the Champions League).
In the opening league fixture of the new campaign against Getafe yesterday, Cunha was brought on in the second half and only featured for 7 odd minutes.
At Man United, he might be able to play week in and week out if Cristiano Ronaldo, who is linked with a move away from the club, ends up leaving.
Erik ten Hag’s men have conceded 6 goals in the opening two games of the Premier League and the only goal scored for them was an own goal netted by Brighton’s Pascal Gross.
The 20-time English champions desperately need key reinforcements and lately, they have been linked with quite a few center-forwards.
Have your say – Should they splash £58.9m to sign Matheus Cunha?
