Manchester United has agreed to pay the Brazilian great £42 million in the English Premier League.
According to rumours, Mattheus Cunha's transfer to Old Trafford will cost Manchester United and Atletico Madrid £42 million.
The Red Devils, who are in "desperate need" of reinforcing their front line due to the sheer absence of firepower inside their ranks, have a deal approved, according to talkSPORT. With just seven goals in 37 appearances for the Champions League regulars, Cunha just joined the Spanish capital squad last summer in a £22 million trade from Hertha Berlin.
He's now below Antoine Griezmann, Joao Felix, and Alvaro Morata in the pecking order, so it's not really his fault. Although it partially addresses the vacuum left by Anthony Martial's absence due to injury, the acquisition would not immediately address all of United's offensive problems.
With Cristiano Ronaldo's future uncertain, Cunha might have a significant role under Erik ten Hag this summer as he attempts to turn around United's disastrous start to the season after their 4-0 thumping at Brentford and their 2-1 loss to Brighton at home in the most solemn of circumstances.
