“You Never Know” – 14 Goal PL Star Makes Frank Admission Amid Links To £60M United Switch

BACK David Tully Jun 16th 2024 Wolves forward Matheus Cunha says he is flattered that Manchester United are interested in signing him. It was reported earlier this month that the Red Devils are weighing up a move for the Brazilian and, asked about the rumours, Cunha said: “You know it’s a real honour to have your name linked to Manchester United. One of the biggest clubs in the world.” “But I’m happy at Wolves. If I’m lucky I play another good season, but the window is open, you never know.” Although Cunha was keen to emphasise that he isn’t looking to leave his current team, it appears he would be open to a potential move to Old Trafford. How much would Cunha cost? It is believed that Wolves would want at least £60m for the 25-year-old, which is a sizeable fee. The forward did have a good season, scoring 14 goals and providing 8 assists in all competitions. However, if United are to splash that sort of cash on a striker this summer, they will be keen to sign a proven goalscorer. Are United pursuing other forwards? Erik ten Hag’s side were interested in signing Benjamin Sesko from RB Leipzig, along with Arsenal and Chelsea, but the Slovenian international’s decision to sign a new contract has ended any speculation about his future. Bologna’s Joshua Zirkzee, Brentford’s Ivan Toney and even Aston Villa’s Ollie Watkins have been mentioned as potential alternatives, but a lot will depend on price. Due to the Premier League’s Profit and Sustainability rules, United have a limited transfer budget this summer so, if they are to bring in more support for Rasmus Hojlund up front, they are unlikely to spend a huge amount of money. Despite Cunha’s apparent interest in joining the club, he is not expected to be the top target.
