What has been suggested for days is now fixed: Matheus Cunha (22) is leaving Hertha and switching to Atletico Madrid.
The Spanish champions should transfer at least 30 million euros to Berlin – new sales record for Hertha thanks to the new maker Fredi Bobic (49)! So far, Valentino Lazaro (25) held the record with 22.4 million euros when he moved to Inter Milan in 2019.
Sports director Bobic said on Sunday at BILD LIVE, the BILD TV station: “At Cunha, other clubs are on the prowl.”
Now the Madrilenians make the race, agree with Hertha on a transfer. Another club is said to have been at Cunha’s turn until Monday evening: According to reports, Premier League club Everton lured the Brazilian.
But Cunha’s dream club is Atletico! There the Olympic champion can play alongside stars like Luis Suarez (34, ex-Barcelona) and Joao Felix (21) in the Champions League.
Why is Hertha Cunha giving up? The offensive star is the best footballer. Since moving from Leipzig in January 2020 (€ 18 million transfer fee), Cunha has scored 13 goals in 40 games and played ten more.
However, the Berlin fighters want to be on the field. In addition, Cunha wanted to leave, Bobic can cash in, both sides are happy.
Cunha is now on the hunt for goals for Atletico!
