Matheus Cunha issues telling response after fan asks if he will join Man Utd this summer

The 25-year-old Brazilian forward finished the 2023/24 season with 22 goal involvements to his name.

Matheus Cunha has been asked if he will join Manchester United this summer as the Brazilian continues to be linked with a big-money move.

The 25-year-old forward, who was one of Wolves' standout performers last season, finished the 2023/24 campaign with 22 goal involvements to his name.

As a result of that fine form, Cunha has been strongly linked with a transfer to Old Trafford. In fact, United have identified the Brazil international as one of their 'priority signings', according to The Mirror.

United scouts 'consistently tracked' the £60 million-rated player last season and the above report suggests the Reds would be willing to double his £60,000 wages.

After being identified as the 'perfect profile' for co-owner Sir Jim Ratcliffe, who is in charge of football operations at Old Trafford, Cunha has now responded to the links.

Speaking to a fan in the streets, he said per @mohakrf: "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."

Cunha appeared to leave the door open for a move but in the past, he has played down a potential transfer.

At the end of the season, he said he was "very excited" for the future with Wolves.

"I am happy, that is the most important thing for me," Cunha said. “I passed moments that I don’t want to pass again. Moments where I do not feel like I want to play football, where I feel very bad. Now I feel very happy and you want to do your best.

The former RB Leipzig forward added: “I look forward with excitement at Wolves. Maybe we can show we are not a team to be relegated to the Championship. Maybe we can show we are a team that can go for Europe. I hope so. We never know the future but I hope so. We can show everyone the potential that we have.”

Cunha has three years remaning on his contract at Wolves following his permanent move in late 2022.
