Matheus Cunha officially becomes Wolverhampton player


Christmas is a season of giving, and as Wolves announced the impending arrival of Atletico Madrid attacker Matheus Cunha, they also received some kindness of their own.

Under the condition that he obtains a work permit, the Brazilian international will sign a one-year loan agreement with Wolves on January 1 that, should certain conditions be met, will turn into a permanent contract lasting until 2027.

Since joining the Premier League team, Wolves manager Julen Lopetegui will make the 23-year-old his first hire at Molineux.

Matheus Cunha will join Wolves on loan on January 1 and will become Julen Lopetegui’s first signing as the team’s head coach, according to a statement on the club’s website.

The loan move, which will automatically become a permanent one until 2027, should certain stipulations be activated, was finalised earlier this week when the Brazilian international flew to the UK and finished his medical.

The former Sion, RB Leipzig, and Hertha Berlin forward signed with Atletico in the summer of 2021, scoring seven goals in all competitions the previous campaign. However, he has had difficulty getting playing time this year.

He has already earned eight senior caps and assisted Brazil in winning gold in the postponed Tokyo Olympics last summer, but was left off the team for the most recent World Cup in Qatar.

‘I’m incredibly excited to be a part of this group and to be a part of this club; it’s a great club,’ Cunha said on the club’s website.

The most important thing, in my opinion, is that I’m happy as a child. I’m excited to play in the Premier League and for Wolverhampton.

He (Lopetegui) has a strong attitude and is a big coach, says Cunha.

“He informed me about a great initiative Wolverhampton has, and I believe a lot in it, and I believe in him.”

Cunha added: “He’s a very good man, a really smiley guy, a truly Brazilian guy, and we’re constantly smiling together.” Cunha will join former Atletico teammate Diego Costa at Molineux.”

I called him, and he replied, “Please come. Please, kindly. There are many people here. It’s incredible. The men are nice.”
