Matheus Cunha confirms Atletico Madrid exit
Matheus Cunha has stated that he will depart Atletico Madrid in January in order to join Wolves, who are rumored to be moving to the Premier League.
Cunha joined Atletico from Hertha Berlin in 2021 for approximately €26 million, but during his first 18 months in the Spanish city, he has had trouble settling in.
Only two of the forward’s 10 starts in La Liga’s first half of the current season came from the Brazilian. He scored seven goals in all competitions in 2021–2022, but none of his 17 games in 2022–23 have resulted in goals.
“Loving and feeling loves. Things like that will never change,” Cunha wrote in a statement on Instagram.
“Identifying with something, feeling important, feeling affection and feeling part of a whole family is different. To you, Atleticos, thank you from the bottom of my heart.
“You have fantastic players. You have fans who make you feel at home even on the other side of the world.
“Football is like that, like any other job, there are those who are in charge, they have their hierarchies and there are those who make the decisions, and then you also have to make yours. My heart will always have a piece of Atleti!
“You always had my everything, simply because I felt that you gave me everything. Thank you very much.”
