12-goal Premier League signing ‘would be missing link’ for Manchester United

Man United, davies

Wolves striker Matheus Cunha might be Manchester United’s “missing link”, according to Louis Saha.

Cunha’s current contract at Wolves, which he signed upon arrival last summer, runs through to 2027 but there has been alot of speculation that he is one player that could depart Wolves this summer.

The 25-year-old enjoyed an impressive first full campaign with Wolves,, racking up 12 goals and seven assists in the Premier League and he is reportedly a player that Manchester United are ready to splash £60 million on signing.

And amid the speculation and rumours – it has been claimed that he could be the missing link for United, That’s the claim of ex-Old Trafford attacker Louis Saha after the Brazilian’s first full season in the Premier League.

The 25-year-old, who has 11 caps, could cost close to £60million.But Saha told Betfred: “‘Every time I see him play, he’s very creative, very powerful.

“He can break any line, and that kind of skill he’s got is the missing link that United need.

“He’s a player that’s capable of accelerating the game, whether that’s by him passing the ball or dribbling, and he possesses a lot of quality.”

However – it appears Cunha has no intention of ditching Wolves for Man United just yet – with the forward quizzed on his future while in attendance at Botafogo’s victory over Athletic in his home town of Joao Pessoa.

‘Whenever I can, I come along [to Botafogo]. I always want to show that [the affection] is reciprocated,’ Cunha recently told Brazilian publication Globo Esporte.

‘Then we see that talk [regarding Manchester United]. But I’m very happy at Wolves.’

‘My focus is on resting and making the most of my time with my family. I’m very happy at Wolves,’ he added.

‘The focus now is on having better seasons and helping the club.

‘God willing, I’ll continue on this path.’

Ten Hag knows the type of player that he needs to sign this summer in order to get his side back in the hunt for Champions League football – but is Cunha really the answer for the Red Devils.

He has an impressive season for Wolves – but Manchester United are a massive step up for the man – he will not bang in 12 goals as the pressure will surely get to him.
