Leeds one step away from Matheus Cunha signing - report

Leeds United are only one step away from signing Hertha Berlin attacker Matheus Cunha, according to Rudy Galetti.

The Italian journalist has shared that the Whites are ready to offer £23.2million to complete the signing.

Cunha is set to start and shine for Brazil at the Olympics this summer, and could also be on the move at club level.

Galetti, the Calciomercato journalist shared the major update on his personal Twitter account on Sunday evening that is surely set to excite every fan at Elland Road.

“Premier League: Leeds United one step away from Cunha,”

We have been fed so many different stories in the past week that we are finding it hard to believe anything.

That is usually the Leeds way, but since Marcelo Bielsa came to the club, it has added every single South American player under the sun to the list.

Graham Smyth shared over the weekend that Cunha is a player of interest, but that Bielsa wouldn’t have demanded his signing.

With that being said, any imminent arrival for the Brazilian appears unlikely, although being linked with these types of players is definitely exciting.

Cunha has been catching the headlines in Germany for years now, and was even nominated for the Puskas Award recently for an outrageous effort.

The Brazilian needs more consistency in his game, and Bielsa could be the perfect man to bring that out of him moving forward.
