Leeds fans discuss new report, says Whites have intensified talks for European club's no.10
A report from Brazil has claimed that Leeds United are intensifying talks to sign Hertha Berlin magician Matheus Cunha this summer. The Brazilian has impressed in the Bundesliga over the past 18 months with Hertha, after his move from Leipzig. Leeds fans have reacted, and are excited by Cunha.
Still only 22, Cunha joined Hertha from Leipzig in January 2020 and has hit the ground running. Clocking up 39 appearances in that time – with a pandemic coming just weeks after joining – the Brazilian has scored 13 and created 10. Little surprise, then, that Leeds are interested, among others.
But UOL Esporte now claim that Leeds are looking to steal a march on their rivals by intensifying talks for the playmaker. It is believed that Leeds are certainly leading the race to get him. Even Cunha himself seems keen, replying to a fan on Instagram when he asked if he wants to join Leeds.
What are Leeds fans saying about Cunha?
Obviously, there is a lot of excitment at the prospect of seeing Cunha in a Leeds shirt. The South American talent has bags of skill and flair – as well as goals and assists. Raphinha has delighted Leeds fans since coming in, and adding another South American in the final third is even more exciting.
Leeds fans reacted to the reports on social media with delight. Many believe he could be a sensational signing and at the price touted – between £21.5million and £26million – some think he is a bargain.
