Wolves sign Matheus Cunha from Atletico on loan with deal including €40m option to buy clause

Wolves have officially announced the loan signing of Matheus Cunha from Atletico Madrid. The agreement also contains a €40 million buyout option.

On Christmas Day, it was announced that Cunha would be arriving, initially on loan through the end of the season. He becomes the first player signed by Julen Lopetegui since taking over at Molineux.

Cunha joined Atletico in 2021, but under Diego Simeone, he has been a disappointment. He made 17 appearances this season without scoring a goal, which caused him to fall further down the pecking order and cost him a spot on Brazil’s World Cup squad. This week, he appeared to take a final shot at Simeone by stressing the value of “feeling loved” in a social media post.

The Brazilian international flew to the UK and completed his medical earlier in the week, finalising a loan move which will automatically become a permanent deal until 2027, should certain clauses be triggered,” a club statement read.

The offensive player won’t be available for Wolves’ holiday matches against Everton and Manchester United, but he might make his debut on January 4 against Aston Villa.
