Could Ten Hag's £42 Million Move For Striker Gift Him His Own Samuel Etoo?

Could Ten Hag be on the verge of resolving his side's attacking struggles with a move to acquire his own Samuel Etoo? He could certainly do so. According to United Focus, Manchester United are pressing to bring Matheus Cunha to Old Trafford in a deal worth up to £42 million.

So where does Cunha's resemblance to Etoo come from? According to United Focus, Paolo Tremazani compared the Brazilian's style of play to that of Samuel Etoo during his Inter Milan days.

"He has a deadly shot; you can never stop him, and he has incredible acceleration," said Tremazani of Cunha.

"He is an extraordinary boy. A hard worker with a great desire to improve, he is always focused and on the game. He is very mature from this point of view.

"He could be like Mourinho’s (Samuel) Eto’o at Inter: an all-out striker. Deadly up front, but also one who runs and sacrifices a lot for the team."

With Ronaldo potentially leaving before the transfer deadline, Manchester United must sign a striker in order to have enough options forward in their attack. Cunha is not a prolific goal scorer like Ronaldo, with only 7 goals in 37 games for Atleti last season. But if Tremazani's analysis is correct, Ten Hag may be getting a decent attacker to rely on.
