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.
"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.
