Atletico Madrid sign Matheus Cunha

Baku, August 25, AZERTAC

Atletico Madrid have confirmed the signing of Matheus Cunha from Hertha Berlin, as Los Colchoneros' search for a forward finally comes to an end, according to Marca.

The 22-year-old may not be in the mould of Luis Suarez, instead having a playing style more similar to that of Angel Correa, but he has been brought to Atletico to complete Diego Simeone's attack.

His arrival comes after Atletico failed to reach an agreement with Fiorentina for Dusan Vlahovic, who is more of a typical No.9. Earlier in the summer Los Colchoneros had also tried to see if they could tempt Antoine Griezmann away from Barcelona, but no agreement was reached.

Having now joined Atletico for a fee in the region of 30 million euros, Cunha will be looking to challenge Suarez, Correa and Joao Felix for a spot in Simeone's starting line-up.
