La Liga: Brazil striker Cunha joins Atletico Madrid from Hertha


Atletico Madrid have signed Brazil striker Matheus Cunha on a five-year-deal from Bundesliga club Hertha Berlin, both outfits confirmed on Wednesday.

The transfer fee is reportedly around €30 million for the 22-year-old who scored 13 goals in 40 games for Hertha in the last 18 months since joining from their German rivals RB Leipzig.

“Matheus was looking for a new challenge and has found it at a Champions League club in Spain,” said Hertha sports director Fredi Bobic.
