Hertha Berlin has no immediate plans to sell current forward Matheus Cunha amid interest from Paris Saint-Germain.
Cunha signed with Hertha from RB Leipzig over the winter transfer window earlier this year. The Brazilian forward went on to have a strong second half of the season as he recorded five league goals for the club, including a score against Bayer Leverkusen in a 2-0 win. Cunha’s impressive second half showings are why Hertha does not want to sell the talent this summer. Hertha Berlin sporting director Michael Preetz further explained to Kicker (via Westdeutsche Zeitung) on why the club is adamant about keeping Cunha.
“We didn’t bring Matheus Cunha in winter to sell him again in summer,” Preetz said. “He is a central factor in our planning.”
PSG has shown interest in a deal for Cunha but according to a July report from the German-based outlet Bild, the club would have to pay up €50 million in order for Hertha to even consider selling the up-and-coming promising Bundesliga talent.
