Matheus Cunha transfer news – latest odds: Atletico forward more likely to stay after Man Utd 'snub' | The Sun

MATHEUS CUNHA looks more likely to stay at Atletico Madrid this summer than make the switch to Manchester United – or anyone else for that matter.

That's according to Sky Bet who price the forward at 4/9 to remain in the Spanish capital following the transfer window.

United chiefs were reportedly readying a £45million bid for the 23-year-old.

With Cristiano Ronaldo's future up in the air, the club have lined up targets to replace him.

The Premier League's bottom side have had a bid for Marko Arnautovic rejected, though are said to be in for Jamie Vardy and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

Cunha is another name they have been linked with as they desperately seek attacking reinforcements.

Reports in Spain suggest a move for the forward could amount to nothing as he snubbed any thought of an approach.

Atletico are looking to make sales to raise much-needed funds though it's understood that might not include Cunha.

Diego Simeone also stated he 'trusted' Cunha and would seem unwilling to let him leave, unless his £70million release clause was met.

He scored six goals in 29 La Liga games for Atletico last season.

And that was after only joining the club last summer, penning a five-year deal from Hertha Berlin.

The odds would appear stacked against United making the signing but they are just 7/4 to get a deal complete.

That sits just behind the 4/9 with Sky Bet for him to stay at Atletico for this season.

Newcastle are in the betting too – as they are with most players – as they seek to bolster their attacking options in the hunt for a European place this season.

They sit at 20/1, though, which is ahead of Liverpool and Manchester City who are the only other sides quoted in the market but at 33/1.
