Leeds attempted to sign the £44 million star in January 2023; this season, he has nine goals in the Premier League.
These days, wolves make for fantastic viewing. The team that Leeds United defeated last season has been much improved by Gary O’Neil; one player who has improved is Matheus Cunha.
Wolves ended in 13th place last season, just three points above 16th. They had little money. They fired their manager in the summer and sold players for more over £100 million. It was feasible to be demoted.
O’Neil took Julen Lopetegui’s position, and he makes the most of the talent he does have at his disposal. Under O’Neil, players like Matt Doherty, Pedro Neto, Rayan Ait-Nouri, and Craig Dawson have excelled.
With fifteen games remaining in the season, O’Neil has already tallied 32 points for Wolves, who won 41 points the previous year. Cunha and many more talents are among the guys he is currently getting the best out of.
In January 2023, the former star of Atletico Madrid signed a loan deal with Wolves worth £44 million, but he failed. Just two goals and one assist in his first 20 games. He has made 27 appearances this season.

Matheus Cunha, who has nine Premier League goals, was desired by Leeds.
Cunha has contributed seven assists and 11 goals throughout that period. Nine goals and six assists in his 23 League outings this season. He scored a hat-trick on Sunday to help Wolves defeat Chelsea 4-2 in West London.
It was only a year ago that Leeds expressed interest in signing Cunha. After being connected to him throughout Marcelo Bielsa’s tenure, Leeds attempted to sign him in the winter transfer window of 2023. Leeds expressed “serious interest.”
Cunha was drawn to Wolves, nevertheless, maybe because of the team’s Portuguese-speaking or Brazilian players. However, his performance for Wolves will have demonstrated why Leeds was interested in signing him.
