Atletico Madrid are bracing themselves for a busy January transfer window ahead as the Spanish giants look to offload a number of unwanted players in an attempt to balance the books.

This is because Atleti faced shock elimination from the UEFA Champions League group stages earlier this season. Finishing fourth in the group meant that they are not only out of UCL, but are also ineligible to play in the UEFA Europa League during the second half of the campaign.

One of the players tipped to depart Atletico Madrid is Matheus Cunha. The club are not willing to carry his wages throughout the rest of the season and believe his sale can be an excellent avenue for the club to generate fresh revenue.

Wolves were primarily the club interested in the services of Cunha. And according to a report from 90 Min, they firmly remain in the chase to sign the Brazilian, who could depart Atletico Madrid on a loan deal with an option to leave the club permanently at the end of the season.

However, the same report suggests that Wolves may face stiff competition in the race to sign Cunha. This is because a number of clubs have already contacted the player’s representative, exploring the possibility of a January switch.

Most importantly, Cunha’s agents have also contacted Premier League’s top guns such as Liverpool, Manchester United and Newcastle United, offering them the opportunity to snap up the player in the upcoming January transfer window.

The loan-friendly option to sign Cunha means there will not be any shortage of suitors for the Brazilian. Even the top clubs may consider going for the former Hertha Berlin starlet, who is known for his skill and versatility in the final third.

Manchester United and Liverpool may entertain the idea of signing a new forward in the upcoming January transfer window. The former have bid goodbye to Cristiano Ronaldo and will need a replacement while the latter will be without Luis Diaz for close to three months.

Chelsea, who were looking for attacking reinforcements following the injury of Armando Broja, have also been offered a chance to sign Cunha.

Therefore, it will be interesting to see what the future holds for Matheus Cunha, who will look to rebuild his career after leaving the Civitas Metropolitano next month.

Coming off a highly controversial game against Almeria, Real Madrid will now travel to Gran Canaria to take on Las Palmas tomorrow as part of the early kick-off.

Carlo Ancelotti spoke about the clash tomorrow, starting off by confirming his goalkeeper for tomorrow, “Lunin will start tomorrow.”

He also added that Madrid were looking to get back to their usual level after back-to-back poor performances, one of which included elimination against Atletico Madrid in the Copa del Rey round of 16.

“We are motivated to return to our best level after 2 bad games.”

The Italian gaffer also commented on the biggest football story in the world today, which was Jurgen Klopp announcing his decision to leave Liverpool at the end of the season.

“It’s quite surprising, I understand. Working for a long time with the same club and players lowers your motivation a bit. He’s doing a fantastic job at Liverpool.”

And of course, Ancelotti also spoke about the leaked VAR audiovisual, some of which are highly controversial for all parties involved. Barcelona coach and players have also commented on the same, in light of the Negreira case.

“They have talked a lot. Everyone knows what has happened in the last 20 years in Spanish football. The Civil Guard is carrying out an investigations. That is the real problem of Spanish football.”

Luckily for the manager and fans, all injured players — minus the ACL trio of David Alaba, Eder Militao, and Thibaut Courtois — are available. Jude Bellingham is suspended, however.

“Everyone is available now after the recent period of injuries.”

“Making up for Bellingham’s absence tomorrow? Brahim and Joselu are available options. They were able to show themselves after I relied on them as substitutes,” he added.

And as far as Militao and Courtois are concerned, both of whom tore their ACL early in the season, Ancelotti suggested that they could make their return before the season ends.

“Courtois and Militão both have the option to play this season. The recovery process is going very well, they are training on an individual level. It is February and these types of injuries last 6-8 months, so I think they will recover before the end of the season.”
