After bringing in Andre Onana from Inter Milan, Man United looked for another goalkeeper as a backup plan at an affordable price and targeted many names, including Braga’s Matheus. Finally, ltay Bayindir was recruited by the Red Devils under the release clause of 4.3 million pounds in the contract with Fenerbahce.
“When you are contacted and interested by a big European club, you are filled with emotions,” Matheus told TNT Sports.
You leave Brazil full of dreams and seeing these big clubs on TV. You follow them in the Champions League, Premier League. Great players played there, David Beckham, David De Gea…
The guys from Man United contacted me. I talked to coach Ten Hag.
Unfortunately, it was not successful. That is God’s plan. Maybe, if I go there, something will go wrong. But the important thing is that I feel very happy at this club.”
