Matheus Cunha has generated plenty of buzz with his performances for Hertha BSC following his January move to Berlin from RB Leipzig.

Having netted 10 times and made six assists for the German capital so far, Cunha has been linked with the likes of Paris Saint-Germain and Inter, but Hertha general manager Michael Preetz is confident the 21-year-old has no intentions of leaving anytime soon.

"When he moved from Leipzig to Berlin in the winter, it was important for him to make sure that he would make his mark here. You can't make your mark if you're involved in a transfer every six or 12 months, but only if you get involved with the club and the city. And that is what Matheus does in Berlin," Preetz told Kicker.

"The declared goal - his and ours - is that we develop together in the direction of playing internationally. He has great individual quality. Matheus undoubtedly has a path to follow. We want to go the same way for as long as possible."

Cunha's contract with Hertha expires in 2024.
