Manchester United are said to rival Liverpool for the signing of Darwin Nunez.

According to Italian football Fabrizio Romano, the Merseyside club is planning to put in a verbal bid to test the waters with SL Benfica.


The proposed €80 million (N35.8billion) is said to be the minimum asking price of the Portuguese club for Nunez.

Benfica are known to demand a hefty fee for their young stars. Joao Felix was a prime example, who went for £113 million (N61billion) in the summer of 2019.

Liverpool are considered strong contenders and despite reports stating otherwise, it seems that United will have to fight their arch-rivals for the services of the Uruguayan.

Sadio Mane leaving Liverpool means Jurgen Klopp will be adamant to revamp his attacking options this summer.

Nunez is quick, strong and the ideal number nine for the English Premier League.

However, many have questioned his technical ability and whether he could fit in with Erik ten Hag’s style of play.

United must quickly decide the profile of striker they want to buy, and act accordingly.
