Darwin Nunez, the 22 year old Benfica star man, arguably one of the best young attackers in the world right now with greater prospects, longer height and clinical finishing that made him a better talent than many other experienced strikers at the moment.
On this aspect, Portuguese giant already initiated a staggering price tag of about 110 million Euros for Nunez in the first place but the Uruguayan striker is in search for more Champions League football that paved the way to tempt other European giants to lure him out of Benfica.
Liverpool was the first English giant to show massive interest for Nunez as they claimed to splash their cash in this summer’s transfer market in search for a new center forward after the rejection of Sadio Mane’s contract proposal who is now keen on a move to Bayern Munich.
Manchester United also showed their eagerness to land Darwin Nunez after their appointment of Dutch manager Erik Ten Hag from Ajax Amsterdam who claimed to be a great admirer of the Benfica prodigy.
Jurgen Klopp already demonstrated his true feelings about Nunez as he reportedly declared that there would be a ‘Challenge’ for Liverpool to beat other big clubs inside and outside of England for this excellent talent.
Soccer experts in UK are seen hyped on this issue as they predicted that a ‘War‘ already begun when United entered the race for Darwin following the Reds’ interest.
As Manchester United missed out the chance to qualify for next season’s UCL, it would be a very difficult task for them to entice Nunez out from the Portuguese Capital as the striker outlined his passion for longer Champions League football.
The Anfield side might get a slighter advantage over Red Devils with guaranteed UCL spot for next season but their financial constraints might backfire during splashing the cash for this Uruguayan striker.
