Klopp has already found his Mane replacement; wants 34-goal hitman to come in for 23-goal Liverpool attacker – Correio da Manha

Posted by

Liverpool and Jurgen Klopp have reportedly identified Benfica’s Darwin Nunez as the ideal replacement for Sadio Mane.

This update comes courtesy of Correio da Manha, with the publication claiming that fans could see developments in a move for the 22-year-old this week.

The Reds’ No.10 has confirmed to teammates that he will be departing Anfield this summer, with Bayern Munich said to be in the lead for his signature.

The Uruguayan international has enjoyed a phenomenal campaign in the Portuguese top-flight, amassing 38 goal contributions (including 34 goals) in 41 games (across all competitions).

Even taking into account the difference in quality between the Primeira Liga and the Premier League, those are pretty impressive numbers from a reported Liverpool target and could certainly, at the very least, entice some degree of interest from our recruitment team given the quality of player we’re seeing leave.

Bearing in mind how much of a success Luis Diaz has proved to be in Merseyside, returning to Portugal once more to snap up another highly-rated talent wouldn’t necessarily be the worst idea.

  1. If LFC can sign Nunez as the reports claim, that would be nailing the nail on the head by LFC.As a supporter of LFC I would like us to strengthen our mdfield as well so that we can be competetive again.I like Sadio Mane but there is notching that can be done to change his decision.Up the Reds.You will never walk alone.

  2. In my opion we have never replaced courtino who’s a game changer,has got the ability to change a game.No one in our midfield is consistent taking free kicks and hitting the target from 20/25 yards like Courtino use to.Fabinho is brilliant at breaking up attacks and getting a foot in, he’s the best at that, Henderson can see a pass as can Thiago.Keita isn’t good enough and Jones isn’t cutting it, Hopefully Elliott is our best bet and the guy from Fulham will do the business,time will tell.

  3. midfield is one of the main area LFC should focus on. If Mane really want to go… just grant his wish and LFC need to sign a player like nunez. Nunez can cover both Mane and Bobby position. For the midfield area… if LFC can sign either Gavi or Tchouameni, it will boost our midfield.

  4. Sadio Mané wants to leave Liverpool. Oh yes let Mané be fulfilled. We are Liverpool and no player is greater than us. Although Mané has been a great servant, nobody can Mané to blackmail that big institution.
    As Mané wants to leave Liverpool let’s quickly find a better replacement that will eclipse Mané’s record. Let’s get strong in adversity as we remain the same mighty Liverpool!

  5. I wish Salah leaves and Mane stays.. Salah has Destroyed Liverpool so many times.. Salah will drop in form next season

  6. Where did you see that Mané is blackmailing the institution?? BTW he is paid 100K a week which is probably amongst the lowest salary for a superstar in the premier.

  7. We Liverpool fans around the world know that Mane served a lot the club and he has done all his best to his club so far. but if his decision is to leave the club, let him go and wish him all the best. in another ways, let’s find some who can replace him. Y.N.W.A.❤
