Fabrizio Romano confirms agreement between Liverpool & Man Utd ahead of opening Nunez bid

Posted by

With interest gathering over Darwin Nunez ahead of the opening of the summer window, Benfica will no doubt be hoping to encourage a bidding war for their most valuable asset.

It’s a situation both Liverpool and Manchester are keen to avoid in their respective pursuits of the 22-year-old, however, as Fabrizio Romano reports in a tweet.

An opening bid of £68m is close to the £66m threshold the Reds were hoping to stay close to in any potential move for the Uruguayan, though it’s a figure the club is expected to exceed.

Some sources have claimed that an amount in excess of £80m is the rough ballpark amount the Primeira Liga outfit are aiming for – a fee that would break our current transfer record held by Virgil van Dijk’s £75m move from Southampton.

With Sadio Mane on the way out, however, and Liverpool in need of a quality replacement who can bring down the average age of the forward line, there are few options in world football more suitable to the task than Nunez.
