Manchester United look set to join Tottenham on the sidelines as another transfer bridesmaid should Liverpool complete a move for exciting Benfica hitman, Darwin Nunez.

Reporting on negotiations between the two outfits on Twitter, Terrace Transfer Talk host Terry Flewers shared that the Red Devils had been ‘close to a deal’ with the Eagles for the 22-year-old striker.

According to reports in Portugal, an agreement has already been struck between the Merseysiders and the Primeira Liga-based side to the tune of £68m with performance-based add-ons attached.

Our proficiency in the transfer market under Michael Edwards is well known to many beyond the borders of Merseyside and it would appear that Julian Ward will not disappoint when it comes to preserving the legacy of the recruitment team’s former commander in chief.
