Pedro Sepulveda has shared that Manchester United had attempted to snatch Darwin Nunez away from Liverpool by outbidding the Reds for his signature.
The Portuguese journalist noted that Liverpool remained a far more attractive option out of the two Premier League outfits for the Uruguayan regardless, with the 22-year-old now in the process of completing a medical for his potential new side.
The former Penarol star should, medical pending, move to join Jurgen Klopp’s side for a £64m up front fee, which could rise to £85m in total if the conditions of the add-ons attached are met.
