Manchester United: Red Devils leading Darwin Nunez chase

Manchester United: Red Devils leading Darwin Nunez chase -Manchester United News

Manchester United are reportedly leading the way in the race to sign Benfica striker Darwin Nunez.

The Lowdown: Club-record deal?

Nunez, described as an ‘absolute beast’ on a Liverpool podcast last month following his display against the Reds, has been heavily linked with a £109m move to Old Trafford.

Should a transfer in that region go through, the 22-year-old would become United’s most-expensive signing of all time, eclipsing a £94.5m move for Paul Pogba.

New manager Erik ten Hag recently made an ‘express request’ regarding Nunez, and it looks as if CEO Richard Arnold is making progress over a potential deal.

The Latest: United leading the way

Sports Witness relayed an update from Record on Thursday regarding Nunez and Manchester United.

They claimed that the Red Devils aren’t only ‘attentive’ but are now ‘one of the best-placed clubs’ to sign the striker this summer, especially with Edinson Cavani set to leave and Marcus Rashford’s future up in the air.

The Verdict: Fingers crossed

You can see why Ten Hag would like to bring Nunez to the Premier League this summer. The Uruguayan has scored a whopping 34 goals in 40 games in all competitions this season, one of which came against Ten Hag’s Ajax to dump them out of the Champions League.

The Dutchman could have a shortage of attacking options when he arrives at the club, so landing Nunez, who has played as a centre-froward, second striker and left-winger, could prove to be an excellent piece of business both in the short and long term.

It looks as if a mega-money move will be one to keep an eye on when the transfer window opens, with Ten Hag possibly making a special request for Nunez following reports suggesting he’ll be making decisions on targets in the coming weeks.
