DONE DEAL: Erik Ten Hag Finally Confirms and Announces £68M Benfica Striker to Replace Pogba
That’s according to a re’cent report from leading transfer expert and fabrizo Romano Temm’ybiz colum’nist, who has claimed Jurgen Klopp’s Reds have of’fered Benfica as much as £68m (€80m) for the prol’ific striker.
Although it is expected that Urugu’ay’s Nunez will leave Portugal this summer, his poten’tial destination remains unce’rtain.
Liverpool appear to be clear frontr’unners to sign the talented young 22-year-old, but ri’vals Manc’hester United have also been in the mix.
However, with the Red Devils beli’eved to be upping the ante when it comes to signing midfi’elder Frenkie De Jongfrom Barcelona (TalkSPORT), fan’s could very well see the 20-time league winners back do:wn in the race to land Nunez, leaving their bitter-rivals wi’th a clear and unchallenged path to transfer suc’cess.
Since joining Benfica in 2020, Nun’ez, who has three years left on his deal, has gone on to fe’ature in 84 matches, in all competitions, directly contrib’uting to an impressive 63 goals along the w’ay.
