Manchester United have been linked with numerous quality center forwards and Darwin Nunez is one of them.
The Uruguayan international is linked with a move away from Benfica this summer and latest reports indicate that he might be available for a bargain fee.
Last month, The Athletic reported that a fee of 70 million euros would be required to lure the South American striker. Moreover, in Spain, AS revealed that Man Utd are favorites to secure his signature.
Today, David Ornstein has claimed that Man United have a serious interest in signing the Liga Nos superstar. The renowned journalist has stated that in contrast to previously mentioned figures, a fee of 60 million euros (£51million) can be agreed to sign him from the Eagles.
Nunez was the top scorer in the recently concluded Primeira Liga campaign. He found the net 26 times to help Benfica book a place in the UEFA Champions League for the next season.
The dilemma at Old Trafford is that Man United will not be taking part in the continent’s top tier tournament.
This term, the former Almeria star scored 6 goals in the European Cup against big teams like Barcelona, Bayern, Ajax and Liverpool.
He found the net both home and away against Klopp’s men but the Merseysiders knocked Benfica out of the competition in the last eight and will collide against Real Madrid in the final on 28th May.
