Report: Late Friday update suggests Liverpool have now beaten Manchester United to Nunez
Liverpool appear to have won the race to sign Darwin Nunez ahead of Manchester United, according to a late evening report from Goal tonight.
Both the Reds and United have been tracking Nunez this summer, with speculation intensifying this week as to where the Uruguayan ace was going to end up. All week it’s looked like Liverpool were front front runners. Then, United appeared out of nowhere to try and scupper things, with Ten Hag even said to have travelled to speak with Nunez and his team.
However, Goal has reported tonight that Manchester United will not entertain a bidding war with Liverpool and on that note, are prepared to walk away from the negotiating table.
It means the Reds now have a free run at signing Nunez, who scored more than 30 goals across all competitions last season. It’s claimed in the same report this evening that Liverpool could pay around £75m to land Nunez.
Liverpool are moving in the market in the forward area after reports have claimed Sadio Mane is off to Bayern Munich.
TBR’s View: Liverpool Fans Can Start To Believe Nunez Is Theirs
Well, this is quite the Friday night development in one of the biggest sagas of the summer already. Darwin Nunez is on his way to being a Liverpool player, or so it seems.
Jurgen Klopp has moved quickly here to get his man and you have to say, it looks like Liverpool are getting a fine player in the striker. His movement, finishing, and potential are excellent and you can see why Klopp wants him.
On the surface, it looks like a guarantee of goals by signing Nunez. If it is a done deal for Liverpool and Darwin Nunez, then fans can start to load the champagne buckets ready.
