The famous Portuguese news source have mentioned that Liverpool have agreed a fee worth 100 million euros. They will initially pay 80 million euros (£68.5million) and the remaining 20 million euros in add-ons.
Nunez’ transfer will be the second most expensive in the history of Benfica, who sold Joao Felix to Atletico Madrid in a deal worth 120 million euros.
Manchester United have been interested in signing the 22-year-old forward as well but he wants to play under Jurgen Klopp at Anfield.
The lure of Champions League football has proved to be one of the major factors. United will be taking part in the second tier of European football (Europa League) next season.
As per Fabrizio Romano (The Guardian), the Merseysiders are ready to agree a five-year deal with the former Almeria striker, who could replace Sadio Mane. Liverpool are looking to get a fee of £40million for the African superstar.
In the recently concluded campaign, the young center forward started 32 games in all competitions for the Eagles and directly contributed in 38 goals (34 goals and 4 assists).
The signing of Darwin Nunez would be the ideal response to City’s capture of Erling Haaland. It could be an interesting battle next season. Let’s not get too excited just yet, let’s wait for an official announcement first.
One thought on “Liverpool agree £68.5m initial fee, seal total agreement with club to secure signing – Record today”
I hope its done fast, Nunez is like a younger Suarez and under the Energetic Personality of Klopp
will bring out the best in this young talented forward.
Look when Van Dijk and; Alisson were signed for a huge Fee Liverpool & Klopp knew that these World Famous Football stars would make a difference to the team, and they did, the stats proved what a great decision that was.
Now signing Nunez would actually be good, also because Mane will leave and Liverpool will get around 38m to 40m from Bayern, with Taki also put up for sale for 17m, and Nathan Phillips leaving too, and OX, they will easily recover their losses of the $85m.
Look the other factor is Man City has signed Haaland and Liverpool need to compete with Man City with Salah most likely to leave after a year that is why he did not sign the contract.
Then Signing Nunez makes perfect sense, even if it means the highest fee paid, what you are getting is a fast, aggressive, excellent dribbler, with a long term future with Liverpool. Go Reds Life will continue after Mane. I hope that Salah changes his mind about Barcelona, only time will tell for sure.
