REPORT: Liverpool Has Reached Transfer Agreement With Darwin Nunez

Darwin Nunez has been one of the hottest players on the transfer market following his productive season with Benfica, which saw them reach the UEFA Champions League Quarter-Finals last season. The Uruguayan has reportedly reached an agreement with Liverpool to join the club this summer, according to The ‘Athletic’.

Darwin Nunez was initially linked with a move to Manchester United this summer, and the Premier League side were keen to sign him. However, Darwin Nunez revealed that he wants to play at a club that can offer him UEFA Champions League football, which is impossible at Manchester United, as they finished 6th in the Premier League table and will be playing in the Europa League next season.

According to reports, Liverpool will make the Benfica star their record signing, with media outlet FootballTransfers, revealing that Nunez has agreed on a five-year contract with Liverpool until 2027. However, there is no confirmation on the salary yet, but the Uruguayan striker should earn northwards of €250,000 per week.

According to reports, Liverpool and Benfica are also close to reaching an agreement on a transfer fee for Uruguayan. Benfica are reportedly demanding €80m plus €20m in add-ons, which would take the deal to over €100m, and Liverpool are moving closer to meeting the Portuguese club’s demands, with Sadio Mane set to leave the club amidst strong interest from Bayern Munich.

Darwin Nunez could be Liverpool’s most expensive signing in the history of the club if he is signed from Benfica, surpassing the €84.5m which was used to sign Virgil van Dijk from Southampton in 2018, with the Dutchman turning out to be one of Liverpool’s best signings, after 3 successful years at Anfield, in which he has been consistent.

Darwin Nunez gained the attention of Europe’s elite clubs in 2021-22, after scoring a brilliant 34 goals in 41 games for Benfica. The Uruguayan striker scored 6 goals in 10 matches in the UEFA Champions League and managed to score against top teams like Barçelona, Ajax, and Liverpool.
