pour Liverpool met the paquet and 100 million to Darwin Nunez

Revealing the Benfica Eagles this season, Uruguayan international Darwin Nunez is ardemment courtesy of Liverpool, and club that has seen him deploy his wings in the Champions League. His arrival at the Reds seems to be just a matter of time and he will face a very large check.

Darwin Nunez will celebrate his 23rd birthday, on June 26. Maybe in the skin of a Liverpool player. Sadio Mané has not left the Reds yet, but his replacement is all found. Darwin Nunez landed in Lisbon in 2020 with the most expensive player ethic in the history of Benfica (24 million euros). What could have happened on the shores of the Mersey if the figures circulating in the Portuguese press had never been exact. Liverpool could spend 80 million euros (maybe 20 million bonus), or more than the amount spent to attract Virgil van Dijk at the time (75 million), the club’s record in terms of transfer. Darwin Nunez will thus join the Almeria club (in the second division) in European gratin in just two years. A sacred envelope for this Peñarol -formed player.

Van Dijk and Klopp under the charm

Après une première année mitigée au Portugal, the most important international uruguayen and explosé cette saison. In total, Nunez signed 47 buts and 16 passing decisives in 84 matches sous le maillot rouge des Aigles, 34 but in 41 matches in cette saison, toutes compétitions confondues. One especially cleared the screen in the Champions League, finding the path of the fixtures against Barcelona, ​​Bayern Munich, and especially twice against Liverpool, despite being eliminated in the quarter -finals of the C1. Impitoyable against the bigs, Darwin Nunez was picked up by Jürgen Klopp’s sidekick, full of admiration after the double confrontation.

The German technician did not miss the opportunity to celebrate the performance of a “very handsome boy and a good player too”. “Really good, really good, Klopp had evaluated, under the charm. I knew him before, but he played against me this time. Physically strong, fast, very calm in the finish. Really good. If he stays well health, it’s a great career waiting for him. “

Virgil Van Dijk had also made it clear to what extent he appreciated the attacker, going as far as citing among the five opponents the most coveted he had ever faced, with Sergio Agüero, Lionel Messi, Kylian Mbappé and Erling Haaland. Nothing but that.

The future of the Reds is under attack

But if he is an attacker whose filiation is more than obvious, it is well with former Parisian Edinson Cavani with whom the filiation is more than obvious. Powerful, athletic, fast and able to repeat the efforts without repetition, the Uruguayan international is undefeated in the repair surface at its height of 1.87m. Most often from the right foot, but also from the left, from the head as well, whatever its position on the surface, Nunez showed that he was able to mark in different ways. He played perfectly against that of Liverpool.

Mohamed Salah, who will turn 30 on Wednesday, said he will stay in Liverpool next season. But the Egyptian’s absence of extension, under contract until 2023, like Roberto Firmino’s, added to Sadio Mané’s departure prospects makes this recruitment even more crucial in Klopp’s business renewal process. With Diogo Jota and Luis Díaz, both 25, Darwin Núñez represents the future of the Reds.
