After Liverpool became interested in Darwin Nunez, everyone began to wonder who this footballer was.
We can say that Darwin Nunez, the striker who made great progress and was followed by many football teams in Europe at his young age, has signed with Liverpool.
Liverpool, one of the Premier League teams, is nearing the end of the transfer of Darwin Nunez, who plays for Benfica.
Having lost to Real Madrid in the Champions League Final after finishing last season in the 2nd place in the league, Liverpool started the new pre-season transfer studies.
The English team, which could not get the contribution it expected from Roberto Firmino this season, is now counting the days for the transfer of Darwin Nunez, who is at the top of their list for the striker zone.
According to the news in the British press, Liverpool reached a definitive agreement with the player on the contract. Continuing the testimonial negotiations with the Portuguese team, Liverpool is expected to complete the transfer in exchange for a transfer fee of 80 million Euros and a bonus of 20 million Euros.
Benfica, Darwin Nunez Joint
Benfica transferred Darwin Nunez from Almeira, currently in the Spanish 2nd League, in September 2020, for a 24 million Euros testimonial and a 20 percent share of the subsequent sale.
20 percent of the profits from the transfer of the 22-year-old striker to Liverpool will go to Almeira. Accordingly, Almeira will gain another 20 to 25 million Euros from Nunez.
Liverpool and Benfica faced each other in the UEFA Champions League Quarter-Finals and Liverpool won the first match 3-1 away, drawing their name to the semi-finals by drawing 3-3 with their opponent at home.
After the second match played, Liverpool Manager Jurgen Klopp made laudatory statements for Nunez. The German coach said of Nunez: “He’s very strong and fast. He’s very calm in the final shots. He has a great career ahead of him if he stays healthy.”
Liverpool, one of the English Premier League teams, found the striker he was looking for. The Merseyside team agreed on everything to sign Benfica star Darwin Nunez.
Mane goes to Bayern
Liverpool Sporting Director Julian Ward conveyed to Bayern Munich that he found the £30 million offer from Mane insufficient while negotiating with Benfica for the transfer of Nunez.
After Manchester City’s £51m transfer fee for Erling Haaland, Liverpool is preparing to make a significant contribution to its squad on the way to the championship. The fact that Nunez is a versatile player will put Jürgen Klopp’s hand at ease. The star striker can play both on the left wing and the centre-forward, and scored 6 goals in the Champions League last season. Two of those goals were scored against Liverpool in the quarter-finals.
Nunez, who started his career in Penarol, one of the teams of his country, later transferred to Almeria from the Spanish second league. After scoring 16 goals in Spain, he moved on to Benfica, where he scored 48 goals in 85 games in total.
