Fabrizio Romano: Liverpool prepare transfer bid for Manchester United target Darwin Nunez
According to the journalist Fabrizio Romano on Twitter, Liverpool are currently preparing to make a bid for Darwin Nunez, who is a transfer target for Manchester United. He has emerged to become one of the most sought after attackers in world football following his impressive 2021-22 campaign.
Man United have already expressed their interest in signing Nunez as they look to improve their options on the frontline this summer. They have maintained contact with his representative regarding a potential move but will now face increased pressure from the Reds for his services.
Jurgen Klopp’s side are looking to table an €80million plus add-ons offer to Benfica to secure the Uruguayan’s signature. Verbal discussions are ongoing between the two clubs as they look to reach an agreement regarding a potential transfer move. Romano further revealed that the next few hours or days could be crucial as the FA Cup winners wait for the follow-up process to their approach.
Can Man Utd beat Liverpool?
The competition from the Merseysiders cannot be taken lightly in any case, as they are in a far superior position than us right now. They are among the favourites for every possible trophy that is available to be won, with Champions League football also giving them an added edge making them an attractive proposition indeed.
As such, the Manchester board must not sit idly by and plan an offensive from their front to prevent getting leapfrogged in this transfer race. Then again, it is claimed that we have no plans to enter into a bidding war just like the Carabao Cup champions, so it will be interesting to see our response to this new update.
We cannot lose out on a potential superstar who can lead our attack in the future, especially to our bitter rivals. Then again, it would be a stern challenge to convince the 22-year-old to choose us even if we are in a delicate situation at the moment.

Perhaps we could use the prospect of being the face of Erik ten Hag’s project moving forward to make our case with the South American forward. Furthermore, helping us back to our glory days would be more of a challenge than joining a side who are already a title contender as of now.
Benfica are set to decide on the due proposal from Klopp’s team shortly as they are already aware of the offer following the verbal talks. Liverpool are also willing to give Nunez a five-year contract right now, so we must be ready to quickly respond so that they would not beat us to finalise a move.
