With United in the market for a new striker in the summer, they’ve been linked with the Uruguay international after an outstanding season at Benfica.
Manchester United have been handed a big boost ahead of the summer, with Darwin Nunez reportedly setting his sights on a move to the Premier League.
United are likely to be in the market for a new striker this summer, with interim boss Ralf Rangnick suggesting the club need at least two more additions in attack. Having seen their neighbours Manchester City land Erling Haaland, the need for some quality has increased.
Nunez would certainly offer that, having enjoyed an outstanding season with Benfica. The Uruguay international has caught the attention of plenty of top clubs with his performances in Portugal and across Europe this season.
United are among the sides to have been linked with a move for the 22-year-old, and they may have been handed a major advantage. According to The Mirror, Nunez is eyeing up a move to the Premier League in the summer, although there may still be a sticking point over a potential transfer to Old Trafford.
The striker is said to want Champions League football, which could work against United, having failed in their attempts to secure a top four finish. Bayern Munich and Atletico Madrid are also said to be watching developments with Nunez in the hope of luring him away from a potential move to England.
