Manchester United fans have loved Darwin Nunez’s performance against Liverpool, and some are convinced the Red Devils have to sign him.
Nunez has continued to impress for the Portuguese side, and he was on the scoresheet in the reverse fixture last week. The Uruguayan international arrived at Benfica in 2020, and he has gone on to find the net 30 times in 53 appearances.
And his goals have earned him suitors in the Premier League including United, Liverpool, and Newcastle United. But after his latest display at Anfield, United fans are convinced he has to make the move to Old Trafford in the summer.
One fan tweeted: “Darwin Nunez actually looks top top quality, need him at @ManUtd.”
“Darwin Nunez is the dream. The problem is there isn’t that many great number 9s. [Erling] Haaland aside. I’m not paying over 40m for Isak let alone 70m,” another added. While a third tweeted: “@ManUtd just sign Darwin Nunez thanks.”
A fourth added: “The cheaper option on Haaland is Nunez tbh.”
