Darwin Nuñez will leave Benfica's ranks during the next summer market. The striker has drawn the attention of the big clubs, including Barça, but the outlay for the player will have to be important
The next transfer window seems like one of the most entertaining in recent years. Many of the best players on the continent want to try new 'airs', and the big clubs in the world are on the 'lookout' to reinforce their squads with these. Some of them will be able to get away with the freedom card, but the others will have to invest a good amount of money to get them into their ranks.
In this scenario, FC Barcelona is presented as one of the great protagonists of the market. The Barça team has one of the most ambitious sports projects in Europe, headed by Xavi and executed by several of the young promises of Spanish football. However, they want to put the 'jewel' in the 'crown' with a top-level figure and the favorite from the Camp Nou offices is Erling Haaland.
Despite the great interest of those led by Hernández in the Norwegian, the operation is very complicated at an economic level for the Catalans. For that reason, from the Blaugrana offices they study other alternatives, Lewandowski being the first on the list in case the '9' from Dortmund cannot arrive. However, another name appears on the Catalan agenda, and it is none other than Benfica's striker, Darwin Nuñez.
The Uruguayan is 'going out' with the 'eagles' this season, where he has scored 31 goals in 36 games. Although he is experiencing a great moment at the Estádio da Luz, the 'charrúa' striker will leave the team in the summer and many teams have already 'knocked' on his door, Barça being one of them. However. It will not be a cheap operation, since the Lisbon team has valued the player at 80 million euros. Therefore, the Barcelona fans would have to make an important investment if they want to get hold of the former Almería player.
In England they want him
Nuñez has aroused the interest of many clubs in the Premier League. West Ham United already tried to sign him during the winter market, but Benfica was not in the mood to let him out and rejected all their offers. Same situation as Arsenal, who wanted to take the striker to the Emirates Stadium, but their attempts were unsuccessful. Now, it is Manchester United who are studying the incorporation of the Uruguayan international to make up for the loss of his compatriot, Edinson Cavani, who will leave Old Trafford in July. What is clear is that Barça will have a lot of competition in the 'race'.
