Darwin Nuñez is one of the big names of this market of signings. The Uruguayan has turned into the new player of the Liverpool after a record transfer that has turned him into the most expensive signing of the history of the group of Merseyside. The Benfica received 75 million euros (more 25 'kilos' variable) for 'give off' of one of the big 'jewels' of the European football.

The Uruguayan attacker comes of a season of 'gold' with the Portuguese group, in which it achieved to add 34 goals and four assistances in 41 parties contested in the 2021-2022. It has added to a new chapter of his sportive career after the insistence of Jürgen Klopp that 'litigated' so that the leaders of the Liverpool him 'pleased' with the signing to complete a forward of luxury in which they also will be Mohamed Salah and Luis Díaz.

The Liverpool was not the only team that was interested in doing with his services this summer. His good season in the stadium Gives Luz caused that all the 'big' of Europe touched the doors of the Benfica to try his traspaso, included a FC Barcelona that saw him like an alternative for his forward, but his high price of traspaso was inalcanzable for the Barcelona.

It has been a millionaire operation for the Liverpool and the Barça, that drags a strong economic crisis, could not face up him. The club, in fact, still is not in conditions to do with the traspaso of Robert Lewandowski if the Bayern of Munich decides finally sell him this summer, waiting for that activate the 'crowbars' (the sale of 49,9% of BLM or a percentage of the television rights of the club by the next 25 years) in the Assembly of Partners of this Thursday 16 June.

Interest from does time...

The reality is that the Barça had not interested only this summer in the international with Uruguay. In fact, in a recent talk of Luis Suárez in 'Jijantes', the exdelantero Barcelona confessed that it had recommended to the directive the signing of his compatriot: "Look it, take care it, is very good, see him interesting things", said them in 2019, when it was in the rows of the Almería.

"They could have paid 15-20 millions so that it was my substitute and now will arrive to the 80, 90 or 100 millions by him", added Suárez in this opportunity, sentencing that "am fifteen years old of experience and something of forwards know, but said me that it was very young and that was in the Almería".
