Report: Liverpool reach full agreement to sign Darwin Nunez, length of contract offered now shared

Liverpool have now reached a full agreement for Darwin Nunez to join the club from Benfica.

That’s according to Portuguese outlet Record, who claim that Nunez is ‘about to be’ a Liverpool player.

The deal will reportedly be the second most expensive in Portuguese football history. This will amount to a fee of £68m with £17m in add-ons.

It’s claimed that Nunez will sign a five-year contract at Liverpool. Full details of the transfer will reportedly be wrapped up by the end of the week.

Five years of Darwin

Record’s claim of a five-year deal for the 22-year-old is also reported in The Guardian.

With the forward turning twenty-three in a couple of weeks time, this will tie him down for what will likely be his best years as a player.

If this is also the case for Darwin, it could be that Liverpool end up in a similar situation to the one they have with Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah right now.

That’s all for the future though. For now, it’s time to look forward to a hugely exciting transfer for the club.

It has been over four years since Liverpool committed to breaking their transfer record. That was to sign Virgil Van Dijk and we all know how that turned out.

Should the deal go through, there’ll be pressure on Nunez to deliver. But with a team packed full of superstars around him, hopefully he can deal with the scrutiny and become yet another success story for The Reds.
