Report: Darwin Nunez gives his agents directions as clubs line up better financial offers than Liverpool

Darwin Nunez will reject offers of bigger wages in order to sign with Liverpool, according to reports. The Uruguayan has his mind set.

This comes from Record. They claim that Darwin Nunez will reject offers of bigger wages in order to sign for Liverpool. The transfer isn’t about money, it seems, and the Uruguayan sees a brighter future at Anfield.

It comes in a report about Manchester United attempting to sign the player late on. They’re willing to match Liverpool’s offer to Benfica but can’t sway the player. Even money won’t do that, apparently.

Thus Liverpool firmly lead the race here as they close in on a club-record transfer. It will reportedly take £85m in total to get Benfica to commit to a sale – eclipsing what the Reds paid for Virgil van Dijk in 2018.

All that really needs sorting is how that payment is structured. Liverpool will want it in instalments and add-ons, while Benfica will want as much upfront as possible.

Assuming the two parties can sort that one out, Nunez will move to Anfield.

Darwin Nunez to reject bigger wages

It’s what you want to hear from any player joining the club, really. Nunez wants to play for Liverpool specifically and likes what the club can do for him.

It also means that Liverpool are entirely in the driving seat here. We’re not sure who could jump in with a better offer for Nunez at this point. Every other major club boasts a centre-forward who would get in his way or simply can’t give him a shot at the biggest trophies.

A club like United was relying on a financial package to sway him – but that won’t be enough. It’s a massive transfer fee, of course, but one we think Liverpool can justify.

The fact the player is so eager to play for them specifically only lends itself to that.
