This is Nunez’s 32nd goal this season in all competitions and it is clear that this 22-year-old has a very bright future ahead of him.
This sort of finishing touch explains why he has an impressive record, and explains interest from the likes of Arsenal and Manchester United, as mentioned by Fabrizio Romano in the tweet below…
Darwin Nunez will leave Benfica in the summer, at a cost of around 80 million euros. His new agent will now meet with several top clubs to explore opportunities. ?? # conversions

Romano claims Nunez will leave Benfica this summer, and will certainly be a dreamy replacement for Arsenal’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who is facing a crisis up front because Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah exited their contracts this summer.
In the meantime, it would be best for Manchester United to bring in Nunez as a long-term replacement for aging attacking duo Cristiano Ronaldo and Edinson Cavani, and as an upgrade for struggling strikers Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial.
