Bayern Munich is said to be willing to pay €80m for the transfer target of Manchester United and Arsenal Darwin Nunez.
Nunez has been linked to a host of clubs due to Benfica’s impressive performance, and 90 minutes List of Manchester United and Arsenal clubs interested in getting his signature.
Now, Sport1 (via Fichajes) reported that Bayern Munich will enter the race for Nunez, ready to pay around €80 million for the 22-year-old.
Gerard Romero has claimed that Barcelona are willing to buy Robert Lewandowski for €25m (via Barca Universal), so they could look to Nunez as a potential alternative.
Lewandowski is in his 30s now, so selling the Poland striker and reinvesting in a young talent like Nunez could be a smart move for Bayern Munich. No movement is likely for Nunez unless they sell their star forward, who is unlikely to want to join a team he doesn’t start every week.
Nunez has scored 24 goals in several league matches this season, and has also been impressive in the Champions League.
The 22-year-old has scored six goals in Europe and has naturally attracted the interest of some of the continent’s biggest clubs.
