Portuguese newspaper Record today features a front page story about the impact that the Champions League final should have on the future of Benfica star Darwin Nunez.
The reason for that is that Liverpool and Real Madrid are two of the main contenders for the signing, having the player ‘on their radar’, and the result of the match in Paris could dictate what will happen to the 22-year-old.
Speaking of the Reds, Record points out Jürgen Klopp was able to see Darwin’s talent ‘in situ’, since the striker scored three goals against the Liverpool in the Champions League’s quarter-finals.
It’s said the manager was ‘very impressed’ with what he saw from the striker, and since both Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah are surrounded by transfer rumours, the Uruguayan could arrive to get a spot in their attack.
Record writes that Benfica demand €100m to let Darwin go, and both Liverpool and Real Madrid are already aware of his summer price.
Claiming the striker’s move will be sorted ‘after tomorrow’s final’, the newspaper is sounding quite confident about the impact this game will have on the clubs’ decision to go after him.
