Manchester United have been told the asking price for their top target, Darwin Nunez, has gone up. Benfica have informed the Red Devils that they are now seeking €100m instead of the €60m quoted earlier in the year.
Records confirm that the updated price tag could cause United to fail. Erik ten Hag wants a striker, but the Red Devils are not willing to spend a large part of their transfer budget on the Uruguayan with midfield signings a priority.
The incoming manager could be assigned a £150 million budget. He wants to sign a replacement for Edinson Cavani, who is on track to leave the club this summer when his contract expires.
Nunez is considered the perfect player for Ten Hag’s system and he has been in top form this season. The striker has scored 34 goals in 41 games and has attracted the interest of several clubs across Europe.
