Benfica forward Darwin Nunez has been told that Liverpool will be a “better destination” for him than their rivals Manchester United.

The striker has been heavily linked with a move to the Premier League in recent months.

The likes of Arsenal, Newcastle United and Man Utd are all understood to have shown an interest in him.

Liverpool need Darwin Nunez because we need Liverpool to challenge Man City

The 22-year-old netted 34 goals in 41 appearances for Benfica during the 2021/22 campaign.

Liverpool have now emerged as the frontrunners to sign Nunez. It was revealed on Thursday that the player has ‘agreed personal terms’ with the Reds. 

Nunez will likely be Sadio Mane’s replacement. Bayern Munich are desperate to sign him and Liverpool value him at £42.5m.

Gary Pallister won the Premier League four times at Man Utd. He has conceded that Liverpool is a “better destination” for players than the Red Devils:

“Man United are one of the two top biggest clubs in the world, if you get a chance to sign for Manchester United, you’d snap their hands off, usually,” Pallister told Lord Pin (via Manchester Evening News).

“Obviously players are going to look at United and the troubles they’ve had, a new manager going in, where they finished last year, not playing Champions League football, they have got European football which can be a bonus but it’s not the top tier of European football.

“I think if you’re in a hurry, you’re going to sign for Liverpool at the minute. Liverpool have got Champions League football, they’re competing for the Premier League year in and year out, and they’re in a really good place.

“The thing that United have in their favour is, you’d be joining one of the biggest clubs in the world without a shadow of a doubt. You could be part of that rollercoaster ride they’re hopefully going to be on to try and get back to the top of the table.

“You don’t dismiss Man United but at this moment in time, you have to say Liverpool would possibly seem like a better destination for most players because they are playing Champions League and they are competitive, that’s something that Manchester United are not at the moment.”
