Darwin Núñez has sign with Liverpool, a club that payed a figure of 75 million euros with variables that would make it reach 100 million euros, according to journalist Fabrizio Romano. The Uruguayan will become the new attack card for Jürgen Klopp's team, which wins the fight against other great Europeans for his signing.

For several months the name of Darwin Núñez was on the agenda of the European teams. In Spain he was linked with Barcelona and Atlético de Madrid; PSG and Bayern Munich also followed him and even in England he had other suitors besides Liverpool, such as Manchester United.
Precisely, Fabrizio Romano had reported the interest of the Old Trafford team for the Uruguayan striker, but the player himself had chosen to play at Anfield. In turn, there would be another reason why Manchester United would have refused to sign Darwin and this is directly related to the economic aspect.
Manchester did not want to pay that much
Manchester United withdrew from the race for the signing of Darwin Núñez because they considered his sale price too high. Liverpool spends almost 100 million euros on his arrival, in what would be the most expensive purchase in its history and the highest also for a Uruguayan player. Thus, the 'Red Devils' decided to withdraw and not compete in a bidding war with one of their classic rivals.
