Liverpool are making a massive mistake, according to Manchester United, with transfer lined up

Manchester United believe Liverpool are set to make a mistake by signing Darwin Nunez despite being heavily interested in taking him to Old Trafford.

A deal to take the Uruguayan to Anfield is all but complete and the Reds have agreed to pay €100m.

Yet, according to a report, Manchester United believe their rivals are making a mistake they all too familiar with.

ESPN report that United pulled out of the race to sign Nunez in fear of being drawn into an expensive bidding war.

My belief is that the Red Devils were simply beaten to his signature and they’ve briefed journalists that they weren’t going to pursue him as a way to save face.

However, the report goes on to say that Man Utd believe Liverpool are making a huge mistake by paying €100million for Nunez.

United have become infamous for their reckless spending and view the striker as a player that is unlikely to deliver on the huge sum required to bring him to England.

Nunez scored 34 goals this season, including 6 goals in 10 Champions League games.

With no disrespect to Benfica, he should be able to score even more with players like Trent Alexander, Luis Diaz and Mohamed Salah around him.

The quality he will now be surrounded with should enable him to score even more than he did this season.

Darwin could be a (r)evolutionary signing for the Reds and he must be expected to become one of the very best players in the world if Jurgen Klopp and FSG agreed to pay €100m to sign him.

Liverpool have made him their record signing ahead of Virgil van Dijk.

The only times the Merseysiders have broken the £60m barrier has been for Virgil and Alisson Becker as they believed the duo would prove transformative.

They weren’t wrong.
