Media watchBenfica confirm €100m deal for Darwin Nunez’s transfer to Liverpool
Benfica have confirmed the terms of Darwin Nunez’s transfer to Liverpool, announcing that the striker will move for an initial €75m (£64.2m) and that the fee could reach €100m with add-ons.
Nunez is due to start his medical on Monday before signing a six-year contract. The terms of his move mean he could become Liverpool’s record signing, the fee eclipsing the £75m paid for Virgil van Dijk.
A statement from Benfica released in the early hours of Monday said the club had “reached an agreement with Liverpool FC for the sale of all rights to the player Darwin Nunez, for the amount of €75m” and that the “total amount of the sale could reach the amount of €100m”.
