Darwin Núñez has 34 goals scored and four assists in 40 games this season, figures which, combined with the excellent performances in the Champions League, have attracted the interest of several clubs from the main European leagues. One of the interested parties is Manchester United.
Diego Forlán, compatriot of the young player, in statements to the ‘podcast’ Break the lines, spoke of the possibility of Darwin going to Old Trafford, praising the Eagles striker: “He’s a very good player, a successful kid at Benfica and having a very positive season. Not just in the Portuguese league, but also in the Champions League, where he scored six goals and helped Benfica reach the quarter-finals,” he said.
The former Uruguay international, who played for Manchester United in his career, welcomes Darwin’s move to the Red Devils. “He’s a player with a lot of potential and who could fit into Manchester United. But obviously they should calm down with him, even if he’s gaining more and more experience.
Diego Forlán admitted that Old Trafford would be a great option for the Uruguayan striker to continue his career. “It’s a club that gives players time, that makes them feel comfortable and at home. It would be spectacular to see him at Manchester United.
