Liverpool’s new signing Darwin Nunez has revealed why he moved to Anfield amid interest from Manchester United.
Nunez completed his move to Liverpool on Tuesday from Benfica, becoming the club’s first summer signing. The Uruguay international Nunez makes the move from Benfica in a deal believed to be worth around £85million including add-ons.
Despite United being in need of a new forward to support Cristiano Ronaldo, who now finds himself as the club’s only number nine following Edinson Cavani’s departure, it became clear over recent weeks they were set to be beaten by their bitter rivals. Having completed his move to Anfield, Nunez lifted the lid on why he chose Liverpool.
“It’s a pleasure to be here in Liverpool and I’m very happy to be a part of this great club,” Nunez told Liverpool’s website.
“I’ve played against Liverpool and I’ve seen them in lots of games in the Champions League, and it’s my style of play.”
The 22-year-old scored 34 goals in 41 appearances across all competitions last season, alerting some of the Premier League’s big guns.
