According to reports, Manchester United are favourites to sign a £125million rated star striker this summer.

Media outlet Record via Teamtalk claim Manchester United are in pole position to sign Benfica’s star striker Darwin Nunez.

Nunez has a release clause if £125million in his contract and Benfica have reportedly rejected offers close to £50million for the striker in the past.

Manchester United scouts have watched the striker several times as the club prepares to sign the 22 year old striker this summer.

Meanwhile, Manchester United reportedly want Napoli striker Victor Osimhen to replace Cristiano Ronaldo at the club next summer but Napoli want at least £84m for the youngster.
