Manchester United have been told what it will take to bring Benfica to the negotiating table for the transfer of Darwin Nunez.

The Benfica striker is one of the targets for new Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag after scoring 34 goals in all competitions for Benfica this season.

According to transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, Manchester United will need to table at least £64million in order to open negotiations with Benfica for Nunez.

Speaking on the Wondergoal Podcast, the Italian said: “It will depend on the price because, for example, in January on deadline day, West Ham made a proposal of €45m (£39m) and it was turned down because Benfica wanted €55m (£47m).

“Now I think with €55m, you are absolutely not buying him. So, what is needed is around €75-80m (£64m-£68m) million for Darwin Nunez, to open negotiations with Benfica.

“He now has a new agent that is really close to Jorge Mendes so it’s gonna change the future of the player.

“So, everything is absolutely open but I’m sure Darwin will be ready to leave Benfica in the summer and make a big move in the summer.”
