Darwin Núñez is one of the most exciting young attackers in world football at the moment. This season he has been explosive at the Center Forward position with 26 goals and 4 assists in 27 appearances in Primeira Liga and also 6 goals in 10 Champions League appearances.
The Uruguayan international likes to showcase his versatility in the final third. In Primeira Liga, he is constantly bullying the opposing defenders with sublime power and pace, turning them towards their own goal with his bursts on and off the ball.
Darwin Núñez is the most valuable player outside of Europe's top 5 leagues according to CIES Football Observatory with a value of €70.7 Million. Former Benfica manager Jorge Jesus believes the club will get more than five times the €24 million they spend on him, breaking current sale record of €127 Million that they received on João Félix. The only thing that is certain, is that the player will play for another club next season.
Many journalists and outlets have linked the 22 year old with a move to Manchester United this summer, with the fee being thrown around at €80 Million. According to well known italian journalist ,Gianluca Di Marzio, "Darwin Núñez will play in the Premier League".
