The summer transfer market is getting busy day by day. Some new names have already joined new clubs. Meanwhile, some legendary players are leaving the clubs.
Darwin Nunez joins Liverpool.
Liverpool superstar Sadio Mane has decided to leave the club as he rejected to renew his contract. So, Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has been looking for a replacement for Sadio Mane. Finally, he found a player who might fill up Mane’s place. He is none other than Darwin Nunez.
The Benfica has attracted many top clubs in Europe. His scoring ability attracted their attention. Last season, Darwin Nunez scored 26 goals and got four assists in the Primera Liga for Benfica. However, Real Madrid and Manchester United were also interested in signing him. But Liverpool won the race to get Darwin Nunez. The English club agreed to pay around £64m million with an additional £21m million in add-ons.
Moreover, Klopp believes that Nunez will be a trump card for them in the upcoming season. As Mane left the club, Nunez can be seen in the starting XI from the beginning of the new season. Jurgen Klopp can deploy him with Salah and Luis Diaz. In addition, the boss has more options, such as Diego Jota and Roberto Firmino.

I walk out of here with my head held high. My family is very proud of me. I feel very fortunate, everything I have had in my life has been with work, but I have been lucky with the people I have had by my side. Thank you very much to you all. This is not a goodbye; I do not feel that I am leaving Real Madrid. The club’s future is secure with promising young talent, and in that I include my son, who is playing well in the academy. I arrived as a child, and I leave as a man.
