AC Milan and Inter face competition in their pursuit of Benfica striker Darwin Nunez, according to a report from England.
Portuguese newspaper Record (via MilanLive) reported this morning that the Rossoneri were left impressed by Nunez having watched him on Wednesday as he has ended up in Milan’s crosshairs as a possible future reinforcement in attack. The Lisbon club now want around €40m, with Inter also keen.
However, it is not just the two Milanese clubs that want Nunez. As reported by the Daily Star (via MilanNews), the former Almeria star has ended up in Manchester United’s crosshairs too, with some club scouts event having gone to see him live in the Champions League match against Barcelona.
The 22-year-old – who can play either as a striker or as a left winger – has already scored 6 goals in 7 games this season and he netted twice against Barca, so any scouts who attended will no doubt have been very impressed.
