(Video) Reporter claims United will meet with Jorge Mendes in attempt to hijack Nunez transfer

Portuguese football expert Pedro Sepulveda claims that Manchester United could try to hijack Liverpool’s attempts to sign Darwin Nunez.

There has been lots of speculation over the past 24 hours about Nunez as Liverpool emerged as the frontrunners to sign the 22-year-old goalscorer.

The Uruguayan has already agreed terms with the Merseyside club, but it is understood that Liverpool have yet to table an offer for the player, meaning there is still a slim chance that Nunez could end up at Old Trafford this summer.

Writing for CaughtOffside, reliable journalist Fabrizio Romano said Liverpool were leading the race for Nunez, but United still had an interest in the player.

Now, it seems that United are planning to hold talks with Jorge Mendes, who recently became Nunez’s agent.

Sepulveda told Sky Sports: “Manchester United will have a meeting with Jorge Mendes, which is the new Darwin Nunez agent.”

Even if United can’t find an agreement over Nunez, we’ve no doubt that Mendes will have other clients to suggest as the Red Devils plan to improve a number of different areas in the transfer market.

One player of interest could be Henrique Araujo after sources informed Stretty News that he is a younger option on the club’s radar.

The 20-year-old Benfica striker is represented by Mendes but his first team experience looks pretty limited.

  1. I have never seen a club which is so slow in the transfer market like Manchester united,if we’re not careful, we’ll lose him to our arch rivals

  2. Man United have terrible transfer policy. Their too slow and they haven’t made a bid for anyone. This is disappointing. If they don’t become ruthless in transfers, they may lose out on other targets. I love Man united, but clearly there are still problems in the board room and ownership.

  3. if united had really agreed with ten hag on total control over transfer business,why don’t them get the deal done? because their terrible transfer tradition plays part in anti-glazer’s protest. so i urge for the urgency to get the deal over the line.
