Lots of Newcastle United fans have been blown away by a fresh transfer claim to emerge on Twitter linking them with the Benfica forward Darwin Nunez.
According to journalist Mark Douglas, the Magpies have been ‘quoted in excess of £50m’ if they wish to further their interest in the Uruguayan.
Would Nunez save NUFC from relegation?
The report claims the 22-year-old has also attracted the interest of Atletico Madrid and Manchester City despite the £100m release clause in his contract.
What did these Newcastle fans have to say?
“Darwin Nunez is a beast. Been watching a lot of Primera Liga and every time I see him play, he reminds of a Forlan/Drogba type, skill and can finish from anywhere”
However, it seems these fans feel the impressive form Nunez has shown this season with 13 goals in as many league games could make the 22-year-old the forward they need to save them from falling into the Championship.
