Nunez links to FC Barcelona, ​​but the transfer is difficult to complete

One of the priorities of Xavi and the FC Barcelona sports department for the upcoming season is to strengthen the attacking line.

The coach’s wish list included Darwin Nunez, the current Liverpool striker who was already on the radar of the Pride of Catalonia before Liverpool shelled out €75 million for him from Benfica.

However, FC Barcelona’s interest in Darwin Nunez has intensified following the Uruguayan striker’s recent visit to his compatriot Ronald Araujo in Barcelona.

This meeting coincided with a crisis in the player’s relationship with Liverpool. Nunez even decided to remove all photos of a Reds jersey from his social media, further fueling speculation.

As Spanish Radio Fenix’s Nicolas Saavedra reported in the “Mss que Pelotas” podcast, Nunez’s agent, Jorge Mendes, is very interested in changing his client’s club. – Mendes wants him to leave Liverpool. Darwin is a player he values ​​very much and has high ambitions for him, he admitted. Barcelona is one of these ambitions.

Saavedra added that Liverpool has set a price of €85 million for the Uruguayan striker. However, Nunez himself is not currently focused on leaving the club urgently. His main priority in the near future is the Copa America.

Barcelona would have to sacrifice Lewandowski

This transaction poses significant financial challenges. Barcelona must adhere to financial fair play and the 1:1 rule, which means the club would have to sell another player to sign Nunez.

There is a possibility that the team will be forced to transfer Robert Lewandowski to enable the arrival of the Uruguayan.

Nunez’s transfer to the Pride of Catalonia could significantly change the team’s offensive options, but it all depends on the financial results and the club’s management strategy, which will determine the feasibility of implementing this ambitious plan.
