Manchester United have made an offer worth €105m (£90m) for Benfica striker Darwin Nunez, according to Correio da Manha.
The Portuguese publication claims that the Red Devils are prepared to pay €75m (£64m) up front, with another €30m (£25.6m) coming in the form of “easy to achieve” performance-related bonuses.
Benfica are still said to be mulling over the bid from United with the Portuguese club having not given a “definitive answer” on whether they will accept the proposal.
Correio da Manha are not one of the most reliable newspapers in Portugal so supporters should bear this in mind when considering the accuracy of the report.
Respected journalists have confirmed that United are interested in Nunez, but the Uruguayan international has also been linked with other Premier League teams, including the likes of Chelsea, Arsenal, Liverpool, Newcastle and West Ham.
If United’s offer does turn out to be genuine, though, it is certainly a statement of intent as the club look to rebuild the squad this summer.
