Whether Kylian Mbappé remains at Paris Saint-Germain, it won’t stop the capital club from looking to get younger at forward and finding a player or two that can score goals.
Mauro Icardi has failed to replace Edinson Cavani since arriving in 2019. Over the last few weeks, PSG has been linked to SL Benfica striker Darwin Nuñez as a possible option to be the long-term replacement of his fellow countryman.
German media outlet Abendzeitung (via Paris Fans) reports that FC Bayern Munich deems the 22-year-old too expensive for them. Also, the Uruguay international is at the top of PSG’s transfer target list, adding that club president Nasser Al-Khelaifi has made him a priority.
Various information suggests that Benfica hopes to garner a transfer fee between €80-million and €100-million for Nuñez. As a result, some clubs could want the player, but like Bayern Munich, they might see the price as too high.
One of the other clubs that’s making a big push for Nuñez is Manchester United, as they look for a long-term striker to begin the Erik ten Hag era at Old Trafford.
This season, Nuñez has made 40 appearances, scoring 34 goals and recording four assists for the Portuguese giants.
