Agent reveals 'top-level teams' contacting Man Utd, Man City target Darwin Nunez

The agent of Benfica striker Darwin Nunez insists he is "ready to play in any team on the globe".

Reports linking Nunez to Manchester United and Manchester City have intensified after Nunez netted twice in the Champions League against Barcelona.

And now the player's agent, Edgardo Lasalvia, has spoken publicly about the Uruguayan's plans for a move in the future.

Lasalvia told FC Inter News: "Darwin is ready to play in any team on the globe.

"Various top-level teams have contacted us, but for the moment the head is on continuing and growing with Benfica and with the Uruguayan national team: this is how important things will come."

When asked about Nuñez's similarity with his national teammate Edinson Cavani, he added: "They have a lot of things in common. We're convinced that Darwin is destined for great things.

"The important thing is that he is happy now and wants to repay the trust of Benfica and the affection of the people by winning a title. We'll discuss the transfer possibilities with the club executives if necessary, as it should be.

"For the moment we're calm and happy to see him on the pitch."
