Man Utd battle Chelsea, Arsenal for Benfica ace Darwin Nunez

Manchester United chiefs are pushing Benfica to strike terms for Darwin Nunez.

Record says United are refusing to give up on Nunez, who has put himself on the map with his dazzling displays in Europe's top competition.

Nunez has scored 34 goals across all competitions this season with six of those coming in the Champions League.

Five of his six goals in Europe impressively came against Barcelona, Bayern Munich and Liverpool.

However, United would face stiff competition from a number of top clubs for Nunez's signature.

Fellow Premier League clubs Arsenal and newly mega-rich Newcastle have been linked with a move for the £60million man.

West Ham tried to sign Nunez in the January transfer window but fell short of Benfica's valuation.

And Chelsea, who have a striker crisis with Romelu Lukaku and Timo Werner out of form, are also keeping tabs on Nunez.
