Man Utd told to up bid after first 'structured' offer for Darwin Nunez rejected by Benfica

Manchester United must go higher for Benfica striker Darwin Nunez after an opening offer was rejected.

Correio de Manha says United have had an £81million bid for Nunez rebuffed.

It's claimed the Portuguese giants have told the Red Devils to offer more for the Uruguay superstar, 22.

Benfica turned down a package of £64m up front plus £17m bonuses.

United's Brazil midfielder Andreas Pereira, 26, who is currently on loan with home country club Flamengo, was said to have been part of the offer.
