Darwin Núñez has a condition

Darwin Núñez’s scoring eruption at Benfica makes him one of the great claims of the next summer transfer market. The 22-year-old has scored 34 goals this season and has provided four assists in 41 games (2,821 minutes). A performance that, together with his potential and youth, has not only made several European teams show interest in the striker, but also the Uruguayan sets a requirement: play in the Champions League, according to RMC Sports.

This request from the footballer distances him from Manchester United and Newcastle, although he still has a long list of suitors: Arsenal (on the last day their presence in the European competition will be decided), Liverpool, Manchester City, Atlético de Madrid, Barcelona or Bayern Munich. But PSG, as AS pointed out, is the club that seems best positioned to sign the still Benfica player.
