Liverpool sign Darwin Nunez for 75m plus 25m in variables

Benfica have released an official announcement to confirm that Darwin Nunez will join Liverpool. The Primeira Liga club communicated the transfer early on Monday to the Portuguese Securities Market Commission (CMVM).

Given that Benfica are listed on a stock exchange, they are obliged to communicate the figures of the transfer. Therefore, we know that Liverpool will pay 75 million euros plus a possible further 25m euros in variables to acquire Nunez's services.

"The agreement foresees the payment of a variable remuneration, so the overall amount of the sale could reach the sum of 100 million euros," reads Benfica's statement.

According to the Portuguese press, the variables set out in the contract will be relatively simple to fulfil. Should he play 10 games, the Reds will pay another 5m euros. In the event he reaches 60 games, Liverpool will pay a further 10m euros. Benfica will receive the remaining 10m euros should certain individual and collective goals be achieved.

The agreement between the two clubs has been finalised and now it remains to be seen when Nunez put pen to paper on his six-year deal.

Darwin Nunez: Liverpool's record signing

Nunez will join Mohamed Salah, Luis Diaz, Diogo Jota and Roberto Firmino in Liverpool's attack, while Sadio Mane is close to joining Bayern Munich.

The Uruguayan striker becomes the most expensive signing in Liverpool's history, ahead of Virgil dan Dijk, whose move from Southampton cost the Reds around 85m euros.

Last season, Nunez scored 34 goals in 41 games across all competitions for Benfica, who paid 24m to sign him from Almeria in the summer of 2020.

The Spanish club signed Nunez in exchange for 13m euros from Penarol and are due 20 percent of any profit Benfica make on the deal, which means that they will receive around 20m euros. The Andalusians have secured promotion to LaLiga Santander ahead of next season.
