Liverpool face rivals Manchester United in a direct battle for the signing of Darwin Nunez from Benfica. A late move signaled by Erik Ten Haag has given the Uruguayan a dilemma, does he choose the Reds or take a chance with the Red Devils.
Darwin Nunez has a huge decision to make, so LFCTR is here to break it down in case he needs a little helping hand. We’ll compare Liverpool and Manchester United to see which club is a better fit for the Benfica star.
Jurgen Klopp, alongside Pep Guardiola, is the best in the world. The German took over a Liverpool side in dismay and deemed them the most feared team in world football.
Without a blank checkbook, the Reds bought potential rather than the finished article. However, Jurgen Norbet Klopp and his coaching staff have made this group of players one of the best in the league. Mohamed Salah, a player Chelsea let go of, is now considered the best in the world by many.
Now onto Erik Ten Hag. A manager who has the potential to become one of the best, however, is yet to prove himself. His spell at Ajax was impressive, taking them to the Champions League semi-finals in 2019 and winning the league three times.
Although the Manchester United manager plays a good style of football, he has yet to show if he can recreate that in the toughest league in the world. However, the clear development of a player like Sebastian Haller shows that Ten Hag can get the most out of players.
Winner: Liverpool – although I think United have the right man, it’s not Jurgen Klopp. Darwin Nunez can’t ask for a better manager than the Reds boss and has every chance of becoming a world champion like the others.
Every fanbase will say they are the best in the world, but when Liverpool fans say so, it’s hard to argue against it. If you ever need proof, just watch last week’s parade after a league and Champions League disappointment. It was special.
Darwin Nunez experienced exactly what he will hear when he steps out at Anfield. Former players always pick Liverpool as their favorite away game because of the atmosphere, but it’s much better to be in the home team.

Traveling from London every week can affect the energy of Manchester United fans and if it’s not that, that’s the football they’ve endured for the past ten years. Give them credit at the deadline, when Cristiano Ronaldo scores, they confuse all the women named Sue in the Lancashire area.
Old Trafford is an amazing stadium to watch and could shoot when the season starts again. However, when it turns sour after the first four games, as a player you will know.
Winner: Liverpool – No contest.
Liverpool have just come off a genuine quadruple run and a domestic cup double, they have six players in the PFA Team of the Year and they are once again among the favorites for every competition next season.
Then there is Manchester United. A club run like a circus. From allowing the power of players to dominate to allocating businessmen to make football decisions, the Glazers should be enough to deter anyone from joining the club.
The players are getting worse, the managers are disrespecting and the fans are getting used to it. Your choice Darwin.
Winner: Liverpool – If Darwin Nunez wants to join a club and manager that can make him one of the best in the world, while competing and winning trophies on a regular basis, there is only one answer. If he only wants to line his pockets but suffer miserably and soon lose all his abilities, that is his mistake.
I believe Darwin Nunez will make the right choice and that choice is Liverpool.
