Man City target Darwin Nunez's January price tag and other transfer rumours

Manchester City have reportedly been long-term admirers for Benfica forward Darwin Nunez, but they could encounter a stumbling block in their January negotiations.

Following the exit of Sergio Aguero in the summer, the Blues have been without a recognised striker and saw their efforts to sign Harry Kane fail.

The Brazilian has been on the radar for Pep Guardiola’s side for a number of months and his performances in Lisbon will have done his stock no problems after firing eight goals in 10 Liga Portugal matches.

According to the Portuguese news outlet Record, via Sport Witness, his agent has been holding meetings with clubs in Madrid and Milan, namely AC and Inter.

But City may be forced to wait to push for his signature – should they carry out their intentions – as Benfica are said to only be willing to allow their prized possession to leave if his €150m release clause is met.

The 22-year-old will have three years remaining on his deal in the Portugal capital by the end of the season, but City have experience with negotiating for Benfica players after prising Ruben Dias away.

Meanwhile, Barcelona are said to be offering several players in exchange for Ferran Torres.

The Spaniard is said to be interested in a move back to La Liga with Xavi’s side the most interested party.

But as they struggle to balance their books, they may need to use players as a makeweight in the negotiations for the Spanish talisman.

Mundo Deportivo report that Sergino Dest, Sergi Roberto, Clement Lenglet, Oscar Mingueza, Philippe Coutinho, Neto and Samuel Umtiti are among the players the Cules are willing to use as a bargaining chip to sign the 21-year-old.

Torres has struggled to find his way in Pep Guardiola’s regular first-team plans due to the wealth of talent at their disposal and it is said to be one of the reasons he is open to a move back to his native Spain.
