Manchester United are regarded as the front-runners to sign Benfica striker Darwin Nunez when compared to Arsenal.
The Uruguayan has been in sensational form for Benfica this campaign, bagging 26 goals from just 33 appearances.
His performances have grabbed the attention of several elite clubs. United and Arsenal have been regularly linked with him.
The Red Devils have already made contact with the player’s representatives, but they still face competition from abroad.
Atletico Madrid have also been keeping an eye on the marksman. The La Liga giants could have the edge over United.
Nunez will demand Champions League football at his next club. United are currently not in a position to offer him that.
The Mancunian giants are presently four points adrift of the fourth spot in the Premier League occupied by Arsenal.
The Gunners have played a game less. Hence, United have a big battle in their hands to qualify for the Champions League.
