Last summer, Liverpool bought Darwin Nunez’s contract from Benfica for an incredible 100 million euros.

These days certain messages appeared on the “WhatsApp” network, in which the surprise of the management of Benfica, about the offer of Liverpool, was seen.

The president of that club, Rui Costa, believed that they would receive an offer of 45 million euros for him, but when Liverpool offered 80, they decided to pull out and ask for 100.

Liverpool accepted it and brought Nunez into their ranks, and days later, Costa revealed that they had in fact received a premium.

“When we found out about Liverpool’s interest, we first thought that it would be up to a 45 million euro offer. He had a good season and we expected offers. Two days later, we were shocked when a fax arrived from Liverpool saying they were offering €80 million plus a bonus. We all burst out laughing and I told the assistant to answer Liverpool. I asked him to raise the number, and the very next day that offer of 100 million came and we accepted with pleasure,” reveals Rui Costa.
