LA BALLE – “The club that has been the most attentive is the Atl. Madrid” (Benfica)

Edgardo Lasalvia, Darwin Núñez’s coach, admits the Uruguayan international could leave at the end of the season and that Atletico Madrid, led by Diego Simeone and João Félix, have a strong interest in the Benfica player.

“The club that has been the most attentive and has told us the most about Darwin is Atlético de Madrid and I will soon be traveling to Europe to meet them and with Benfica. I think Benfica will be open to the idea of ​​making a nice sale, but only at the end of the season, or so they told us. But, be careful, the head of Darwin, at the moment, is 100% at Benfica”, he explained, stressing that the striker “deserves to make the leap to a stronger league” and that “he had a good time”.

The agent also admits ‘exploratory contacts’ from Barcelona and also from a club in Germany and another in England, but ‘not as firm’ as Atl. Madrid.
