"Darwin? Manchester United could write a book on how not to make transfers"

Criticism of former Liverpool player Robbie Fowler as the Red Devils enter the race for Darwin Nunes

As Darwin Nunes’ deal with Liverpool draws to a close, former Liverpool star Robbie Fowler has criticized the way rivals Manchester United have entered the race for the Uruguayan striker.

“The signing of Darwin Nunez is almost complete, what I admire is the presence of Manchester United in the negotiations. I can guarantee that Anfield were upset by this as it could raise not only the price but also the wages required. [Apesar disso] Let’s be clear, no self-respecting agent would use this to ask for a bigger contract.”

The former England international has accused the Red Devils of only getting into an argument over Darwin to prevent the Benfica striker from strengthening Liverpool, similar to what he believes has happened to Cristiano Ronaldo and Alexis in the past Sanchez.

“I don’t want to be cruel, but Manchester United could write a free book on how not to make transfers in their final seasons. Signing players just because you don’t want them to go to your opponent? Done, more than once “Cristiano Ronaldo did his job well enough, but sign him only because he could go to City? It’s a declared disaster. Same with Alexis Sanchez, by the way, not the same, ten times worse “, he noted.

“This business [de Alexis Sánchez] explains everything that is wrong at Old Trafford. How much is it? about 500 thousand [libras] weekly in salary, I saw somewhere that it cost them about 20 million [de libras] for a goal! Fowler added.

Robbie Fowler even goes so far as to claim that this approach to the market is responsible for the “destruction” of Manchester United’s financial structure.

“The worst part is that it didn’t just disrupt United’s pay structure, it destroyed it. That’s how the goalkeeper [David De Gea] ends up earning £400,000 a week and getting a midfielder like Paul. [Pogba]who didn’t even make the team half the time won even more,” he concluded.
