'Big' Man United claim issued by pundit after journalist's Darwin Nunez reveal

Liverpool are a “bigger draw” than Man United and Erik ten Hag needs to be “realistic” with his targets, according to Paul Robinson.

The former Spurs and England number one, speaking exclusively to Football Insider, said the Red Devils have “a massive rebuild” ahead of them.

On Tuesday (14 June), Liverpool announced the signing of Darwin Nunez from Benfica on a six-year deal worth a reported £140,000-a-week.

According to Portuguese journalist Pedro Sepulveda, as quoted by the Express (14 June), Man United made a “bigger” offer for the Uruguay striker.

However, it is said that Nunez favoured a move to Anfield because of Jurgen Klopp’s project and Champions League football.

When asked by Football Insider if Liverpool were now a far more attractive proposition than United, Campbell said: “Man United are not the bigger draw anymore.

“They have to be realistic.

“The big thing for footballers at that level is the Champions League. Players want to be competing at the top. Man United can’t offer that at the moment and that’s a problem.

“They are in transition. There is a massive rebuild facing Erik ten Hag. He has a job on to convince players to come and be a part of what he is building.

“If you go to Liverpool you are going to a club that is ready to win major trophies. United are a way off at the moment.”
