BENFICA striker Darwin Nunez has left his agent ahead of a potential summer move and will reportedly sign with a new representative close to Jorge Mendes.
The forward has 28 goals this season and is attracting interest from a host of top clubs, including Manchester United and Arsenal.
Nunez’s form saw Premier League outfit West Ham lodge a late bid for him in the January transfer window.
But a move worth around £45million failed to materialise.
Ahead of this summer and a potential move away from Benfica, Nunez has confirmed he as left agent Edgardo Lasalvia.
The 22-year-old said on Twitter: “I want to clarify that I will not renew my contract with my representative Edgardo Lasalvia.
“I also want to clarify that neither my family nor I have received any threats and we are fine.”
And according to Fabrizio RomanoNunez will reportedly sign with a new representative close to super agent Jorge Mendes.
The news comes as a boost to circling clubs Man Utd and Arsenal, who are both looking to bolster their frontlines.
It is thought that the striker will now cost upwards of £60m.
