Clarification on reports of Newcastle's massive bid for Benfica standout Darwin Nunez

A fresh insight into the interest of Premier League outfit Newcastle United in the signature of Benfica star Darwin Nunez has been provided on Saturday.
For those not aware, reports pointing towards a whopping lb50 million bid being tabled by the newly-minted Magpies for Nunez were forthcoming earlier this week.
This came amid suggestions of the hierarchy at St. James’ Park attempting to get a jump on the widespread competition for the Uruguayan ahead of the summer window swinging open once more.
Recent weeks alone have seen the likes of Arsenal, Liverpool and Barcelona all credited with an interest in Nunez’s services.

Rumours of Newcastle making their move, however, appear to have jumped the gun.
As per journalist Ryan Taylor of the Daily Express, though the Geordie outfit placed Nunez firmly ‘on their shortlist’ ahead of the summer, a proposal for his services is yet to materialise:
No truth in reports that Newcastle have offered Benfica lb50m for Darwin N’u~nez. Uruguayan is on their shortlist, however, but Magpies’ summer transfer budget will be dictated by FFP & player sales. Eddie Howe said on Friday: “We will have to be very smart with what we do.” #NUFC

Back on the scoresheet
The latest word on Newcastle’s interest in Nunez of course comes with the gifted attacker in the midst of a scintillating spell in front of goal.
After bagging a hat-trick in a league meeting with Belenenses last weekend, the 22-year-old followed up by showcasing his talents on the grandest stage once more, finding the net amid a fine all-round performance at Anfield:

His latest strike took Nunez’s tally to seven goals in his last five appearances across all competitions, for a head-turning total of 30 goals and three assists across the season to date.
