It’s believed that Eric Ten Hag has placed Nunez at the top of his list and United are ready to go in hard for his signature.
Chelsea remain keen to continue strengthening their squad with the new administration set to kick off in days time.
Nunez has seen the end of the season with Benfica as they are finishing third and a UEFA Champions League qualification match awaits but likely he would be out before this game.
According to the player’s advisor, Nunez wants Champions League football should he be leaving Portugal.
Nunez prefers as side that would be in the Champions League next season which automatically writes off Man United from his preference list.
Chelsea are advancing should things remain unchanged as Nunez has been advised to head for England as he would be following the footsteps of several stars, including Bruno Fernandes who just joined Man United.
No bid has been submitted for Nunez as things are still gradually unwrapping but the club already expects some offers to come in soon.
