Liverpool 'face £4m payment if Darwin Nunez plays vs Rangers TONIGHT as first transfer clause triggered' | The Sun

LIVERPOOL will reportedly have to fork out £4million to Benfica if Darwin Nunez plays against Rangers on Wednesday night.

The Reds paid a club record fee worth £85m for the Uruguayan, 23, in the summer transfer window.

Portuguese newspaper A Bola report that only £65 was paid upfront, with the rest in bonuses.

The first of which is heading into Benfica's bank account shortly, as the £4m clause will be triggered after ten appearances.

Nunez has played nine games so far, with Jurgen Klopp's team facing a trip to Ibrox in the Champions League group stage.

Following this landmark being met, the Liga Portugal side will get another £8.5m when he reaches 60 appearances.
