Liverpool better spent £65m for Nunez than City on Haaland

So far, the fight for the best transfer has been won by Liverpool who took home the Community Shield.

Liverpool and Manchester City spent almost the same amount of money (£65 million) on their two star signings for the new season. On the one hand, Darwin Nunez arrived from Benfica, while Erling Haaland arrives from Borussia Dortmund, with all the success of his seasons in Germany behind him.

But so far, Nunez has been worth every pound spent on him, while Haaland has not proved his worth in the pre-season transfer market. It all comes down to the Community Shield match between the two sides last Saturday night at Leicester's King Power Stadium.

Liverpool won it 3-1, with a goal from Nunez and another from Salah that the Uruguayan himself managed to provoke after a header inside the box. A complete and brilliant game for the Benfica arrival. While Haaland had at least three clear chances in front of the goalkeeper, the last one being the clearest and most important, which he failed to capitalise on for Manchester City.

Nunez vs. Haaland

Although it is only the start for both players in their teams, and we cannot get ahead of ourselves as to what will happen in the campaign, Liverpool have assembled a complete team to compete for the Premier League and Champions League against anyone they put in front of them. Perhaps we will see a looser Haaland in the season that starts next weekend, but so far he has not proven to be that striker who will excel with City.

Nunez had a shaky start, but little by little he has been adapting to the game Jurgen Klopp is looking for, despite being a change in the Community Shield game, the Uruguayan showed that he can change the course of a game with his play and adapt to what the German manager is looking for, who has plenty of options up front with Luis Diaz, Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino, Diogo Jota and Fabio Carvalho.
