£40M Bidding War: Man United and Liverpool Target Forest’s Murillo



Man United and Liverpool might compete to buy Nottingham Forest star Murillo this summer, sources told Newsmen.

An insider says Forest values the Brazilian defender at £40 million and hopes for a bidding war with many clubs interested.

Forest needs to sell several key players this summer to meet the Premier League’s Profit and Sustainability Rules.

Murillo could leave City Ground with interest from Manchester United, Liverpool, and European clubs.

The 21-year-old joined Forest for £15 million last summer and had a great debut season with 32 league appearances in 2023-24 under Nuno Espirito Santo.

Meanwhile, football analyst Pete O’Rourke said: “I think Forest will want £40million-plus for Murillo, maybe more.

He had a good season and enhanced his reputation at Forest.

Murillo has been linked with Manchester United, PSG, Liverpool and others – I’m told there is interest.

So I’m sure Forest, if they were to sell Murillo, will want a bit of a bidding war between those sides for his signature – all of those clubs have registered interest.

I think in the going market they will be looking at £40million as a reasonable fee.
