Man United intent on signing £106m striker – Correio da Manha

Goncalo Ramos - Portugal

Manchester United lack firepower upfront and after the departure of Ronaldo, they really need someone apart from Rashford to rely in the strike-force.

The Red Devils have been heavily linked with Portugal international, Goncalo Ramos, and the striker is once again in the lime light.

Transfer: JN – Man Utd not afraid to agree £66.5million fee to sign star

As per a story covered by Correio da Manha (news image provided below), Man Utd are intent on signing the Seleccao forward.

The news source have mentioned that the Red Devils do not give up on luring the 21-year-old, who rose to fame at the FIFA World Cup.

CdM claim the Old Trafford outfit have already lost out on signing Cody Gakpo to Liverpool. On the other hand, Joao Felix, could end up staying with Atletico Madrid.

Therefore, to reinforce the offense, Man Utd are looking at Goncalo Ramos. Before the World Cup, the youngster featured in 22 games for Benfica and directly contributed in 21 goals (15 goals and 6 assists).

In Qatar, he scored a fantastic hat-trick and provided an assist in the Round of 16 victory against Switzerland.

Back in October, he was valued at around £35million by the Eagles (JN). However, last month, Rui Costa made it clear that a player will only leave in the middle of the season if their clause is met.

As per 90min, Goncalo Ramos’ current deal at the Estadio da Luz contains an exit clause of 120 million euros (£106m).

Man Utd are in a direct battle with Liverpool to earn Champions League qualification and after losing a key target to their arch-rivals, Ten Hag must splash the cash to reinforce the attack this month.

In your view, should United spend big to sign Goncalo Ramos?

  1. He’s had one excellent game at the highest level. The rest of his stats are from a lesser league. You could be probably buy 5 strikers at 21yrs old with similar potential for that money.
