Benfica striker Goncalo Ramos was linked with a move to Manchester United earlier this week.
The Sun claim the Portuguese striker is being considered by United and that he could be available at £25 million in the summer.
It was hard to believe since Ramos reportedly has a £100m release clause and he has managed to score eight goals in 12 matches this season.
When you consider how they took Liverpool for a ride with their Darwin Nunez price tag, I don’t think Benfica will be looking to do any favours next summer.
However, there has been an update from A Bola…
The report claims that Benfica are trying to tie Ramos down to a new deal to fend off interest from other clubs, even though I doubt they will have any problems with the apparent release clause if that is true.
With Cristiano Ronaldo in the final year of his contract and 37-years-old, it would make sense for United to scout the market for the next best goalscorer in Europe.
We missed the train for Erling Haaland in the summer.
Ramos has a big season ahead of him to attract the best suitors in Europe because there is a shortage of rising strikers in the game. Benjamin Sesko is another young option United missed out on in the summer.
