Goncalo Ramos on Man United’s radar as they make contact with the player’s representatives

The representatives of Goncalo Ramos have been contacted by Manchester United with an eye toward a January transfer for the Benfica striker. Ramos is a Portugal Under-21 international.

At the request of manager Erik ten Hag, Manchester United is said to have gotten in touch with Goncalo Ramos’ agents.

Six new players arrived at Old Trafford during the busy summer transfer period under the direction of Ten Hag: Tyrell Malacia, Lisandro Martinez, Christian Eriksen, Casemiro, and Martin Dubravka were the first three.

The Dutch manager is still determined to bolster his forward line, and a January acquisition is not ruled out.

Following the denial of his summer transfer request, Cristiano Ronaldo is still determined to leave the Red Devils.

If he does, United will be short on choices in the center of the attack, which explains their interest in Ramos of Benfica.

The area that needs the most attention is up front, where Ronaldo’s uncertain future makes Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial the only proven central strikers for the Red Devils.

Despite having a good selection of wide strikers, United will need to bolster their assault. A January transfer is not out of the question should the right player become available.

Last season, the team didn’t bring in any new players in January, when big European clubs brought in players like Luis Diaz, Dejan Kulusevski, Dusan Vlahovic, Ferran Torres, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, and Julian Alvarez.

There is knowledge that Ramos, who formerly caught Newcastle’s eye, might become available in January.

Benfica advanced to the Champions League group stage thanks to a hat-trick from Ramos against Midtjylland and two goals and two assists against Dynamo Kyiv.

Ramos has already scored eight goals this season, matching his total from the previous one.

The Portuguese prodigy, who scored in last season’s tie between Benfica and Liverpool at Anfield, has emerged as Benfica’s primary attacking option following Darwin Nunez’s transfer to Liverpool.

Ramos is considered one of the country’s best prospects despite not having received any senior international experience for Portugal.

Ramos has scored 14 goals in 18 games for his under-21 team. According to a report in the Sun, he is valued at £25 million, which is considered attainable for United.

Ramos has been a key member of a Benfica squad that has won all 13 of its games in all competitions this season.

Ramos finished the current international break by scoring twice against Maritimo to guarantee that his team moved two points clear at the top of the Primeira Liga rankings. 

The 21-year-old, a product of Benfica’s renowned youth program, which he joined at age 12, may be the latest in a long line of players from the club to go for a sizable sum of money from Lisbon.
