United have received a boost in their hunt for a striker this summer with Benfica ready to sell Goncalo Ramos for £80m.
After deciding to withdraw from the Harry Kane deal, Man United returned to Goncalo Ramos. Benfica is ready to sit at the negotiating table and listen to offers for the Portuguese striker. Ramos has been in impressive form for the 2022/23 season, scoring 25 goals for club and country.
After selling Darwin Nunez to Liverpool the previous summer for a fee of £85 million, Benfica continued to aim for another blockbuster deal. Goncalo Ramos promises a transfer fee of around £80 million, not including extra fees. Ramos’ agent Jorgen Mendes has begun negotiations with Premier League clubs.
Coach Ten Hag prioritizes recruiting one more striker in this summer transfer window. In addition to Marcus Rashford, MU’s strikers all performed unsatisfactory last season.
Man United refuse to pay a hefty fee for Kane, but can still decide to invest because Ramos can contribute to the long term. In addition to the Portuguese star, MU is also targeting 20-year-old Atalanta striker Rasmus Hojlund. The Italian team also wants to get £86 million from this deal. Meanwhile, Napoli are determined to keep Osimhen, unless they collect 131 million pounds.
With huge transfer fees, Man United is likely to withdraw from the signings of Kane and Osimhen. It is likely that MU will spend a moderate amount of money to bring in a potential striker.
