Ten Hag eyeing Man United move for“prolific” £104m “hero”, just imagine him and Bruno!

Manchester United are reportedly interested in signing Benfica sensation Goncalo Ramos, with the Portugal international having enjoyed a stunning start to the campaign for both club and country.

According to The Athletic‘s Andy Mitten, the 21-year-old is said to be a player that Red Devils boss Erik ten Hag ‘likes’, with a new forward addition seemingly a ‘priority’ following the recent departure of Cristiano Ronaldo.

The Old Trafford outfit may well face a battle to land the striker next month, though, with the report also suggesting that the Lisbon outfit are seemingly in no rush to part ways with their prized asset, having only sold Darwin Nunez to Liverpool in the summer for a reported figure of around £85m.

It could well take an even greater fee than that if United are to snap up the exciting Ramos in 2023, with the Primeira Liga giants seemingly holding out for the youngster’s hefty release clause of roughly €120m (£104m).

Ramos has warranted such interest as a result of his sparkling form in the early months of the current campaign, with the “incredibly prolific” ace – as described by talent scout Jacek Kulig – having scored 14 goals and registered six assists in just 21 games for Benfica so far this term.

That hot streak – which follows a tally of eight goals across all fronts last term alongside the aforementioned Nunez – has also now continued onto the international stage, with the Olhao native having scored four goals in just five senior caps for Portugal.
