Goncalo Ramos will be offered a new contract with Benfica amid links to Manchester United
Benfica striker Goncalo Ramos was linked with a move to Manchester United earlier this week.
The Sun claim the Portuguese forward is being considered by United and could be available for £25million in the summer.
It was hard to believe as Ramos reportedly has a £100m release clause and has managed to score eight goals in 12 games 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 doing themselves any favors 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 contract to fend off interest from other clubs, although I doubt they will have any issues with the apparent release clause if that is true.
With Cristiano Ronaldo in the final year of his contract and aged 37, it would make sense for United to look in the market for Europe’s next top scorer.
We missed the train to Erling Haaland in the summer.
Ramos has a big season ahead of him to attract the best suitors in Europe as there is a dearth of starting strikers in the game. Benjamin Sesko is another young option that United missed out on in the summer.
