Manchester United is reportedly gearing up to intensify their pursuit of Benfica striker Goncalo Ramos as they aim to bolster their attacking options in the upcoming summer transfer window.
Ramos, who is highly regarded as a promising talent, has caught the attention of the Red Devils as they seek to revamp their team.
His impressive performances earned him a spot in Portugal’s 26-man squad for the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar. Making his senior international debut in a friendly against Nigeria on 17 November, Ramos made an immediate impact by scoring the third goal and providing an assist in a convincing 4-0 victory. He continued to shine in the tournament, starting ahead of Cristiano Ronaldo in Portugal’s round of 16 game against Switzerland. Ramos displayed his prowess by netting a hat-trick and contributing an assist in a resounding 6-1 triumph, becoming the first player since 1990 to achieve a World Cup knockout stage hat-trick.
Known for his versatility, Ramos showcases his adaptability by excelling in various offensive positions, including striker and second striker roles. He often drops deeper to actively participate in building attacking plays, involving his teammates and creating opportunities for other players.
According to The Mirror, Manchester United considers Ramos a more feasible target compared to high-profile names like Harry Kane and Victor Osimhen. Acquiring the latter two from their respective clubs, Tottenham and Napoli, is expected to present significant challenges.
