Manchester United are all set to break the bank for the services of 21-year-old Portuguese striker Goncalo Ramos.

According to a report by Fichajes, Manchester United are keen on having Goncalo Ramos in their ranks. The 21-year-old striker has made quite a name for himself in the ongoing season. And quite a few clubs after his signature, with the Red Devils ready to shell out €115 million to secure his services.

The Red Devils’ priority heading into the upcoming transfer window is to sign a new striker. And, they have their eyes on the Benfica forward, who came into the limelight while playing for Portugal in the FIFA World Cup 2022.

The 21-year-old grabbed the headlines when he scored a hat-trick against Switzerland in the Round of 16 of the World Cup. He started ahead of Portugal skipper Cristiano Ronaldo and made sure the team did not miss their star striker.

Ever since his performance on the global stage, quite a few clubs have been keen on having him at their disposal. The Portugal international has come through the ranks at Benfica and established himself as one of their most important players of late. The 21-year-old has been involved in 36 goals in the ongoing season. He has scored 25 and assisted 11 goals in the ongoing campaign.

While his contract at the Portuguese club runs until the summer of 2026, Ramos is expected to be on the move in the summer. And, Benfica have placed a €115 million price tag on their striker. Meanwhile, Manchester United are interested in having him in their ranks.

The Red Devils have done a great job in the ongoing season. However, Erik ten Hag has identified a few key areas that need strengthening. The Dutch manager’s priority heading into next season is to have a new number nine. He wants to add a new forward who can share the goalscoring load with Marcus Rashford. And, he believes Ramos could help their cause.

While Manchester United are not the only club interested in the services of the 21-year-old, they seem to be ready to pay the €115 million that Benfica would demand for his departure. Offloading Ramos will not only bring in a great amount. But it will also allow the Portuguese club to strengthen themselves ahead of next season.
