The Red Devils are said to be targeting a new striker when the summer transfer window opens. Indeed, many leading British sources such as The Athletic, The Times or The Guardian all reveɑled that Harry Kane or Victor Osimhen would soon be in the sights of Man Utd.
The two strikers mentioned above are certainly big names, with values that have been established throughout the years. In addition, the Red Devils can sign a striker for a bit cheaper, should also pursue 21-year-old Benfica star Goncalo Ramos.
Goncalo Ramos is shining in the color of Benfica
Reporter Fabrizio Romano mentioned Ramos’ case related to Man Utd. Ten Hag needs an ɑssassin like the Benfica star, in the context of Anthony Martial or injury and Wout Weghorst cannot seize the opportunity this season.
Most recently, Ramos once again shined. Accordingly, the Portuguese striker scored twice to help Benfica beɑt Club Brugge 5-1 and win the final 7-1 in the second leg of the round of 16 of the UEFA Champions League.
Ramos displays superhuman technique and the ability to seize the moment. The first table can be considered a masterpiece. Accordingly, Ramos received the ball in the penalty area before dribbling the ball past 3 Club Brugge players and hitting Simon Mignolet’s net.
When he made the score 3-0, Ramos made a smart run in the ice and launched an unstoppable decisive footwork. This player can both fιght independently and coordinate well with teammates.
Ramos showed impressive scoring ability.
“I met Ramos about 10 times last year and he looks like he’s improved 10 times this year,” said former player Steve McManaman. “He really has the world at his feet.”
Ramos hit the milestone of 23 goals and 9 assists in 34 appearances for the top team of the Portuguese league this season. Transfermarkt values the striker at £35.6m – which is almost £70m cheaper than Victor Osimhen and Harry Kane.
Ramos is valued much cheaper than Osimhen and Harry Kane
In fɑct, Benfica certainly doesn’t sell Ramos for cheap. Darwin Nunez is an example. He joined Liverpool for £64m last summer, with a deal that could rise to £85m thanks to additional terms.
Goncalo Ramos has the potential to develop into a top player and Erik ten Hag can help with that.
However, it remains to be seen whether the Red Devils are ready for the price Benfica wants, as the player has a release clause of 120 million euros. The Portuguese football representative wants to collect as much money as possible.
However, Ramos, 3 years younger than Osimhen and 8 years younger than Kane, clearly still has a cheaper price than this duo. In the match against Brugge, Ramos showed all his talents on the biggest stage in Europe.
Ramos has great growth potential
Ramos is very hard working for the team, which will attract coach Erik ten Hag. But most of all, this player has a better scoring ability than Wout Weghorst. Since arriving at Old Trafford, Weghorst has only opened fire once.
Of course, Ramos still has a lot to improve but at such a young age his career seems to be only going up.
And with the work Ten Hag has done with the likes of Marcus Rashford, Jadon Sancho and Alejandro Garnacho, Ramos could become a sharper striker at Old Trafford.
