PSG lining up SL Benfica striker and Manchester United target Goncalo Ramos bid

Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) are lining up a bid for SL Benfica star Goncalo Ramos amidst interest from Manchester United, according to CM (h/t Manchester Evening News).

The Parisians are interested in acquiring the Portugal international’s services in the ongoing transfer window. To that end, the Parc des Princes side are expected to make an €80 million offer to the Eagles for him ‘in the coming days’.

As things stand, the Red Devils also have the 22-year-old on their radar. However, at the moment, Atalanta’s Rasmus Hojlund is the Old Trafford side’s main target to bolster the striking department.

Ramos made his way through the youth ranks at Benfica and became a regular fixture in their first-team setup in the 2021/22 season. However, with the departure of Darwin Nunez, who joined Liverpool last summer, the Portuguese took the mantle at the Primeira Liga outfit in the previous campaign.

The youngster showcased his goalscoring prowess last term. He made 47 appearances in all competitions for the Eagles, scoring 27 goals and providing 12 assists.

In the 2022 World Cup, the 22-year-old caught a lot of people’s attention as well. He replaced former United star Cristiano Ronaldo in the starting lineup in Qatar and put in some impressive performances.

Right now, the Red Devils could evidently do with someone like Ramos in their ranks. Anthony Martial is the only natural striker at Erik ten Hag’s disposal at the moment.

Therefore, the Portugal international’s addition to the team will evidently add more depth and quality to our ranks. Also, with the former AS Monaco star struggling with injuries for some time now, we need a reliable striker in our ranks.

However, it remains to be seen whether Ramos will be the one to solve the Old Trafford side’s issues up front. PSG lost Lionel Messi this summer and it will be interesting to see whether the Portuguese will be the one to fill his void at the Parc des Princes side.
