The Red Devils were actually in pole position to sign the Eagles attacker back in June.
According to the latest rumors, the Seleccao star has agreed to join Paris Saint-Germain.
The French champions, according to Le Parisien, have reached an agreement with the 22-year-old attacker and must now negotiate a fee with the Primeira Liga champions.
According to the report, Benfica are expecting a sum of £69 million (80 million euros) to allow Goncalo Ramos to depart during the current transfer window.
It should be noted that Manchester United agreed to a considerably more expensive deal to capture Rasmus Hojlund from Atalanta.
In the previous season, the Danish center striker only scored 9 goals in Serie A. Ramos, on the other hand, scored 19 league goals to assist the Lisbon team win the Liga Nos.
Furthermore, the 7-cap international demonstrated his worth at the FIFA World Cup, scoring a stunning hat-trick against Switzerland in the Round of 16.
We’ve lost famous goal scorers like Edinson Cavani and Cristiano Ronaldo in recent transfer windows. Only signing an untested and unproven striker like Hojlund would be insufficient to replace the duo.
Now that Ramos has agreed to join PSG, who should Erik ten Hag try to entice to bolster the strike force at Old Trafford?
