Goncalo Ramos might cost Manchester United £70 million, according to Football Insider. As a potential replacement for Harry Kane, Benfica may lower their asking price for the 25-goal striker from Portugal.

In the summer, Manchester United will concentrate on signing a star striker. Erik ten Hag chose to sign Wout Weghorst to a six-month loan from Burnley rather than spend big money on a new frontman in January.

Given that both forwards are expected to leave in the summer, neither Anthony Martial nor Weghorst appear to have any prospects beyond the current campaign. Manchester United wants a long-term solution that will assist Ten Hag elevate the caliber of the attack and position them as formidable opponents across the board.

Without a recognized frontman, Manchester United’s season has clearly suffered. Although Victor Osimhen and other well-known figures have been discussed, Harry Kane seems to be Ten Hag’s first choice to lead the line.

Despite being in the final year of his contract with Tottenham, Kane may fetch upwards of £100 million this summer. Although they are aware of the difficulties in dealing with Spurs Chairman Daniel Levy, Manchester United would like to have the England captain.

Because chasing Kane could cause them to miss their window entirely, they don’t want to waste time or miss other targets in the process. Ten Hag, who might end up being a Kane substitute for Manchester United, still has Goncalo Ramos as a choice. Benfica, which fought hard to keep hold of the 25-goal striker in January, has received praise for his performance for the club.

His £105 million release clause needed to be met in January, according to the Portuguese team. The same way they forced Chelsea to pay the full release clause in order to recruit Enzo Fernandez by negotiating a deal with the London club.

The summer window may see a shift in their position since they may be willing to accept a lower bid price. According to the report, Benfica could accept offers of up to £70 million. Compared to his release clause of roughly £105 million, the price range appears to be far lower.

The Manchester United management may be pleased with the news and continue to make a priority of acquiring Kane. Ramos, who has 25 goals for Benfica, has already proven himself with some ruthless displays and 10 assists in 37 appearances.

It won’t be a good idea for Manchester United to delay hiring a new striker. Ten Hag wants the forward to report early so they can start preseason with their new No.9. Ramos sounds like a nice choice, but it will take him some time to adjust, whereas Kane won’t.
