New manager Erik ten Hag is believed to have his hands tied ahead of the January transfer window, with the Galzer family reportedly planning a quiet window after spending £230million in the summer.

It is however believed that they will look to bring in a forward, with Cristiano Ronaldo still looking to leave the club and Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial currently injured.

Newcastle were keeping an eye on Ramos in the summer window as Eddie Howe’s side looked for a striker, but they instead signed Alexander Isak for £63million.

A Portugal U21 international, Ramos has scored 20 goals in 59 games for Benfica in total.

He’s set to move to a major European league soon, having continued his fine form into this year after scoring against Liverpool in last season’s Champions League quarterfinal, playing support to Reds summer signing Darwin Nunez.

United meanwhile are hoping they will be able to build on a good run of form after the international break after winning four games in a row – including victories against Liverpool and Arsenal – following back-to-back defeats at the start the season.
