Manchester United are preparing a bid to bring in this striker

Here is some Man United news for you…

Manchester United are considering a proposal for Benfica attacker Goncalo Ramos, according to reports.

The 21-year-old has eight goals in 12 appearances for the Portuguese side this season, which has piqued the interest of United officials who are looking for a forward.

The Sun reports that United will not pay more than the £25 million that Benfica values Ramos at, but that they have already made contact with the forward’s representation.

Erik ten Hag, the club’s new manager, is said to have his hands tied ahead of the January transfer window, with the Galzer family supposedly planning a quiet window after spending £230 million in the summer.

However, it is expected that they would want to bring in a forward, with Cristiano Ronaldo still looking to go 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.

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

He’s on his way to a big European league after continuing his outstanding form into this year after scoring against Liverpool in last season’s Champions League quarterfinal, providing assistance to Reds summer signing Darwin Nunez.

Man Utd, meanwhile, are hoping to continue their fine form after the international break, having won four games in a row, including victory over Liverpool and Arsenal, following back-to-back defeats at the start of the season.

Rashford hopeful of returning for Manchester derby

According to ESPN, Manchester United FC hopes to have Marcus Rashford available for the derby against Manchester City next month after the international break.

Rashford has missed the last two games after suffering a muscular injury in Arsenal’s 3-1 victory on September 4.

The 24-year-old was not selected for England’s Nations League games against Italy and Germany over the summer break, but there is optimism at Old Trafford that he will be fit for the trip to the Etihad on Oct. 2.

The club’s medical staff believes the injury is not significant, and he should be available to play versus City if he is ready to re-join training with the rest of the group by next week.
