Erik ten Hag admires 21-year-old who could be Harry Kane alternative

Manchester United have been linked with an alternative to Harry Kane.


Manchester United’s lack of striking options has been clear for some time now.

Wout Weghorst joined the club on loan in January to help plug the gap for the second half of the season.

However, when the summer roles around, it is clear Manchester United will be in the market for a top no.9.

One of the names being linked is Harry Kane of Tottenham and England.

Kane’s future in north London is up in the air amid more struggles from a Spurs side who continue to look very unlikely to lift a trophy anytime soon.

However, Manchester United and any other potential suitors were dealt a blow on the Kane front on Monday morning.

It was claimed that conversations over a new contract are planned for once the winter market shuts and, if the circumstances are right, Kane is open to signing a new deal.

This leaves Manchester United likely needing to look elsewhere and they have seemingly done so.

According to the Manchester Evening News, Erik ten Hag likes 21-year-old Portuguese forward Goncalo Ramos as a potential option, with it added that the likes of Kane and Osimhen could cost huge money.

Ramos made a name for himself at the 2022 World Cup when he replaced Cristiano Ronaldo in Portugal’s XI and scored a hat-trick.

He has also been in fine form for Benfica so far this season and is expected to make a big move this summer.
