Manchester United ‘attentive’ to striker ahead of January window

Manchester United could make a move for a striker in January

Manchester United currently only have Anthony Martial and Cristiano Ronaldo as natural no.9s.

Ronaldo was desperate to leave United during the 2022 summer transfer window but was forced to stay put as no Champions League clubs wanted him.

Since staying at United, Ronaldo has struggled to win back a starting berth and has only scored one goal – a penalty in the Europa League last week.

As for Martial, he had a brilliant pre-season but has been inundated with injury issues so far this campaign.

This has left Marcus Rashford to fill the void up top. The Englishman has done a decent job so far, but he too has had his fair share of injury woes, and is currently a doubt for the Manchester derby on Sunday.

So, it is easy to see why Erik ten Hag is looking to add some more depth up front.

The man being targeted by Ten Hag and United is Benfica ace, Goncalo Ramos.

The striker has scored eight and assisted five in 12 games for Benfica so far this season.

And according to Portuguese outfit Jornal de Notícias, Manchester United and PSG are the most attentive to Goncalo Ramos’ performances at Benfica and there are signs ‘they may tighten in January’.
