It’s no secret that Manchester United will be after a centre-forward, either in the January window or in the summer. Goncalo Ramos fits the bill of a young, prolific frontman that can get on the end of chances.
With Cristiano Ronaldo leaving on a free transfer to join Al Nassr, it’s left Erik ten Hag’s side short of strikers up top. The likes of Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial can play centrally and that will have to be the option, but there is a feeling that they are both more suited to playing as wingers, cutting inside from the left.
Despite a poor start, ten Hag has got United firing as of late and the Red Devils have been on a good run with Rashford on red-hot form down the left. An out-and-out talisman up front could elevate United even further, with a proper striker up front to pounce on the chances made by United’s strong attacking side.
With Ronaldo gone, it looks inevitable that United will turn to the transfer market to replace him. It could be Ramos, who came in to replace Ronaldo for Portugal at the World Cup, who takes his place again at Old Trafford.
