Manchester United are close to signing a replacement for Cristiano Ronaldo, the Portuguese and Saudi Al-Nasr player, for a hefty sum to bolster their ranks in the coming period.
The Portuguese star left the United ranks ahead of the Saudi victory after his contract was terminated due to disagreements with the English club’s management and team coach Eric Ten Hag.
According to the British newspaper The Mirror, United want to sign Gonzalo Ramos, a Benfica player, to support the team.
Cristiano Ronaldo’s replacement is on the cusp of moving to Manchester United for an astronomical sum.
The source indicated that the English club is willing to pay 120 million euros, the cost of a penalty clause in the Portuguese player’s contract, to include him at the Mercato next summer.
The source stressed that the Benfica club refuses to sell a player who has a contract until 2026 if he does not receive a penalty clause.
It is worth noting that Gonzalo Ramos managed to score 25 goals and give 10 assists in 37 matches for Benfica this season in various tournaments.
The 21-year-old also had a remarkable performance for Portugal at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, scoring three “hat-tricks” in his first match against South Korea, while the player was playing instead of Ronaldo at the time.
