Manchester United Transfer News: Erik Ten Hag‘s search for a striker is still on, but reports suggest that it may end soon.
Ten Hag was busy bringing in six new signings like Casemiro, Antony, Tyrell Malacia, Lisandro Martinez, Christian Eriksen, and Martin Dubravka. But the club was not able to sign De Tomas on the deadline day from La Liga.
But the Dutch manager may still do some business in the January transfer window. Cristiano Ronaldo’s future at the club is still up in the air after not getting his preferred move in the summer. So, the Red Devils can go for Benfica’s star striker Ramos.

Other than Ronaldo, Rashford and Martial are not pure number 9, who can score goals consistently. If they can bring Ramos in for the right price, they will not miss the chance in January.
United did not do any business when attackers like Luis Diaz, Dejan Kulusevski, Dusan Vlahovic, Ferran Torres, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, and Julian Alvarez were all available on the market. All these players joined top European clubs.
Interest in Premier League is nothing new for Ramos. Newcastle, Leeds, and Southampton were all interested to bring him into their squad, but Wolves were very near to signing the Benfica forward.
