Manchester United will be hoping to move a step closer to securing a place in the Premier League’s top four when they host Wolves on Saturday. 

The Red Devils currently occupy fourth spot and need three wins from their final four matches to ensure they remain there and qualify for next season’s Champions League.

Rivals Liverpool sit just a point behind, though, and will be looking to pounce if Erik ten Hag’s side slip up at any point.

United look likely to be busy during the upcoming summer transfer window, with a number of players having been linked with a move to Old Trafford.

Now, it appears that the club have held talks with one of their top targets and could be plotting a huge offer.

According to The Mirror, the Red Devils have held talks with Benfica over a proposed move for striker Goncalo Ramos.

The 21-year-old is enjoying a fine season for the Portuguese side, scoring 25 goals and providing 11 assists in 44 matches across all competitions so far.

Ramos is a target for Manchester United this summer

United are said to be looking for a new striker to lead the line next season, with the club having failed to properly replace Cristiano Ronaldo who departed last November.

Wout Weghorst arrived on loan from Championship side Burnley in January but has so far struggled in Manchester, failing to score a single Premier League goal for United in 14 appearances.

The Dutchman is set to return to his parent club at the end of the season, and United have been linked with the likes of Harry Kane and Victor Osimhen in their search for a new striker.

United could have to pay a remarkable fee of up to £100 million including add-ons to land Ramos this summer, although the report claims that the club remain interested in Kane and could make offers for both.

If the Manchester outfit were to pay £100 million for Ramos, it would make the Portugal international the most expensive signing in the club’s history.

At the World Cup last year, Ramos netted a hat-trick and provided an assist as Portugal defeated Switzerland 6-1 at the quarter-final stage.
