Newcastle United eye Goncalo Ramos swoop

Newcastle United have set their sights on Benfica striker Goncalo Ramos, but the Portuguese giants €80 million asking price poses a challenge.

The 22-year-old has attracted interest from top clubs, including Manchester United, but the inflated price tag is causing hesitation.

Despite the ongoing transfer window, clubs have yet to make concrete moves for the Portugal international, who has displayed impressive performances for Benfica and the national team have further boosted his value.

Benfica’s chief believes Man United will eventually meet the asking price, which is lower than their previous demand. Newcastle, known for their interest in young players, is keen to invest heavily as they prepare for a return to the Champions League.

Newcastle United manager Eddie Howe is ready to make a move, but it remains unclear if the Premier League outfit will meet Benfica’s demands.

There have been reports of a €60 million bid, possibly from Newcastle, to test Benfica’s resolve. However, it is unlikely that the Magpies will match the €80 million price, and they may look to negotiate a lower fee.
