Man Utd plan to track Andre Onana and Goncalo Ramos in upcoming Champions League tie

Manchester United are planning to track the performances of Inter Milan goalkeeper Andre Onana and Benfica striker Goncalo Ramos in the upcoming Champions League tie between the clubs.

The Nerazzurri progressed to the last eight of the Champions League after the heroics of Onana against Porto. Meanwhile, Ramos was also influential for Benfica versus Club Brugge.

The Portuguese bagged two goals and two assists in the 7-1 aggregate win in the round of 16.

It is now reported by FC Inter News that United are expected to monitor Onana and Ramos when Inter and Benfica meet in the first leg of the quarter-final tie at the Estadio da Luz.

The duo are currently highly regarded by the Red Devils and the club’s scouts will be looking to ‘add more information’ during the European clash in the Portuguese capital on April 11.

Onana and Ramos would improve Man Utd

United are currently in contract talks with David de Gea but they have yet to make a breakthrough. The Spaniard has no plans of accepting a huge pay-cut to stay at the club.

There is optimism that an agreement will be reached but regardless of this, manager Erik ten Hag may want a young shot-stopper who could succeed the Spaniard in future.

Onana was the number one under him at Ajax and he could be the perfect signing. The Cameroonian is a superb ball-playing goalkeeper with a pass accuracy of nearly 80 per cent.

Meanwhile, United are still lagging in the striking department compared to their Premier League rivals.

Wout Weghorst has barely impressed since his loan switch while Anthony Martial has failed to stay unscathed. He has sustained as many as five injuries in the current season.

They need a young marquee striker who can bring long-term success and Ramos would be ideal. The Portuguese has registered a stunning 24 goals and 10 assists for Benfica this term.

The big question remains whether United will spend big in the summer if the Glazers stay in charge.

Onana could cost €40 million while Ramos won’t be available for less than his €120m release clause.
