United ripped up the five-time Ballon d’Or winner’s contract following a sit-down interview with SunSport columnist and TalkTV main man, Piers Morgan.

In that interview, Ronaldo accused the Red Devils of betrayal while also revealing he did not respect Erik ten Hag.

A dismal World Cup campaign followed, which saw Ronaldo score just one goal.

Portugal then crashed out in the quarter-finals to dark horses Morocco.

Burnley’s Wout Weghorst, 30, is currently filling the gap left by the legendary forward.

But according to the Daily Mail, United are eyeing two younger strikers ahead of potential summer moves.

Benfica’s Ramos, 21, is on United’s radar following his impressive World Cup campaign, which saw the forward BENCH Ronaldo for the knockout stages.

He even scored a hat-trick in the round of 16 win over Switzerland while Ronaldo manned the bench.


The report goes on to quote that an outlet in Portugal, O Jogo, say Benfica would like to reward Ramos with a new contract and increase his release clause, which already stands at £105million.

Napoli striker Osimhen is also high on United’s list of strikers.

The 24-year-old is living up to his £65.8m 2020 transfer switch that saw him trade Lille for Naples.

He has 13 goals across all competitions this season, and is helping Napoli hold top spot in the Serie A.

Napoli are nine points clear of title holders AC Milan.

And according to the Naples based Il Mattino newspaper, Osimhen is hoping to help Napoli secure a first Serie A title since 1990 before discussing his future in the summer.

United were keen on the Nigeria international in the summer but were told to cough up big bux with the striker now valued at £135m.
