Goncalo Ramos release clause revealed amid Manchester United and Newcastle United interest

Benfica striker Goncalo Ramos is one of the hottest properties in Europe, having embarked on a stellar goalscoring run this season.

The 21-year-old has netted 23 goals and nine assists in all competitions for Benfica.

He caught everyone’s attention with his heroics in the World Cup, where he scored a sensational hat-trick against Switzerland in the round of 16.

With his stock witnessing a meteoric rise, European heavyweights are queuing up to sign Ramos this summer.

Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano has provided a major update on the Portuguese star’s future, stating that Benfica do not want to lose him.

However, he revealed there is a release clause worth €120 million in Ramos’ contract – similar to that of Enzo Fernandez – which can be exercised in the summer.

Premier League giants Manchester United and Newcastle United are keeping tabs on his situation alongside Ligue 1 powerhouse Paris Saint-Germain.

PSG had Ramos on their wishlist last summer after being recommended by their famous football director Luis Campos. However, the move never came to fruition after Benfica refused to sell him.

The Portuguese outfit’s stance remains the same – they want to keep Ramos at all costs, or it would require an exorbitant fee to part ways with him – similar to Fernandez’s case.

Man United are looking to sign a high-profile striker next summer, and Ramos is one of their priority targets alongside Victor Osimhen.

PSG could also have a crack at signing the Benfica prodigy again, as they might undergo a summer overhaul following the Champions League elimination.

Ramos’ current focus is on helping Benfica go far in the Champions League, having netted twice in the recent win over Club Brugge, which helped his side progress to the quarter-finals.
