Ramos was the subject of transfer interest from Newcastle United over the summer and scored in a 3-2 friendly win over the Magpies in July.

A potential £25m move has been touted but Newcastle have made a move for Alexander Isak instead.

But The Sun reported that Man United were now interested in the young striker in January and would be looking to offer around £25million for his services.

It has also been claimed that Ramos has a £100million release clause in his contract with Benfica – a figure highly unlikely to be met.
