Bruno Fernandes urges Man Utd to consider signing Benfica star Goncalo Ramos
| Last updated
Manchester United star Bruno Fernandes has urged the club to consider the signing of Benfica striker Goncalo Ramos, saying he can become 'one of the best strikers in the world'.
The Portugal international also netted a stunning hat-trick during a 6-1 win over Switzerland in the last 16 of the World Cup in December, after replacing Cristiano Ronaldo in manager Fernando Santos' starting XI.
Now, Fernandes has talked up the ability and potential of his international compatriot - but added that the final decision on whether to bring him to Old Trafford rests with United.
Fernandes on Ramos
Speaking to Brazilian outlet Sportv (via A Bola), Fernandes explained: "If he [Ramos] continues to work as he has worked so far, I believe he has the potential to be one of the best strikers in the world.
"He's already close to that level, but he still needs to go to a more competitive league and prove it there. I believe he has the capabilities for that.
"Here [in England], the best always work out, whether Goncalo or someone else. He has all the qualities to play in the Premier League, and when I say Premier League, I also mean Manchester United.
"I think he could become a great reference in the coming years, but it's still not in my hands to be sports director. When I become one, I will make those decisions."
