Since Erik ten Hag arrived at Manchester United, it has been clear that he wants to compete with the best teams in the Premier League and return to the UEFA Champions League as soon as possible. But for that, he needs a unique team, which is still under construction. A better squad is needed to reach its goal.

He has already changed quite a few players, like defender Harry Macguire. The Englishman has not had much participation since Erik ten Hag took the manager role. The Dutchman has a new duo for central defense: Raphael Varane and Lisandro Martinez. And the Englishman has not been the only one affected since Wan Bissaka has not played either because Dalot is in the starting lineup.

As if that were not enough, Manchester United's strikers are different from last season. To begin with, Sancho has finally begun to play and recover at the level he had at Borussia Dortmund. And Marcus Rashford has finally given better performances. But Cristiano Ronaldo now suffers from those performances as the Portuguese have now been relegated to the bench.

A replacement for Ronaldo

It is undeniable that Cristiano Ronaldo had a unique season last year. He was basically the only forward-looking for the team to be at the top of the Premier League table. But he is already finishing his career and that is why Ten Hag now wants Goncalo Ramos from Benfica. He would cost 25 million Pounds and would arrive in January.
