If Man United were to sign Onana, they would be reuniting him with former Ajax coach Erik Ten Hag, who took over at Old Trafford last summer.

The Red Devils are looking for a signing at centre-forward, and 21-year-old Portuguese international Ramos is one of the top names on their list, the outlet reports.
