    Good morning football fans

    Manchester United are preparing a £25million swoop to sign Benfica striker Goncalo Ramos, SunSport can reveal.

    Ramos, 21, has scored eight goals and registered five assists in 12 matches this season.

    It comes with Erik ten Hag wanting to continue his redevelopment of the Man United squad and boost The Red Devils firepower.

    Elsewhere, Barcelona are plotting a sensational swoop for Real Madrid star Marco Asensio.

    According to Mundo Deportivo, Xavi and Co would like to sign soon-to-be out of contract Real ace Asensio as their next marquee signing.

    Asensio, 26, will be out of contract at the Bernabeu next summer and could leave for free.

    The report goes on to state that if his contract situation is the same come the winter transfer window, Barca may decide to act then.

    And Premier League clubs are reportedly considering plans to SCRAP replays in the FA Cup.

    That’s as part of a “New Deal for Football”, which could also see sides play U21 sides in the Carabao Cup.

    The Times claims the proposals are at the heart of talks at Wednesday’s Premier League shareholders’ meeting.

    Discussions will take place over ideas to potentially deliver £250million in extra funds to the EFL while also reforming parachute payments.

    And one proposal is to permanently cut FA Cup replays in the third and fourth rounds from 2024.

    As for the Carabao Cup, teams playing in Europe could field their U21s in a bid to freshen up the competition – or even withdraw entirely.
