Sky Sports reporter reveals what he's heard about Man Utd and Rasmus Hojlund as one thing ruled out

Sky Sports reporter Dharmesh Sheth has revealed what he's heard about Rasmus Hojlund's potential move to Manchester United.

Erik ten Hag has already signed Mason Mount and Andre Onana this summer for a combined fee of £107 million.

However, the United boss is desperate to sign a new striker and has identified Atalanta's Hojlund as his priority target.

On Wednesday, the Red Devils submitted an opening offer worth €60m for the 20-year-old, after he already agreed personal terms with the Old Trafford club, according to Fabrizio Romano.

Meanwhile, Paris Saint-Germain are also interested in the Denmark international and launched an official bid for the player on Thursday morning. The offer is understood to be worth €50m, some €20m short of Atalanta's alleged asking price.

It has been reported that Hojlund has an agreement in place with the Ligue 1 giants too, although he is thought to prefer a move to Old Trafford.

And journalist, Sheth, has since revealed that United 'will not be swayed' by the French club's interest, nor will they overpay for Hojlund's signature.

"United will not be swayed or influenced by other clubs interest in Hojlund," Sheth said on Sky Sports' Transfer Show (quotes via Football Daily)

"United aren't looking at anyone else apart from themselves. They are thought to be quite relaxed and quite comfortable with the way they have approached this deal and are comfortable with what they would be offering.

"However, they are not going to overpay. We think Atalanta would want in the region if not more of around €70m.

"Early talks between the two clubs have been positive but they reveal a gap in valuation. We think Manchester United are probably around €10m or €15m short of what Atalanta would want.

"But there could be a compromise that could happen between the two clubs. However, United will not be waiting around. if they feel 'we've got to walk away from this deal because we don't think it's going to happen', they have got other options."
