Rasmus Hojlund ‘holds talks with Atalanta chiefs’ as fresh Man Utd transfer demand revealed

Rasmus Hojlund ‘holds talks with Atalanta chiefs’ as fresh Man Utd transfer demand revealed

Hojlund has reiterated his desire.

Atalanta star Rasmus Hojlund has reportedly held further talks with his current club's chief executive amid transfer interest from Manchester United.

United will reportedly turn their attentions to acquiring the Denmark international striker after a move for Inter Milan goalkeeper Andre Onana is officially completed.

According to The Athletic, United have booked a flight for Onana to join the first team squad in the United States for a pre-season tour, and the signing could be announced in the next 48 hours.

Manager Erik ten Hag's next priority will then be to secure the signing of a centre forward, having already seemingly missed out on Tottenham's Harry Kane.

At 20 years of age, Hojlund possesses little experience of top level football, and scored 10 goals last season in Serie A.

But his potential is clear, and at 6ft 2in tall, he combines pace and power with strong aerial ability.

On Monday, Fabrizio Romano claimed that United were planning an official bid for Hojlund, with Atalanta requesting a fee of around €70 million.

The forward, who has admitted to being a United fan growing up, is said to be very keen on the move - and he has now reportedly held fresh talks with Atalanta chiefs.

Hojlund 'makes transfer demand'

According to Italian outlet Calciomercato (via Sport Witness), Hojlund and his representatives spoke with Atalanta CEO Luca Percassi during the club's pre-season training camp.

The report claims that Hojlund reiterated his desire to move to United this summer. Furthermore, Atalanta are said to have 'no intention of opposing this departure', but will stick by their €70 million valuation.

However, BBC Sport claim that United do not want to overpay to sign the 20-year-old striker, and want to strictly stick to their budget that has been limited due to Financial Fair Play (FFP) restrictions.

That could change if player sales occur, however. Alex Telles is close to joining Saudi Pro League side Al Nassr for £4 million, while midfielder Fred has been linked with a move to Fulham.
