Man Utd 'ready to submit' Rasmus Hojlund bid but will 'not entertain' one Atalanta transfer demand

Man Utd 'ready to submit' Rasmus Hojlund bid but will 'not entertain' one Atalanta transfer demand

It's a major development.

Manchester United have agreed personal terms with Rasmus Hojlund and will submit a bid later this week , it has been claimed.

Having already signed Mason Mount and Andre Onana this summer, United have turned their attention to Atalanta striker Hojlund.

Indeed, according to transfer guru Fabrizio Romano, the Old Trafford club have agreed personal terms for the Danish youngster.

The Italian journalist said, in a tweet: “Understand terms of Manchester United agreement with Rasmus Højlund and his camp on personal terms are now clear: five-year deal, 2028.

“Told contract will include an option for a further year.

“Man United will bid this week but for the right fee — not entertaining €90/100m ‘games’.”

United will allegedly submit a bid for the striker in the coming days, but are reportedly unwilling to pay more than £60million, as they wrestle with tight financial constraints governing spending.

Man Utd have "made progress" on striker hunt

United are in talks with the Serie A side over a move but have insisted they won’t pay the £86million valuation of the player, who has made less than 90 senior club appearances.

Speaking while on United's US tour Erik ten Hag said progress was being made in the club's hunt for a new striker after admitting United had underperformed in front of goal last season and needed more cutting edge.

“We make progress, yeah, but we know how it works and when we have him, we will tell you directly,” the Dutchman said, via the Telegraph.

“The only thing I can say is we do everything that’s in our power to get it done. If it was up to me, as soon as possible, because we have to integrate him.

“In an ideal situation, he would already be here but you do not always get ideal situations and you have to deal with the situation.”

Last season United scored the fewest goals of the Premier League's top six, netting just 58 times in 38 games, and Ten Hag insisted more players needed to contribute in front of goal.

The Dutchman said: “We are underperforming there and we are aware of it so others have to contribute also in that area and therefore we are looking for scoring abilities."
