Atalanta 'unhappy' with tactics of Erik ten Hag's agent as Rasmus Hojlund negotiations continue

Atalanta 'unhappy' with tactics of Erik ten Hag's agent as Rasmus Hojlund negotiations continue

They're not happy.

Atalanta are “unhappy” with Erik ten Hag’s agent as the Serie A side continue discussion with Manchester United over Rasmus Hojlund.

As per the Independent United are in advanced talks with Atalanta over a deal for Hojlund, with the Premier League club negotiating how much of the transfer fee will be made up of add-ons.

United are said to be approaching an agreement for the 20-year-old, having tempered initial fears that the striker’s fee could be as high as £80million.

There is allegedly hope that a deal can now be struck for £60million - a fee that would bring the Old Trafford club’s summer recruitment under budget and compliant with Financial Fair Play.

Hojlund has agreed personal terms with United, with the player said to be excited about the prospect of moving to Old Trafford this summer.

Atalanta unhappy with Ten Hag’s agent

According to Gazzetta dello Sport, Hojlund has “long accepted” that he will move to United.

Atalanta too, have reportedly known for a while, that Hojlund is set to leave this summer.

Indeed, it reportedly became clear the Denmark international would be heading to pastures new when the forward switched agents to the company that currently managed Erik ten Hag.

As per the Italian publication, the new agency, SEG Verified, expressed their “willingness to take their client elsewhere”, which was “not liked” in Bergamo.

SEG allegedly solely focused on “the higher earnings” promised to the youngster by the Premier League side, a tactic that Sport Witness claim Atalanta were ‘unhappy’ with.

Should United sell in the coming months, it could pave the way for the purchase of Fiorentina’s Sofyan Amrabat in midfield.

As per the Independent, contact has already been made there, and the basics of a deal have been set up.
