Is Rasmus Hojlund joining Manchester United?

Following the arrival of Mason Mount from Chelsea, the Red Devils and Erik ten Hag appear to be looking for more signings.

However, United are expected to spend about £100 million this summer, which means that player sales may be required at Old Trafford, with up to 13 players of the squad potentially leaving in the coming months.

Following David de Gea’s departure, Andre Onana is a major target in goal, and it is reported that a verbal agreement has been reached with the Champions League ahead of a £47 million deal.

The Cameroon international has already signed personal terms with the Red Devils, and sources say that Hojlund has also agreed to terms with United, despite the fact that the Denmark international revealed earlier this year that he is a “huge” Red Devils fan.

“Now that you’ve asked, I won’t deny that I am a huge Manchester United fan.”

“So, personally, it would be one of the most important things for me, but that doesn’t mean I wouldn’t turn down offers from other big clubs at some point.”

The Red Devils appear to have confirmed their interest in the forward by making a proposition to Atalanta. According to The Athletic, Manchester United offered players in addition to cash for Hojlund during talks with the Serie A club, but they rejected down the offer since they only want cash and valued the player at £85.5 million, a number United considers exorbitant.

According to the source, Fred and Donny van de Beek were prospective players who may have been offered, despite the fact that both midfielders missed the opening pre-season game against Leeds United on Wednesday.

Rasmus Hojlund, how good are you?

Hojlund is only 20 years old, but he has already made an impact in his debut season at Atalanta, propelling his Transfermarkt worth to a career-high €45 million.

Last season, he scored 14 goals in 34 appearances and was compared to Manchester City’s Erling Haaland. Hojlund has been dubbed “scary quick” by journalist Sacha Pisani and praised by Atalanta manager Gian Piero Gasperini, who noted the forward’s speed and called his technical ability “remarkable.”

“Hojlund has a remarkable spirit, energy, and intensity, as well as technical quality.”

“He still has a lot of room for improvement.” He is so fast that he can run 100m in under 11 seconds without even trying. He has a low center of gravity for his height and can move his legs very quickly. I’m confident he’ll have a successful career; he’s becoming stronger by the day.”

Hojlund, an out-and-out center-forward who appears to be on the rise, might be exactly what is needed in attack in both the short and long term, but with Atalanta holding out for a monetary contribution, a transfer could prove difficult.
