If reports in the media are anything to go by then Manchester United are serious about signing Rasmus Hojlund from Atalanta.
As per today’s version of Corriere dello Sport, Atalanta rejected a bid worth 35 million euros from the Red Devils and demanded a sum of 45 million euros.
However, according to 90min, Man Utd made a second offer of 48 million euros and even that was turned down by the Serie A side.
The news source have mentioned that the Italian club are looking to get a minimum fee of £64m (75 million euros) for their prized asset.
United think the valuation is way too high and are only prepared to pay around £51.5m to sign Rasmus Hojlund.
The 20-year-old star is a big fan of Man Utd and is ready to join them. Moreover, his representatives believe the PL side’s valuation of the striker is fair.
Erik ten Hag is all set to get the players back for the pre-season still, the Dutch manager is yet to secure the priority signing of a center forward.
United must act fast and to get a top striker. Without a prolific No.9, they will not be able to challenge Man City for the title or the best teams in the Champions League.
If Hojlund is the prime target to reinforce the position and if the Danish starlet really wants to join, then United should ask him to submit a transfer request to help their cause. What do you think?
