Manchester United defeated Arsenal 2-0 last night in a friendly contest. Bruno Fernandes and Jadon Sancho were on the scoresheet.
New signing, Mason Mount, featured against the Gunners but Andre Onana was not part of the squad.
As far as the transfers are concerned, Man Utd are pushing to lure a striker in the form of Rasmus Hojlund and the player is waiting to seal his move to Old Trafford.
According to Alfredo Pedulla, the 20-year-old wants Manchester United and already has an agreement to join them.
Now, it is up to the Red Devils to hurry and present a bid to Atalanta. The Italian journalist claims Hojlund is waiting for Man Utd to act and complete the signing.
As per reports going on in the media (The Athletic), the Serie A side want a fee of 80 million euros for their prized asset (£69million).
On the other hand, according per Pedulla, the 20-time English champions should come close to a fixed fee of 60 million euros to convince Atalanta to sell their prized asset.
Even manager, Gasperini, has indicated that the Danish striker could be on his way out as the Bergamo club cannot refuse “certain numbers”
Hojlund’s goals-to-games ratio is not impressive by any means and it is surprising if Ten Hag thinks that he is an immediate solution to United’s strike-force conundrum.
