Man Utd agree £93.5million terms in fee and wages to secure signing – Report

Rasmus Hojlund - Denmark

Manchester United are set to finally hand Erik ten Hag a new number nine, with multiple reports in England and Italy suggesting the agreement with Atalanta over Rasmus Hojlund’s transfer fee has been reached.

Heading into the summer, the Dutch coach’s biggest priority was adding a goal threat to a side that scored fewer league goals than as many as seven Premier League sides last season.

Harry Kane was earmarked as the man to lead the Red Devils’ attack for the next term, but Tottenham Hotspur’s reluctance forced United to switch their focus on alternatives and open talks with Atalanta for their 20-year-old striker.

As per reports going on in the media, Man Utd have agreed terms worth £93.5m in and fee and wages to sign Hojlund.

After initially showing reluctance to spend too much on a player with experience of just one full season in Europe’s top five leagues and 87 senior appearances to his name, the English giants have decided to bite the bullet and commit to paying an initial £64m plus up to £8m in add-ons.

As far as the personal terms are concerned, the youngster has agreed a deal that will make him earn 5 million euros per season, £21.5m in the next five years. He will multiple his wages by eight times (CorSera).

Amid interest from Paris Saint-Germain, United accelerated their plans to thrash out a deal with the Bergamo-based outfit, having already reached a full agreement over personal terms with the Denmark international. He will sign a five-year deal with an option for a further year.

As per Fabrizio Romano, United are now prepared to book medical for their new arrival, who managed 16 goals and 7 sevens in all competitions during the 2022/23 campaign.

The Serie A club, meanwhile, have already announced the signing of his supposed replacement: El Bilal Touré.

On Saturday evening, Gian Piero Gasperini’s team selection for his side’s pre-season friendly against Bournemouth suggested Hojlund’s exit is imminent, as the Italian coach decided to not hand his 6′ 3″ forward any minutes in the outing.
