Now, the British source claim that Man Utd are set to submit another cheap offer of around £40million for the Danish center forward.

It will not come as any surprise if the get yet another rejection from the Italian side.

Reports in the media have indicated different valuations but none has been as low as £40million.

Last month, The Daily Mail revealed that the Serie A side are looking for an enormous fee worth £86million to offload Hojlund this summer.

The 20-year-old boy is a talented striker but after netting just 10 goals in 34 appearances for Atalanta last term, there is no way he is worth around £86million.

The youngster compared himself to Man City’s Erling Haaland and stated (The Athletic):

“I can see the similarities: he’s fast, I’m also fast; he’s left-footed, I’m also left-footed; he’s strong and I’m strong, too. I hope that I can reach his level, but I’ll need to train very hard and be even more focused on the pitch.”

Italian sides are renowned for demanding mammoth fees for their star players and the Bergamo club will not sell Hojlund for cheap.

In your view, how big should Man Utd bid to sign Rasmus Hojlund?
