Report – Man Utd will bid £60.4m to sign £77.6m player


Manchester United have yet to add a priority signing of a striker and continue to chase Atalanta’s Rasmus Hojlund.

If reports in the media are anything to go by then the Red Devils are ready to make a big bid to sign the 20-year-old.

According to Calcio Mercato, the Bergamo club want a fee of 90 million euros for their prized asset i.e. around £77.6m.

On the other hand, Man Utd will bid close to 70 million euros (£60.4m), to hire the services of the Danish international.

Last night, The Daily Mail revealed the Old Trafford outfit are not prepared to offer more than £60m for the Danish international.

A similar story has been covered by The Telegraph, who also claim that United do not want to pay over £60m for the young center forward.

The 20-time English champions have a habit of paying over the odds to lure players. Last summer, they broke the bank for Martinez and Antony.

On the other hand, this summer, they managed to sign Mount and Onana after getting multiple offers rejected by Chelsea and Inter respectively.

Hojlund’s asking price of around £77.6m is unrealistic keeping in view that the ex Copenhagen forward only netted 9 goals in the entire Serie A campaign last term.

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

  1. I agree that Hojlund is a very promising player, but his goal contribution in a completely different league does leave some room for improvement. I do not think that United should be held to ransom, a maximum of 70 million euros and not more should be the way forward, anything more is a deal-breaker.
