According to Miguel Angel de Miguel Casas of Fichajes, the Red Devils are willing to pay 60 million euros to sign Rasmus Hojlund from Atalanta
Man United’s attack needs to be strengthened before the new season because they only have Anthony Martial as the only true striker. But the French star scored only 6 goals in 21 games and was sidelined for half the season due to injury.
The Red Devils have been linked with many outstanding strikers. However, they were forced to ignore two expensive names, Harry Kane of Tottenham and Victor Osimhen of Napoli to recruit Rasmus Hojlund from Atalanta . The 20-year-old scored 10 goals and provided four assists in 34 games last season and has a bright future. The Denmark international scored 15 goals, provided 3 assists in 27 matches for the U19 team and scored 5 goals in 32 games for the national team.
Hojlund has impressive goalscoring ability, quick feet and excellent off-ball mobility, so it’s easy to see why United would be interested in him. Erik ten Hag is said to be a fan of Hojlund and has called him directly in an attempt to recruit a player likened to Haaland 2.0.
Hojlund was signed by Atalanta for 17.2 million euros but was valued at more than £50 million with four years left on his contract at the Stadio Atleti Azzurri d’Italia. This number is not small, but Man United is willing to approve spending to please Ten Hag .
