Man United need to pay €60m for next signing after Onana, promise already made

Manchester United is set to spend approximately €60 million to secure the services of Rasmus Hojlund from Atalanta, as reported by Gazzetta dello Sport (page 16).

In the meantime, the Red Devils are on the brink of signing Andre Onana from Inter Milan, with an initial fee of €50 million agreed upon for the former Ajax goalkeeper.

Following Onana’s arrival, Manchester United’s focus will shift to acquiring a new center-forward, with Hojlund being the top target for manager Erik ten Hag.

Recent reports suggest that Atalanta is not in any hurry to part ways with their prized asset, and United will likely need to offer a sum close to €60 million to even consider convincing them to consider a transfer.

To potentially fill the void left by Hojlund, El Bilal Traore of Almeria has reached a personal agreement with Atalanta. However, the La Liga team is not willing to sell him at a low price, demanding €40 million for the sale of the Mali international.

Hojlund, a 20-year-old talent, has shown promise and potential to become an elite striker. In the 2022-23 season, he impressed with 16 goals and 7 assists for Sturm Graz and Atalanta, with 14 of those goal contributions coming from his time at Atalanta.

The Danish striker possesses physical strength, aerial ability, and speed on the counterattack, making him a promising prospect. He is left-footed and has drawn comparisons to Erling Haaland due to his playing style.

To ensure Hojlund’s involvement in the club’s preseason preparations, Manchester United will need to secure the signing as soon as possible. The young talent has already expressed a willingness to move to United, and both parties hope to finalize the deal soon.

Erik ten Hag has recently received additional financial backing from the Glazers to pursue a new striker for the team.
