The addition of strikers is becoming Man Utd’s top priority in this summer’s transfer window.
They borrowed Wout Weghorst in January, but the Dutchman failed to live up to expectations. Meanwhile, Anthony Martial has shown inconsistent performance after a season in which he was frequently plagued with injuries.
Therefore, coach Erik ten Hag has decided to bring to Old Trafford a new striker who can help Marcus Rashford shoulder the responsibility of scoring.
Man Utd have their eyes on quite a few quality names like Harry Kane or Victor Osimhen, but limited budget forces them to look for a cheaper target and so Rasmus Hojlund has been put on the radar.
The 20-year-old has just spent an impressive season with Atalanta, proving himself to be one of the continent’s potential strikers.
According to Football Insider, Man Utd has promoted this deal and reached a personal agreement with Hojlund. The next step, maybe they will send an offer to Atalanta to ask to buy the Danish star. Many rumors suggest that Man Utd wants to bring Hojlund to Old Trafford for a fee of £ 50 million.
