Atalanta to Squeeze Every Penny from Manchester United

Rasmus Hojlund dreams of joining Manchester United, his boyhood club, but Atalanta will look to get compensated more than properly for their hotshot. The striker has an agreement in principle with the Red Devils, where he’ll earn €4.5M per year, Alfredo Pedullà informs.

Instead, La Dea has no plans to facilitate his transfer and demands a hefty sum. They value him as much as Juventus spent to acquire Dusan Vlahovic last January. The Bianconeri shelled out €70M plus €10M add-ons. The Serb was two years older at the time.

Manchester United coach Erik Ten Hag considers Hojlund the perfect fit for his style of football. The two clubs will need to negotiate, but a possible outcome is a €65M fee plus €9/10M add-ons. This week should be pivotal for the future of the Dane, the transfer market expert adds.

Coach Gian Piero Gasperini, who wishes to come to a resolution sooner rather than later, has been progressively more realistic in his statements on the matter.

Manchester United are firmly in the lead in the race for Hojlund at this stage. PSG inquired about his price tag as well, but they didn’t get past that for now.
