According to journalist Fabrizio Romano, Manchester United have identified Atalanta’s Rasmus Hojlund as their top target for the position. With Mason Mount already secured from Chelsea, United are now turning their attention towards capturing the talented forward.
While the pursuit of Rasmus Hojlund takes shape, Manchester United are currently engrossed in discussions with Inter Milan over goalkeeper Andre Onana.
Talks are reportedly advancing well, with an agreement potentially within reach before the weekend. Once this deal is sealed, United will be in a stronger position to intensify their efforts to secure Hojlund’s services.
Excitement is building among Manchester United fans as Rasmus Hojlund has already given his approval to join the club. The Danish striker, who happens to be a lifelong United supporter, expressed his delight at the prospect of donning the iconic red jersey in a recent interview. With the player showing a genuine desire to make the switch to Old Trafford, the anticipation for a potential deal grows.
While the Red Devils are keen on securing Hojlund’s signature, no official transfer offer has been made as of yet, as per Romano’s latest information. It is expected that negotiations with Atalanta will commence once the deal for Onana is finalised. United’s interest in the young striker is certainly intriguing, considering his modest goal tally of nine for Atalanta last season. However, his immense potential has earned him comparisons to none other than the sensational Erling Haaland.
