According to numerous reports in Italy and England, an agreement has apparently been made with Atalanta over the transfer fee for Rasmus Hojlund, and Manchester United will now finally give Erik ten Hag a new number nine.

The Dutch manager’s top task going into the summer was giving a team that last season scored fewer league goals than up to seven Premier League teams a goal threat.

For the upcoming season, Harry Kane was expected to lead the Red Devils’ offence, but Tottenham Hotspur’s resistance compelled United to shift their attention to alternatives and begin negotiations with Atalanta for their 20-year-old striker.

According to media sources, Man Utd and Hojlund have reached an agreement for a fee and salary of £93.5 million.

The English giants have opted to bite the bullet and commit to paying an initial £64m plus up to £8m in add-ons for a player who has experience of just one complete season in Europe’s top five leagues and 87 professional matches to his record.

In terms of compensation, the teenager has reached an agreement that will pay him 5 million euros per season, or £21.5 million over the course of the next five years. He’ll increase his pay by an eightfold multiple (CorSera).

After fully agreeing on all personal conditions with the Danish international, United hastened their intentions to negotiate a deal with the Bergamo-based team in the face of interest from Paris Saint-Germain. He will agree to a five-year contract with a one-year option.

According to Fabrizio Romano, United is now prepared to schedule a medical appointment for their new player, who scored 16 goals and had seven assists across all competitions in the 2022–23 season.

El Bilal Touré has already been signed by the Serie A team as his projected replacement.

Gian Piero Gasperini chose not to play his 6′ 3″ striker in the preseason friendly against Bournemouth on Saturday night, which gave the impression that Hojlund’s departure is close at hand.
