Revealed: The fee Man United could now pay to finalise Hojlund signing - sources

Atalanta want a fee of €60million (around £52million) in order to part with Man United target Rasmus Hojlund this summer, sources have told Football Insider.

This site revealed on Tuesday (30 May) that the Red Devils are keen on signing the 20-year-old in the upcoming transfer window.

It is believed that Hojlund is seen as an alternative to high-value striker targets Harry Kane and Victor Osimhen.

He is regarded as one of the best young strikers in world football and has wowed Man United scouts throughout the 2022-23 campaign.

A well-placed source has told Football Insider that Old Trafford chiefs see Hojlund as a player with “huge” potential as they look to refresh their strikeforce.

The Denmark international notched 15 goals across 41 appearances in all competitions in 2022-23, despite starting in just 26 of those outings.

Ex-FC Copenhagen star Hojlund burst onto the scene for his country in March, scoring five goals across two Euro 2024 qualifiers against Finland and Kazakhstan.

He only joined Atalanta from Austrian outfit Sturm Graz last summer (2022), with the Italian side paying a reported fee of just under £15million for his services.

It is believed the Bergamo club are looking to make a profit of more than £35million if Hojlund is to move on in the off-season.

Man United are turning attention to their summer business ahead of the season-ending FA Cup final clash against Man City on Saturday (3 June).

Football Insider revealed on Tuesday (30 May) that they are happy to let in-demand forward Anthony Martial leave the club.

Manager Erik ten Hag has already confirmed he is planning to add another goalscorer in the summer window.
