Rasmus Hojlund: Atalanta striker completes medical ahead of £72m Manchester United move | Football News

Rasmus Hojlund has successfully undergone a medical with Manchester United in preparation for his £72m transfer from Atalanta. He is expected to be officially unveiled during their friendly match against Lens on Saturday. The young striker is set to sign a five-year contract with the option to extend by another year. The initial deal is worth £64m, with an additional £8m in performance-related bonuses. Atalanta initially demanded £77m as a guaranteed fee. The club may announce his signing over the weekend, and there is a possibility that Hojlund will be presented during their friendly against Lens. United’s last preseason game is against Athletic Bilbao on Sunday, giving Hojlund enough time to possibly feature. His preferred destination has always been Old Trafford, so the interest from PSG did not concern the club. United received a boost when Atalanta signed El Bilal Toure from Almeria, while Hojlund was left out of their friendly against Bournemouth. The club’s incoming business is nearly complete, and any further arrivals will depend on departures. There is interest in players like Harry Maguire, Scott McTominay, Fred, and Donny van de Beek. If these players leave, United is ready to enter the market to find replacements. The club remains interested in Fiorentina midfielder Sofyan Amrabat.
