According to renowned football journalist Fabrizio Romano, Manchester United is reportedly setting their sights on Rasmus Hojlund, and they are preparing to make their first bid for the talented player. However, it seems that negotiations between Manchester United and Atlanta, Hojlund’s current club, might encounter a stumbling block due to the disparity in their valuation of the player.
Atlanta, who recognizes the potential and value of their star midfielder, has set a price tag of at least 65 to 70 million for the Danish international. This valuation reflects their desire to retain Hojlund’s services and receive fair compensation for his abilities on the pitch. However, reports suggest that Manchester United is likely to offer a bid lower than Atlanta’s asking price.
Manchester United’s decision to bid less than the requested amount may stem from various factors. The club might be looking to negotiate a better deal or capitalize on the current market conditions. Additionally, they could be considering the player’s contract situation and they have in the negotiations. While the specifics of Manchester United’s initial bid are yet to be disclosed, it is evident that the English club sees potential in Rasmus Hojlund and believes he could strengthen their forward options.
