Atalanta boss makes Rasmus Hojlund transfer admission after Manchester United talks

Gian Piero Gasperini, the head coach of Atalanta, has declined to specify a specific deadline for Manchester United to submit an offer for Rasmus Hojlund. The manager acknowledged that his club would need to consider attractive offers for their striker, regardless of how late they might arrive during the transfer window. 

United have already engaged in discussions with Hojlund regarding a potential transfer, having abandoned their pursuit of Harry Kane from Tottenham Hotspur, as they concluded that Spurs would not sell their captain to a Premier League competitor.

Meanwhile, United have already signed Mason Mount and are getting closer to finalizing a deal for Andre Onana. However, acquiring a center-forward is seen as the most crucial addition for United this summer.

Hojlund is reportedly interested in a move to Old Trafford, although United has not yet formally presented a bid. Gasperini, the Atalanta boss, has chosen not to establish a specific date by which the 20-year-old attacker, who scored 16 goals last season, should make a decision.

As reported by Italy24, he said: “Hojlund? Even if we fix a date, put August 15, the transfer market isn’t over. If an [irresistible] offer arrives, the club, the player, decides later.

“Date? I would put July 31 but realistically there is no possibility of putting it, even Hojlund was like this last year, everything is random.”

The summer transfer deadline day is scheduled for September 1 this year.

In addition to Rasmus Hojlund, Manchester United is also interested in Randal Kolo Muani, who is said to be monitored by Paris Saint-Germain. Their head coach, Ten Hag, has an initial budget of £120 million for this summer’s transfers, out of which £55 million has already been used to acquire Mason Mount.

If Andre Onana’s transfer goes through at a similar cost, it would require player departures to finance the signing of a striker, specifically Hojlund.
