Manchester United have finally signed a new striker.
“Rasmus Højlund has signed a contract with the club after successfully completing a medical,” Italian outlet Football Italia reported on Thursday.
Signing a striker has been one of United’s top targets this summer. United manager Eric den Haag has been keen to bring in a striker to form a formidable frontline alongside Marcus Rashford.
One of the most likely candidates is Hoilearn. Despite his young age, Hoilearn proved his potential last season, scoring 16 goals and providing seven assists in 42 games. 안전놀이터
The analysis is that he fits Ten Haag’s style of play. The Dutchman has a knack for developing young players since his days at Ajax and was expected to turn Hojbjerg into one of the best players in the world.
Negotiations were not easy. He was contracted to Atalanta until 2027. Atalanta were unwilling to let the forward leave the club.
They were determined to hold onto him. United made two bids of €50 million and €60 million, both of which were rejected.
The negotiations ultimately ended in Atalanta’s favor. “United have agreed to a €75 million base transfer fee plus a €10 million bonus,” transfer market expert Fabrizio Romano reported.
Details of the terms of the deal were also revealed. According to the report, United have reached a personal agreement with Hoi Lun on a five-year contract with an option for a one-year extension.
Now all that remains is for the official announcement. Several media outlets had expected United to announce the signing of Hoi Lun in a friendly against Reims on May 5.
