Man Utd make first verbal offer for Hojlund

Manchester United have made an opening verbal offer to sign Atalanta striker Rasmus Hojlund this summer.

The Red Devils are keen on bolstering the centre-forward department and they have identified Hojlund as the main target.

The club have made a verbal proposal of £50m plus £10m in add-ons for him, but Atalanta are expected to turn down the offer.

The Serie A outfit want at least £70m as a fixed fee for the striker with a further £10m in the form of performance add-ons.

Despite the stance, United remain optimistic that they can strike an agreement with the Bergamo outfit in the coming days.

Atalanta have already reached an agreement to sign a new striker. Almeria's El Bilal Traore will join them by the end of the month.

The Serie A outfit are aware that Hojlund has agreed personal terms, and they could eventually admit defeat in keeping him.

Hojlund has accepted a five-year contract with United with the option for another 12 months. He could earn £75,000-a-week.
