Rasmus Hojlund completes medical ahead of £72m Manchester United move

Rasmus Hojlund has completed his medical with Manchester United ahead of a £72m move from ATALANTA AND could be unveiled during their friendly with Lens on Saturday.

The Atalanta striker is expected to sign a five-year contract with the option of a further 12 months.

The deal for Hojlund is worth an initial £64m, plus £8m in performance-related add-ons. Atalanta went into negotiations wanting £77m guaranteed.

A formal announcement of his signing could come this weekend, with a chance the 20-year-old may be presented during their friendly against Lens.

United also face Athletic Bilbao on Sunday – which may give him enough time to feature in their final pre-season game.

As previously reported by Sky Sports News, the forward’s destination of choice has been Old Trafford, so there was no concern over PSG’s interest in the Denmark international.

The Premier League side were handed a boost on Saturday when Atalanta signed Almeria forward El Bilal Toure, while Hojlund was left out of the squad that played Bournemouth in a pre-season friendly.

United’s incoming business is now largely done, and any more arrivals are likely to depend on departures.

There is interest in the likes of Harry Maguire, Scott McTominay, Fred and Donny van de Beek.

If there are exits, United are understood to be ready to go into the market to replace them.

Strong interest remains in Fiorentina midfielder Sofyan Amrabat.
