Hojlund set to undergo medical ahead of completing proposed Man United move


Rasmus Hojlund will travel to Manchester on Tuesday and undergo a medical before completing his proposed transfer to Manchester United.

United have an agreement with Atalanta to sign the 20-year-old striker in a deal worth €75million plus €10million in add-ons.

Personal terms are in place on a five-year deal contract with the option for a further 12 months.

Hojlund only joined Atalanta last summer, moving from Austrian side Sturm Graz. He registered eight goals and two assists in 31 Serie A games.

The Denmark international also scored five goals in two games during Euro 2024 qualifying in March, including a hat-trick against Finland.

He is set to be United’s third signing of the summer following the arrivals of Mason Mount and Andre Onana.

United are next in action against French club Lens at Old Trafford on Saturday.


What sort of player is Hojlund?

Analysis from The Athletic’s Carl Anka and Mark Carey.

Hojlund’s debut year in Serie A was promising but a little curious. Twenty of his 32 league appearances were as a starter, with manager Gian Piero Gasperini sometimes choosing to use him as a second-half ‘closer’ to run against tired opposition legs. (This is why his statistics may be a little skewed, as he played in shorter bursts compared to other strikers on this list.)

When Hojlund did enter the field of play, he gave a good account of himself. Ten Hag may have spoken of wanting an experienced striker who brings “no risk”, but the joy of Hojlund — who only left his teens in February — comes in pondering the player he might be in two to three seasons’ time.

“Potential” is the operative word when describing him.
