On Saturday, Fabrizio Romano reported that the Red Devils have agreed to pay Atalanta roughly €70 million (£60 million) plus add-ons to sign Hojlund, who joined the Serie A club for £14.7 million last summer.
Meanwhile, David Ornstein reports that United will pay €75 million plus €10 million in add-ons.
Despite the fact that the 20-year-old attacker has a lot of potential, Atalanta will be laughing all the way to the bank with such a quick profit.
Romano has now added that the two clubs are planning to “exchange documents” in the next day or two, with Hojlund ready to sign a five-year contract with a one-year extension option.
“Manchester United will start preparing documents and paperwork today in order to get Rasmus Hojlund’s deal signed and sealed early next week,” Romano said on Sunday morning.
“Hojlund has already spoken to Erik ten Hag more than three times, and he is ready to sign until June 2028, with an option to extend until 2029.”
United manager Erik ten Hag will be pleased with his summer activities thus far.
He has signed a new striker, goalie, and attacking midfielder, which is exactly what he needed to strengthen his roster before the transfer window opened.
Despite apparently entering the transfer window with a budget of £100 million, the Red Devils are not finished yet.
They are still interested in Fiorentina and Morocco midfielder Amrabat, who helped his country reach the World Cup semi-finals in 2022.
