Man Utd optimistic of signing Hojlund in time for PL opener despite PSG bid

Manchester United remain confident of signing Atalanta striker Rasmus Hojlund, despite Paris St-Germain entering the race with a £43m bid.

Personal terms are no issue for the 20-year-old, who wants the switch to Old Trafford, although a gap in valuation still exists, with Atalanta seeking £59.8m (€70m) plus £8.5m (€10m) in add-ons.

Paris Saint-Germain have made a £43m (€50m) bid but United will not be swayed in their approach by interest in the player from other clubs. The club have shown in the deals for Mason Mount and Andre Onana they will not break their maximum budget for a player this summer.

Due to Financial Fair Play constraints and a determination to stick to their price points, United have so far been reluctant to go beyond a £51m (€60m) package.

They do, though, have a good relationship with the Serie A side after negotiations for Amad Diallo, and have been in constant contact with their counterparts over a compromise on the fee for Hojlund.
