Hojlund to have Man Utd medical today ahead of £72m deal

Rasmus Hojlund is expected to arrive in the UK on Tuesday ahead of a medical with Manchester United.

The Atalanta striker will then 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 week.

United hope to have the deal formalised in time for him to play some part in one of the team's remaining pre-season fixtures. They have two games this weekend, against Lens on Saturday and Athletic Bilbao on Sunday.
