Erik ten Hag gives encouraging news after close discussions with Atalanta boss

Gian Piero Gasperini, the head coach of Atalanta, has declined to provide Manchester United with a specific deadline for submitting an offer to purchase Rasmus Hojlund.

The manager of this team said that no matter how late in the transfer window lucrative bids may emerge for their striker, the club will have no choice but to consider accepting them.

United had already started discussions with Hojlund about a prospective deal after abandoning their pursuit of Tottenham Hotspur’s Harry Kane. This decision was made after United came to the realization that Spurs would not sell the England captain to a Premier League competitor. Hojlund is a striker who has played for both United and Hoffenheim.

While all is going on, the Reds have already acquired Mason Mount, and they are getting closer to making a deal for Andre Onana. However, the signing of a center forward is considered to be the most essential recruitment move for United this summer.

Although Manchester United have not yet presented a formal offer, it has been reported that Hojlund has expressed interest in moving to Old Trafford. The head coach of Atalanta, Gasperini, has refrained from establishing a cut-off date for the attacker who is 20 years old and who scored 16 goals during the previous season.

According to Italy24, he was quoted as saying, “Hojlund? Even if we decide on a date, like the 15th of August, the transfer market will not be finished. In the event that a [irresistible] offer is made, the club or the player will make a decision later.

“Date? I would say July 31 but realistically there is no possibility of placing it; even Hojlund was like this last year; everything is random. I would put July 31 but realistically there is no possibility of putting it.

The day that marks the end of the summer enrollment period and the beginning of the fall semester is September 1 this year.

Randal Kolo Muani, who is apparently being pursued by Paris Saint-Germain, is also of interest to United, who have an interest in the player. This summer, Ten Hag is operating with an initial budget of £120 million, £55 million of which has already been spent on Mount.

Andre Onana would be brought in for a comparable amount, which would mean that player exits would be required in order to finance a transfer for a striker, specifically Hojlund.
