Exciting times are ahead for Manchester United as Rasmus Hojlund has reportedly completed his medical with the club and is set to officially sign his contract with the Red Devils on Wednesday. The 20-year-old forward from Denmark has been on the radar of the 20-time English champions, who reached a full agreement with Atalanta BC over the weekend.
Hoijlund’s absence from Atalanta’s pre-season friendly with Bournemouth fueled rumors of an imminent move to Old Trafford. The clubs have come to an agreement on the overall package worth €70 million, showing willingness to compromise on their initial valuations.
According to renowned transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, Hojlund successfully underwent medical examinations with Manchester United on Tuesday, and he also fulfilled the first part of his media duties with the club. The official signing is expected to take place on Wednesday, with an announcement from Erik ten Hag’s side following shortly after.
The talented Dane is likely to start training with his new teammates at Carrington before the week’s end, preparing for potential involvement in friendlies against Lens or Athletic Bilbao over the weekend. If all goes well and he proves his fitness, fans may see him make his competitive debut in Manchester United’s 2023-24 Premier League opener against Wolverhampton Wanderers on August 14.
Hojlund will be the third summer signing for Manchester United, joining Mason Mount and Andre Onana at Old Trafford during this transfer window. While Harry Kane and Victor Osimhen were also linked with the club, it seems the focus has now shifted to bolstering the squad with Hojlund’s arrival.
As the transfer window continues, Manchester United remains open to further additions, with Fiorentina’s Sofyan Amrabat heavily linked to a move to Old Trafford. However, potential signings could depend on departures, as players like Scott McTominay, Fred, Donny van de Beek, and Harry Maguire have also been linked with moves away from the club. Exciting times lie ahead for the Red Devils as they gear up for the upcoming season!
