Erik Ten Hag has shown a lot of interest in strengthening the attack, the manager would consider that one more striker apart from Marcus Rashford would do the club a lot of good, to solve the goalscoring issue and that both strikers can make a good duo due to the amount of games Manchester United would be playing next season. 

Rasmus Hojlund is United's main target at the moment, with the signing of Andre Onana and the addition of Mason Mount on Wednesday, the club can look to sign their third signing of the summer, which is why the Red Devils have begun talks with Atalanta and they seem to be going very well. 

However, the Italian club value the striker at 86 million pounds, a price a little high for Manchester United, who would plan to start offering 50 million to be able to negotiate the transfer of Hojlund, if Ten Hag would happen to him what has been happening with the other signings, would have to resort to an alternative to realize the arrival of the Danish striker.

Ten Hag cannot afford to spend more money on signings due to the club's financial debt, he would first have to sell players to recover some cash and start increasing the offer for Hojlund if Atalanta decide to reject it due to the low price that United would be offering, also one of the options would be to give a player in exchange for only paying a minimal difference for the signing.  


Mason Greenwood as part of the negotiation

During the last hours Atalanta would have shown interest in the British Mason Greeenwood, United would be willing to transfer him as a loan and that would also add value to the offer that the Red Devils plan to make for Rasmus Hojlund, this could become an exchange of players, plus a possible economic value that Manchester United would have to end up paying if they want the striker to join as soon as possible.
