Man United to submit opening offer for chief striker target next week

Premier League giants Manchester United are preparing an imminent opening bid for the club’s chief attacking target, according to reports.

The player in question? Rasmus Hojlund.

For those not familiar with his talents, frontman Hojlund is fresh off something of a breakout campaign.

Across stints in Italy and Austria, the 20-year-old took to the pitch on 42 occasions, notching an eye-catching 23 direct goal contributions along the way.

It was his exploits on the international stage, though, which saw clubs across the continent truly begin to stand up and take notice.

This came as, back in March, Hojlund took full advantage of his first competitive start for Denmark by way of a hat-trick versus Finland.

On the lookout for an answer to their long-term woes at centre-forward, it has therefore come as little surprise to hear of the aforementioned Manchester United being tipped as a potential landing spot for Hojlund this summer.

And, if the latest word stemming from the media on Sunday is anything to go by, then the Red Devils, it would appear, are ready to imminently step up their pursuit.

Having already bagged the club’s chief goalkeeper and midfield targets with a view to next season, the powers that be at Old Trafford are ready to move forward with a decisive move for Hojlund, too.

As per transfer expert Fabrizio Romano:

‘Manchester United are now set to submit first official bid for Rasmus Højlund next week.’

French champions Paris Saint-Germain are also keenly interested in the Dane, but, having already agreed to the personal terms of a contract in Manchester, Hojlund himself appears to favour a move to the Premier League.
