Manchester United prepare second bid for transfer target

Manchester United are looking to add a second summer signing to their ranks.

Manchester United are close to making their move for Chelsea and England midfielder Mason Mount official.

The Red Devils, though, are still in desperate need of improvements to their squad if they are to once again compete for a top-four place and do well in the Champions League.

The main area in need of improvement is centre-forward. Wout Weghorst has returned to Burnley, leaving an injury-prone, out of form Anthony Martial as their only striker heading into the new season.

A plethora of names have been linked to take up the striker role at Old Trafford this summer, one of which is Atalanta’s Rasmus Hojlund.

Manchester United have already seen an initial £31m bid knocked back by the Italian side and are now preparing to make a second £40m bid for the Danish forward, according to Goal.

The 20-year-old appeared in 42 matches for Atalanta last season in all competitions where he scored 16 goals and provided seven assists.
