After signing Mason Mount and with the deal for the goalkeeper Andre Onana almost sealed, Ten Hag is getting ready to complete his third signing this season. This time, the Dutchman is focused on adding a new striker to reinforce the forward line of the team with youngness, quality and versatility.

Manchester United coach has identified that profile in the Danish player Rasmus Hojlund, from Atalanta. The 20-year-old striker is considered to have a huge scope for improvement, and his 1,90 meters of height would grant Ten Hag having a big man in the front of the attack, to hold the ball and replace the role of Weghorst last season.

In this sense, negotiations with Atalanta have already started and Manchester United are said to have rejected two offers, the first of £30 million, and another of around £40 million. At this point, Manchester United could be thinking about including a player in the deal to reduce the price, with Amad Diallo and Mason Greenwood as potential candidates.

Atalanta has asked for the player but Ten Hag doesn’t agree at all

According to SkySports, in the last few hours Manchester United are exploring the possibility of sending Amad on loan to Atalanta as part of the Rasmus Hojlund deal, but Ten Hag wants to see him in pre-season before any decision is made, while Amad's desire is staying at Old Trafford.  

Meanwhile, Manchester United could have already come to an agreement with Hojlund over a five-year deal, with the youngster keen to make the move to Old Trafford during the summer market which must push the Red Devils to increase their offer or including Amad in the transfer to convince Atalanta in the next few days.
