Atalanta boss fears he could lose Rasmus Hojlund to Man Utd and calls £86m transfer target best young talent in Europe

ATALANTA boss Gian Piero Gasperini fears he could lose Rasmus Hojlund amid interest from Manchester United.

The Red Devils have made the youngster their number one striker target this summer.

Hojlund is believed to be keen on the transfer and has agreed personal terms with the club.

United are set to make an opening bid while Paris Saint-Germain are also considering a move.

Atalanta reportedly value Hojlund at £86million which is beyond what United are prepared to pay.

Gasperini hopes the club’s asking price will deter interest as he believes the Dane is one of the best young talents in Europe.

He told Sky Sports Italia: “If he stays? I don’t know, honestly I don’t know, the transfer market is unpredictable.

“I don’t know the value of the player, he can be worth even €100million, but the market value is uncertain.

“I hope the club will value Højlund around €80m, €90m or €100m fee.

“There are strong players who struggle to find a place and other young players who reach certain figures, Hojlund is among the very best emerging players in Europe.”


Atalanta have also made it clear they will not accept a player plus cash offer for Hojlund.

Erik ten Hag has other targets in mind if United are priced out of a deal for Hojlund, including the likes of Eintracht Frankfurt’s Randal Kolo Muani and Joao Felix.
