Rasmus Hojlund rasmus-hojlund responds to PSG offer after bid to hijack move from MAN UNITED: United manager Erik ten Hag has made the Atalanta striker his top priority after being priced out of a move for Tottenham’s Harry Kane. EnoughInfo.com
The Premier League club has made an offer of €50 million plus €10 million in add-ons for the 20-year-old, with Atalanta reportedly holding out for a deal closer to €70 million.
PSG made their move on Thursday, submitting a €50 million deal that fell short of Atalanta’s asking price and United’s bid. Harry Kane Has Given Transfer Promise To Bayern Munich
The French champions are still waiting for a response from Atalanta, but they will not raise their offer and will walk away if it is refused.
In any case, their efforts to sign the 20-year-old look dismal, with L’Equipe saying that Hojlund, who is aware of PSG’s offer, still prefers a move to Old Trafford, even if his representatives are approached to discuss personal terms.

‘The only thing I can say is we do everything that’s in our power to get that done,’ ten Hag said.
‘If it was up to me, yeah, as soon as possible. The earlier the better because we have to integrate him in the team, the way of play.
‘In an ideal situation, he was already here but you do not always get ideal situations as a manager and you have to deal with the situation.’
