Earlier this week, claims from the English press stated Manchester United will make an offer to sign Atalanta star Rasmus Højlund.

It was then followed by a report from Corriere di Bergamo, who stated the Red Devils are ‘willing to do anything’ to secure the striker’s services this summer.

As things stand, TuttoMercatoWeb state the Serie A side haven’t received an improved offer from Manchester United so far.

Erik ten Hag’s side have already seen a €35m bid for the 20-year-old turned down by the Italian club. It’s claimed the latter will need at least €50m fixed fee and an additional €15-30m as potential bonuses.

Meanwhile, Alfredo Pedullà says Manchester United will shift their focus to the Denmark international after completing the deal for Inter Milan goalkeeper André Onana.

He adds the Premier League side will ‘study’ making an improved bid to sign Højlund after Atalanta, who are asking for €60m [likely with bonuses], turned down their initial offer.

Another report from TuttoMercatoWeb state Manchester United’s Amad Diallo could be a ‘welcome counterpart to Atalanta’ as part of the deal for the Dane.

Diallo has played under Gian Piero Gasperini’s orders before arriving at Old Trafford in January 2021. He has been out on loan at Rangers and Sunderland in the last 18 months.

If Diallo were to arrive as part of the deal for Højlund, TMW doesn’t make it clear whether it would be on loan or permanent transfer.
