Manchester United are chasing Atalanta striker Rasmus Hojlund and have already won him over.
Hojlund’s heart is set on a move to Old Trafford, and it certainly helps that he is going to receive a boost in salary if he joins up.
While an incredible career opportunity awaits the Dane, a major wage increase further sweetens the deal.
Rasmus Hojlund salary increase
Italian reporter Alfredo Pedulla reports that on a yearly basis, Rasmus Hojlund earns 600,000 Euros.
He claims, “He has a total deal with Manchester United for 7-8 times the amount.”
This is a low current wage of around £10,000 per week, which would increase to £70,000 or £80,000 per week.
MORE UNITED STORIES
Teamtalk previously reported Hojlund earned around £10,000 per week on his current deal.
The proposed increase at Manchester United is not unreasonable, where he would still be among the lowest earners. The 20-year-old would be challenged to perform and show he deserves to earn even more.
Ten Hag a fan
Pedulla adds manager Erik ten Hag is convinced by Hojlund and is a big fan, believing he would be perfect for his system.
Now it is just up to Manchester United to agree a few with Atalanta. That’s the hard part, but one which is do-able, providing the Italian side are not unreasonable.
