Manchester United are expected to push to sign a striker once a deal for Andre Onana is all complete.
The goalkeeper fills a need in the squad, and the next one is at striker, the biggest conundrum of all.
Rasmus Hojlund is high on the club’s agenda, and talks are ongoing, claims Fabrizio Romano.
Rasmus Hojlund to Manchester United
Fabrizio Romano reports Manchester United are talking to Atalanta, and learning more about what they want in terms of a fee.
He explained that Atalanta are not interested in taking any Manchester United players as part of a swap deal to reduce the price, instead holding out for a larger fee.
Romano said: “It’s better to have a direct conversation, as they are doing, trying to make a bid at the right moment.

“Hojlund to Manchester United is absolutely on as a deal, but still not in advanced stages.”
Rasmus Hojlund has qualities Manchester United want
Rasmus Hojlund, 20, is one of the most coveted young strikers in Europe and Manchester United will hope to develop him into a superstar.
The move already has Christian Eriksen’s seal of approval, The Mail report, and a deal will become Manchester United’s top focus once the Onana deal goes through.
United will bid ‘at the right moment’ claims Romano, and now with a fee finalised for Onana, the club’s budget is clearer, with money still expected from player sales to add in.
