Manchester United remain Rasmus Hojlund’s preference despite PSG approach

As I revealed ten days ago, PSG are also interested in Rasmus Hojlund. They are having conversations but they haven’t sent a bid - they are very well informed on his situation, and this is why Manchester United want to act fast and should make an opening bid for the striker soon. United are ahead in the race because they have an agreement with Hojlund on personal terms, he’s said yes to their contract proposal.

Details on the bid will arrive once the bid will be submitted; for sure, Man United want to send the proposal soon and they want to accelerate as PSG are still interested and speaking to the player’s camp. The priority for Hojlund is very clear: Manchester United. PSG would only bid if United will be slow in negotiations with Atalanta. At the moment, it’s between these two club and no other one.

United are the favourites, but they know they need to be fast to close this deal. The next week should be a really important stage to make the deal happen. So far there have only been conversations over possibly including players like Fred in the deal, but soon there will be an official bid.
