At the moment, the 20–year-old earns €600k annually, but if he was to sign for the Red Devils it will 7-8 times the amount.

But there may be an issue as Paris Saint-Germain have joined the race.

David Ornstein reported that the Ligue 1 champions are keen on the youngster ahead of the new season.

Hojlund, who scored 10 goals in 34 appearances for Atalanta last season, could potentially be the subject of a bidding war between the clubs.

Erik ten Hag wants to bring in Hojlund after clinching a move for Andre Onana from Inter.

He sees the Denmark international as a versatile attacker who can play anyway along the frontline.

After his addition, in an ideal world, Ten Hag would like a central midfielder and then a powerhouse No.9. Tottenham star Harry Kane has been linked, but his current side are not happy with the idea of selling to a Premier League rival.

The side are in need of a striker. The best candidate, Anthony Martial, can't stay fit and may be sold. Marcus Rashford prefers to play off the left.

The trouble is the budget - the manager is having to deal with lesser funds than normal, with the takeover continuing to rumble on in the background.

It is thought that a conclusion won’t be reached until into the new season.
