Rasmus Hojlund is claimed to have finished his physical and signed a five-year contract with Man United, with a 12-month extension option.

Earlier this week, it was thought that the Danish international would make his debut against Lens this weekend, but the transfer was finally postponed due to his later-than-expected arrival in Manchester.

However, the agreement has been reached, and he will be presented to the Old Trafford audience ahead of the match against Lens, according to transfer specialist Fabrizio Romano.

The 20-year-old might theoretically be available for Manchester United’s friendly against Athletic Bilbao in Dublin on Sunday, though head coach Erik Ten Hag has not said whether he will use him.

Hojlund has been extensively connected with a summer move to the Red Devils, having been designated as the club’s top target in the last third of the field.

Tottenham Hotspur’s Harry Kane and Napoli’s Victor Osimhen were also mentioned as potential targets, but it quickly became evident that Manchester United would not be strong competitors for either.

Hojlund might make his competitive debut for the Red Devils on August 14 against Wolverhampton Wanderers in the 2023-24 Premier League.

The deal to bring the forward to Manchester United is thought to be worth around €70 million (£60.1 million), with Atalanta agreeing to lower their asking price during the final phases of the discussions.

The youngster joined Atalanta from Sturm Graz last year, and in 34 appearances in Italian football last season, he scored 10 goals and registered four assists.

According to a recent source, Ten Hag feels the teenager is capable of operating across the attack and does not necessarily see him as a center-forward.

Man United would thus be in the market for another attacker before the end of the transfer window, albeit the club will have to release undesired players first.

Harry Maguire, Fred, and Donny van de Beek are among those connected with departures, while Fiorentina’s Sofyan Amrabat is rumored to be the club’s fourth summer signing.
