Manchester United and Atlanta are still far apart in their valuation of Rasmua Hojlund. The Red Devils are hoping to snap him up for around £35million while the Italian side are refusing to budge on anything less than £60m.
As a result, Man Utd have renewed their interest in Randal Kolo Muani of Eintracht Frankfurt. And according to GiveMeSport, their interest is “growing” though his £85m asking price may cause even more problems.
“Now there is United’s interest that is growing though, and now PSG join them – but will either of them front the cash?
“United are not very well positioned to do it. If they can’t afford Hojlund in a straightforward manner, then it’s not apparent why they would be able to reach Kolo Muani.
“The rise of this player’s profile is astonishing. He was a free transfer when he joined Frankfurt, and now he’s being talked about as a player worth over £85m. I do think he would be a better source of goals for United next season, but it’s all about how they can make the numbers work if this is to get off the ground.
“From a Man Utd point of view, it looks good for United to be seen in contact with another striker apart from Hojlund. It’ll make Atalanta think they genuinely might shop elsewhere. But I’m not wholly convinced.”
