Man United lodge bid to sign £49m ‘monster’, he’d be lеthal alongside Mason Mount

Manchester United wasted no time in attempting to boost other parts of the team after ultimately agreeing on a £60 million fee for Mason Mount.

What is the most recent Manchester United transfer rumor?

Unsurprisingly, the Red Devils are looking to spend big this summer, and they have now made a bid to capture Rasmus Hojlund from Serie A club Atalanta.

According to Corriere Dello Sport, an offer of €35 million (£30 million) was turned down.

Instead, it appears that United will have to pay €45 million plus €12 million in bonuses (£39 million + £10 million) to secure the player.

It’s unknown whether Erik ten Hag’s soldiers will make another bid.

Who stands to benefit from Hojlund’s arrival at Manchester United?

Hojlund, who has been compared to fellow Norwegian forward Erling Haaland, would be a fantastic addition to the United frontline.

Despite being only 20 years old, the teenager scored 16 goals in 42 club appearances last season, nine of them came in Serie A.

Such a tally in league football may not set off alarm bells at Old Trafford, but Manchester United might benefit from investing in future prospects.

They’ve been there and done it before with elderly forwards like Edinson Cavani, Radamel Falcao, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, and even Cristiano Ronaldo bringing little success to the club.

Instead, it’s time to think about the future, and by pairing Hojlund – labeled a “monster in the making” by scout Jacek Kulig – with the incoming Mount, the club’s trophy-laden years could return sooner than later.

Mount has signed a tremendous offensive talent. The England international may have only contributed nine goals last season, but he was on fire in 2021/22, tallying 13 goals and 16 assists in 53 appearances.

Such a record, if reproduced in the north west, would undoubtedly benefit the aspiring Hojlund.

Ademola Lookman, a former Premier League player, was Atalanta’s top assister last season with eight.

Throughout the league season, the energetic winger averaged 1.3 critical passes per game and generated 10 good opportunities. That is a great tally, but it also implies that if Hojlund had been flanked by a stronger chance creator, he would have no sure scored more goals.

That’s where Mount comes in, with the Chelsea offensive midfielder providing 1.8 crucial passes per match last season and 2.4 critical passes with 13 major chances generated in 2020/21.

This is a man who typically contributes a lot of creativity to the team he plays for, and having a raging striker like Hojlund ahead of him would undoubtedly assist both of them.

United scored the fewest goals (58) among the top six last season. On that note, they may have been fortunate to secure a top-fourth spot. It just goes to illustrate why they need players like Hojlund and Mount on their team.

A partnership of this kind might propel Ten Hag’s team to levels of performance not seen since the Dutchman’s arrival in the Premier League.
