Atalanta turned down a cash and player deal from Manchester United for Rasmus Højlund
The Athletic claims that the Serie A team is pushing on a cash-only transaction.
After a deal for Harry Kane became impractical, the 20-year-old Danish striker has rapidly replaced Erik ten Hag as his top choice. However, due to FFP restrictions on United’s budget, Atalanta’s current expectations of £85 million are judged too high, which is why the club is looking to trade undisclosed players.
The article also makes mention of United’s ongoing interest in André Onana, the custodian for Inter Milan, although it is noted that work needs to be done on both the transfer money and the individual terms.
Additionally, it is said that both Italian clubs are aware of the joint agreements and are unwilling to make a financial concession to one at the expense of the other.
According to additional information in the article, United still has an interest in Fiorentina midfielder Sofyan Amrabat, although it is contingent on sales.
Players like Donny Van de Beek, Fred, Scott McTominay, and Anthony Elanga are said to be available.
