Ramus Hojlund has completed his medical and signed a five-year contract, with the option of an extra year to become Manchester United’s third high-profile signing of the summer.
The Red Devils plan to announce the Denmark international’s arrival from Atalanta on Saturday afternoon, when they’ll face RC Lens in a friendly.
And Hojlund isn’t the only player who has completed his move to Manchester this week.
Manchester United complete signing of Harry Amass
The Premier League giants are not just focused on strengthening their first-team and have added a new talent to their academy.
Harry Amass, who is considered a top talent among his age group in English football, has signed a four-year deal with United.
It’s understood Watford were very determined to keep hold of the highly-rated full-back and even offered him a professional contract beyond his scholarship deal. The England U16 international was among the stand-out performers for the Hornets against Everton and Arsenal in last campaign’s FA Youth Cup.
While Amass is indeed joining the likes of Mason Mount, Andre Onana and Hojlund this summer, he’s unlikely to link up with any of them anytime soon. For now, the plan, for him, is to join United’s youth setup.
However, United are also expected to make a move for another signing for the senior team. According to Fabrizio Romano, the Old Trafford outfit are expected to open ‘formal’ talks with Fiorentina for the signing of Sofyan Amrabat ‘soon’.
The Moroccan midfielder hasn’t been called up for the upcoming Fiorentina friendly against Newcastle, and it’s believed he’s very keen to join United. Things could accelerate following Fred and Donny van de Beek’s exit. The Italian transfer expert says both midfielders are very close to departing Carrington.
