Atalanta open to re-signing Amad Diallo as part of Rasmus Hojlund’s Man Utd transfer

Atalanta are open to re-signing Manchester United forward Amad Diallo in a part-exchange deal for Rasmus Hojlund this summer, Tuttomercatoweb claim.

The Red Devils have identified Hojlund as their priority striker target, and they are prepared to make an opening offer in the region of £50 million for his services.

However, this may not be sufficient as Atalanta reportedly value him at £85m.

Tuttomercatoweb now report that Atalanta would welcome a player-plus-cash deal for Hojlund. The Serie A outfit are interested in re-signing Amad as part of the move.

Man Utd could consider a part-exchange deal for Hojlund

United boss Erik ten Hag has earmarked Hojlund as his number one striker target. The club are now considering an approach, but it won’t be easy to sign him.

Atalanta are aware of the immense potential of the 20-year-old, and they appear reluctant to part ways with him unless they receive a significant transfer fee.

However, their interest in Amad could help lower the price. The Ivorian has yet to become a United regular, and he could be used as a makeweight in the deal.

Amad was signed from Atalanta for an initial £18m two-and-a-half years ago, but he has made just nine appearances. He spent last season on loan at Sunderland.

He could be involved in pre-season for the Red Devils, but his chances of starting regularly are very less due to the heavy competition for places on the right wing.

United currently have Antony, Jadon Sancho, Anthony Elanga and Facundo Pellistri for the role.

We won’t be surprised if Amad is offered as part of the deal for Hojlund. In doing so, the Red Devils could reduce the fee to an affordable level as the budget is limited.
