Man United reach ‘agreement’ with £34m star sees them move closer to completing first summer signing, as Rashford given new price tag

Man Utd has historically been predicted to sign Brentford’s Ivan Toney, or another more seasoned goal scorer, to mentor Hojlund.

Zirkzee, who is only two years older than Hojlund at 23, appears to be Ratcliffe and Manchester United’s ready to entrust another young talent to guide their forward line.

Sources have confirmed to TEAMtalk that Man Utd chiefs are ‘very confident’ of securing Zirkzee’s services, while Bologna have been open about the fact he is almost guaranteed to depart this summer.

AC Milan have been trying to convince the former Bayern Munich man to complete a U-turn on his Man Utd preference and remain in Italy by joining them, but that now appears very unlikely.

In order to complete the signing, Man Utd will now enter talks with Bologna and look to match the attacker’s £34million release clause.

Although, it has been claimed that the transfer will cost Man Utd £46m in total due to agent fees and other costs involved.

While Zirkzee is close to joining Man Utd’s ranks, it remains to be seen what will happen with Rashford.

There have been conflicting reports about whether the winger wants to stay at his boyhood club or leave to kickstart his career elsewhere, with Paris Saint-Germain one rumoured destination.

Rashford has previously been valued at an incredible £120m by Man Utd, but separate reports state that his price tag has fallen due to his underwhelming form last term.

Man Utd will now accept an offer worth €90m (£76m) for their academy graduate.
