MANCHESTER UNITED face a bidding war for Rasmus Hojlund after PSG reportedly made a bid for the striker.
The Atalanta star is believed to be top of Erik ten Hag's transfer wishlist.
United have reportedly opened talks with the Italian side over a transfer, but refuse to match their £86million asking price.
Hojlund is understood to have agreed personal terms with the Red Devils.
But PSG want to hijack the move and have made Atalanta an offer of £43m for the highly-rated youngster, according to The Athletic.
And the Ligue Un champions are prepared to walk away if the offer is not accepted.

That is good news for United who also submitted a bid in the region of £43m, plus £8m in add-ons.
Atalanta previously rejected a player-plus-cash deal from United for their star striker, stating they are not interested in any player the Red Devils have offered up.
The Italians are believed to be holding out for at least £60m, though manager Gian Piero Gasperini hopes he goes for much more.
However United have been handed a boost with Atalanta said to be closing in on Hojlund's replacement.

Almeria have accepted a bid from the club for striker El Bilal Toure.
The development came amid Erik ten Hag's revelation that United are making progress in their striker search.
Ten Hag said: "We’re making progress but we know how it works and when we have him, we will tell you directly.
"The only thing I can say is we’ll do everything in our power to get it done.
"If it was up to me, yeah, as soon as possible, the earlier the better, because we have to integrate him in the team and the way we play.
"In an ideal situation, he was already here. But you do not always get ideal situations as a manager and you have to deal with the situation."
