Rasmus Hojlund, who joined Manchester United on August 5, said he had always dreamed of stepping out at Old Trafford as a Manchester United player. Hojlund has signed on with the Red Devils on a five-year deal.
Hojlund joined United from Atalanta on a five-year contract that runs through June 2028.
The 20-year-old opened up about his chat with Erik ten Hag, saying he is excited about the prospect of working with the Dutch coach.
At such a young age, the attacker has 27 goals in 87 club games, including 10 for Atalanta last season in Italy. Hojlund, who is already a senior international, has six goals in six appearances for Denmark.
Rasmus Hojlund is on the verge of joining Manchester United, and he could soon become the club's quickest player.
"Hojlund possesses a great spirit, enthusiasm, and intensity, as well as technical ability. He also has a lot of room for improvement. He shares many characteristics with Haaland. He is so fast that he can run 100m in under 11 seconds without even trying. Considering his height, he has a low centre of gravity and can move his legs very quickly; I am confident he will have a successful career; he just gets stronger every day," said Gian Piero Gasperini, an Italian football manager, and former player who is presently the manager of Italian club Atalanta.
Last month, ESPN reported that United was prepared to spend £64 million ($82 million) for the young striker, with a further £8 million ($10 million) in add-ons.
In the official press release by Manchester United, Manchester United Football Director John Murtough stated: "Rasmus is a truly extraordinary talent." He has technical and athletic abilities that place him among the best players in the world for his age group. Working with Erik Ten Hag and his coaches will offer Rasmus an ideal development environment. Everyone at the club will work hard to provide him with the time and support he needs to fulfil his full potential.
