Rasmus Hojlund explains why he joined Manchester United

An insight into why Rasmus Hojlund decided to join Manchester United has been provided.

Rasmus Hojlund joined Manchester United from Serie A side Atalanta for an initial £64m plus £8m in add-ons.

Hojlund is now tasked with leading the line for Manchester United despite his limited experience.

The forward scored 16 goals in all competitions last season but now has a lot of pressure on his shoulders.

After making the move to Manchester, Hojlund has provided an insight into why he chose the Red Devils:

“I know it’s the most competitive league in the world,” he explained to MUTV.

“Playing for Man United has always been my dream.

Erik ten Hag has also revealed what the Dane will bring to Man United:

“He is really a front man, very direct to the goal,” he said after the friendly win over Lens.

“A very good presser, a physical presence and I think in the balance of this squad we needed that. Alongside [Marcus] Rashford, [he is] another player who is direct and can score goals and that is all in his mind – he wants to score goals.”
