Why Manchester United signed Rasmus Hojlund over Harry Kane

Ten Hag has been discussing Manchester United’s summer striking business.

Erik ten Hag has insisted Manchester United do not regret signing Rasmus Hojlund over Harry Kane this summer.

Man United made Kane their priority striker signing at the beginning of the transfer window. But they moved on to other targets over reported concerns over the cost of the deal and possible reluctance from Kane himself.

Instead, United signed Rasmus Hojlund for £72m, with the player yet to get off the mark for United amid injury issues.

Speaking to reporters on Tuesday, Ten Hag said he is happy with the signing of Hojlund, who was injured for the first month of his time at the club, and insists United made the right decision to look elsewhere:

“I don’t think we have to repeat this debate,” he said, adding: “We are happy with Rasmus, obviously first game he was injured.

“He played against Arsenal, he’s now had a start, now we have to integrate him in the team. But you can see he’s a big talent and he will contribute to our game. We’re quite confident of that.”
