Done – Man United secure £73.5million signing

Erik ten Hag - Manchester United manager

Manchester United badly needed an out and out striker to improve things up front and they have finally landed a talented boy in the form of Rasmus Hojlund.

According to Italian source, Libero, Man Utd have secured the signing of the center forward in a mammoth deal worth 85 million euros (£73.5million) from Atalanta.

The 20-year-old striker was unveiled yesterday before the friendly contest against Lens and Ten Hag’s men won the fixture 3-1.

Today, the Red Devils will collide against Spanish La Liga side, Athletic Bilbao, but the fans will not be able to see Hojlund make his debut.

The Danish international is currently not fit and we will have to wait for a few weeks to see him in action.

After completing the move, the former Copenhagen starlet reiterated that he has been a Man Utd supporter since he was a kid and it is a dream come true for him to sign for the club he loves.

Last season, majority of the goalscoring burden was on Marcus Rashford, who mainly played on the left flank and the sudden departure of Cristiano Ronaldo in the middle of the season was a shock.

To replace the Portuguese legend, Ten Hag opted to lure Weghorst on loan and the Dutchman flopped big time.

Hopefully, Hojlund, who only netted 9 goals in the league last term, will be able to live up to his huge price tag.

Do you think Man Utd have overpaid to sign him for £73.5million?
