The Red Devils announced Hojlund’s arrival from Serie A side Atalanta over the weekend, with the player signing a five-year agreement after United agreed to pay £72 million for his services.
Following a breakout season at both club and international level, Hojlund arrives in Manchester as one of Europe’s most highly regarded young attackers, and has been signed to head United’s attacking line under Erik ten Hag.
However, supporters may have to wait a little longer to witness their new mega-money acquisition in action, as the club has revealed Hojlund will not be engaged right away.
“Due to a minor injury sustained in pre-season with his former club, it will be a few weeks before we see him with his boots on.” Rasmus’ rehabilitation is going well, and we know he’ll be wanting to get back out there as soon as possible,” a statement said.
Hojlund stated his enthusiasm at signing for United in an interview with the club’s official website, revealing that the opportunity to play in the Premier League was a major factor in his decision to join the Old Trafford club.
“That’s why I come here.” “I know it’s the world’s most competitive league,” he remarked. “I’ve always wanted to play for Manchester United.” So, these are two extremely major factors that influenced my decision to come here. [I’m] simply excited to get started working and on the pitch.”
