Gary Neville identifies dream partner for Rasmus Hojlund as Man Utd 'target striker' in January

Gary Neville identified his dream striker partner for Rasmus Hojlund.

According to the Mail Online, United are looking to sign a strike partner for Hojlund in January to support the youngster.

Indeed, the club hierarchy allegedly believed the Dane, who is yet to net a Premier League goal, would develop further if he played and trained alongside a more experienced attacker.

The names that have been suggested are Ivan Toney, whom Brentford reportedly value at £100million, Porto's Mehedi Taremi and Napoli's Victor Osimhen.

Beyond those options, former United skipper Neville identified players from United’s past he dreamed Hojlund had the opportunity to play alongside.

Speaking on the Webby and O’Neill YouTube channel Neville said: “I’d have loved to see him up from with Cantona, I’d love to see him up front with Yorke, I’d love to see him up front with Coley, I’d love to see him up front with Wazza [Wayne Rooney].

“If he was up front with Wazza they’d beat everyone up. He’s having to be the man, not the assistant to the man, which he should be really.”

Neville also cited a player that had been a United target this summer, before opting to move to Bavarian giants Bayern Munich.

He said: “If he was up front with Harry Kane we’d be looking at someone rampaging through people.”

Moreover, on Hojlund, who has so far scored his three United goals in the Champions League, Neville continued: “I love Hojlund. Hojlund is a player that fits the Manchester United profile of player.

“He’s young, he’s got plenty of growth, he’s strong. I’d hate to play against him.”
