Manchester United target Rasmus Hojlund confirms he has signed with new agent amid transfer speculation

Manchester United target Rasmus Hojlund confirms he has signed with new agent amid transfer speculation

Hojlund has spoken out.

Manchester United target Rasmus Hojlund has confirmed that he has signed with a new agency, reported to be the same used by manager Erik ten Hag.

The Atalanta forward is one of several players being tracked by United as they look to ease the goalscoring burden on Marcus Rashford next season.

At 20 years of age, Hojlund has impressed during his first season in Serie A, netting nine goals in 32 appearances.

Standing at around 6ft 1in tall, the striker is imposing, agile and excellent in the air - and has also burst on to the scene at international level this season.

He netted his first hat-trick for Denmark in a 3-1 win over Finland in March, and followed that up by scoring both goals in a 3-2 defeat against Kazakhstan three days later.

According to the Daily Mirror, Ten Hag has placed Hojlund - a boyhood United fan - on a six-player transfer shortlist at Old Trafford, and the player is said to be keen to make the move.

Now, the Dane may have dropped another clue that he could join United soon.

Hojlund confirms agency switch

Hojlund told local media in Denmark: "I have got someone [an agent company]. But they are on a trial period. It's a trial period, and that's all I can say."

The Athletic's Laurie Whitwell earlier this month that the Danish striker had signed up to the SEG agency, which also represents manager Erik ten Hag.

It was claimed that he had taken the decision due to the expectation of a transfer 'in his short or medium-term future'.

Ten Hag has been involved with the agency on a long-term basis, as confirmed by SEG when they congratulated the Dutchman on his appointment as United boss on LinkedIn: "Congratulations Erik ten Hag with this big step in your career. We are proud to be part of this journey since the start."

Whitwell also reported that the agency's co-founder, Kees Vos, is a regular at Old Trafford, and watched the club's 2-1 win over Fulham on the final day of the Premier League season.
