"I'm a huge Man Utd fan..." - Rasmus Hojlund has already given green light to Old Trafford move

"I'm a huge Man Utd fan..." - Rasmus Hojlund has already given green light to Old Trafford move

He's being strongly linked with a move to Old Trafford.

Rasmus Hojlund has previously revealed his love for Manchester United as speculation over his club future continues.

The Atalanta striker ended the Serie A season on a high on Sunday night, scoring in their 5-2 victory at home to Monza.

The win secured a fifth-placed finish for his side and a spot in the Europa League next season.

Hojlund ends the campaign having scored 16 goals and provided seven assists in all competitions - impressive form for a player who is still only 20.

Several top European clubs, including Manchester United, are reportedly interested in signing Hojlund this summer.

United are in the market for a new forward after allowing Cristiano Ronaldo to leave the club in November.

They have made Tottenham striker Harry Kane their No 1 target this summer.

But there is an acceptance that Spurs chairman Daniel Levy may refuse to sell to a direct Premier League rival, even though Kane is entering the final 12 months of his contract in north London.

United have therefore drawn up a list of alternative targets, which include Hojlund and Eintracht Frankfurt striker Randal Kolo Muani.

The Manchester Evening News claim United boss Erik ten Hag has already held 'multiple video calls' with Hojlund.

And the striker himself has said he would be willing to join United, should they attempt to sign him.

Hojlund: I'm a fan of Man Utd

Speaking earlier this season, Hojlund revealed that he supports the Red Devils.

"Now that you ask, I will not hide the fact that I am a huge Manchester United fan," he said.

"So personally, it would be one of the biggest things for me, but of course that doesn’t mean that I would turn down other big clubs if the offers come at some point."

The Danish striker has already drawn comparisons as the 'new Erling Haaland' for his physicality and pace, while he has also been compared to fellow Scandinavian, Zlatan Ibrahimovic – who announced his retirement from football on Sunday at the age of 41.

But United could be priced out of a move for Hojlund this summer, with 90min claiming that Atalanta will demand a fee of between €65m-€70m (£56m-£60m) in order to sell the Danish forward.

With an initial transfer budget of £100m (as per The Athletic) and several positions to bolster, United may have to look elsewhere – unless they are able to raise additional funds through the sale of players.
