Hojlund wanted by United

Denmark international forward Rasmus Hojlund has emerged as a target for Manchester United this summer, as the 6 foot 3 forward dubbed 'the next Haaland' continues his impressive form in Serie A with Atalanta. Formerly of Sturm Graz and FC Copenhagen, the 20-year-old has established himself as one of the best prospects in Europe.

United have reportedly tabled a 45 million euro bid for the striker, as the Red Devils look to plug an attacking hole in their squad. 

Rasmus Hojlund was born on March 5, 1997, in Aalborg, Denmark. From a young age, he displayed a natural flair for football and was determined to pursue a career in the sport. Hojlund's talent did not go unnoticed, and he quickly rose through the ranks of the Danish football system. His exceptional skills, versatility, and tactical awareness caught the attention of scouts, leading to his debut in professional football.

Rasmus Hojlund's talent did not go unnoticed by the national team selectors, and he earned his first call-up to the Danish national football team. Representing his country on the international stage, Hojlund continued to impress. His performances in international tournaments and friendly matches demonstrated his composure, technique, and ability to handle pressure.

One of Hojlund's most significant achievements was his contribution to Denmark's success in the UEFA European Championship. With his skillful dribbling, vision, and clinical finishing, he played a vital role in the team's journey to the tournament's later stages. His performances garnered praise from fans, teammates, and football pundits alike, establishing him as a rising star in Danish football.

At Atalanta, a return of eight goals in 22 games is a decent return for the youngster.

Man Utd are hoping that Hojlund will provide competition for current forwards Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial.
