Rasmus Hojlund has how many goals?
The 20-year-old is yet to reach double figures in the league with his current club Atalanta, but he has already made an impression. He scored nine goals and added two assists in just 20 starts, giving him goals per 90 rate of 0.44 when the season came to a finish.
While he did not score 10 or more goals for the side in Serie A, it was his finest return to date. Looking at his record in first-team football over the course of his career, he is just getting better. Starting with six goals for Sturm Graz, he added three more for them the following season before his move to Italy ended his scoring for the Austrian club.
His nine non-penalty goals for Atalanta placed him in the top ten highest scorers in the division during the 2022/23 season, and his 28 shots on goal ranked him seventh. The young star has then demonstrated his ability to compete with the other striking alternatives in a high league and can already help lead the line for his team despite only being in his teens.
Is Rasmus Hojlund joining Manchester United?
These performances are now attracting attention from other sources. Even though the 20-year-old has only been with the Serie A club for a year, he is already on the verge of departing. Manchester United has been one of the most widely linked teams for the player, with the Premier League club growing increasingly eager to finalize a trade. A recent report said that the Red Devils were planning to make a play for the striker, and it appears that time is running out.
According to respected journalist Fabrizio Romano, the ace has already spoken with United and wishes to move to Old Trafford. The only thing left to agree on is a fee, and the Red Devils have stated that they will make an official bid to sign the youngster next.
He could come at a high price, with Atalanta demanding at least 65 million Euros (£55.9 million) to sign the forward this summer. However, it appears that United attempted to sell several players as part of the transaction, but the Italian side rejected the Premier League club’s proposal.
“Manchester United are preparing their opening bid for Rasmus Hjlund,” Romano claimed. Personal terms are completely agreed upon. He desires United. After initial conversations, Atalanta informed United that they do not want the three players offered in the deal. The asking price is roughly €65/70 million. The next stage is to submit an official bid.”
Despite the fact that he is still young and in the early stages of his career, many who have seen him play have already lauded him. Journalist Ben Jacobs, for example, remarked that he is already a “phenomenal talent” and even went so far as to call him the “next Haaland.”
It’s a bold boast, but it demonstrates how good he has already been in front of goal – and how much potential he has to improve as he ages and gains more experience. If Manchester United can sign him this summer, they will not only fix their frontline problems, but they will also have a player who could potentially lead them for a decade.
