Rasmus Hojlund opens up on Manchester United dream

Rasmus Holund looks forward to reuniting with Manchester United after the international break as he opens up on his dream move.

The international break might have come too soon for Rasmus Hojlund in the context of his Manchester United career. The forward may have joined much earlier, but a minor back problem prevented him from participating in games this season for the club.

He did make his debut in the late loss against Arsenal at the Emirates but showed positive signs of how he might improve the team only in a few minutes on the pitch. He provided Erik Ten Hag with a physical presence in the No.9 role, which Manchester United have lacked for a considerable time.

Manchester United signed Hojlund in a potential £72 million deal from Atalanta. They had to face intense competition from other clubs, with PSG one of those keen to sign the forward. The Danish star hopes to replicate his recent for his national side on the club scene.

Hojlund recently revealed he turned down other offers in favour of his ‘dream’ club Manchester United. Now, with his national team, the Danish star opens up on what the move means for him and how eager he is to return to action for the Red Devils, as his comments appeared on Danish outlet Bold.

Hojlund said, “Of course. I’ve said it many times, but it’s probably the biggest miss when you’re with the national team, so I’m looking forward to it. “I live the dream every day, so I’m happy about that, says Højlund after the match.”

The £72 million attacker then spoke about looking forward to the next challenges ahead, like facing the likes of Brighton and Bayern Munich right after the current international break.

Hojlund continued, “It has been positive. I myself think that I made a good jump-in, and I hope that there are more minutes after the national team break.”

“We have some exciting matches ahead. We have to face Brighton this weekend and Bayern Munich in the next midweek, so I’m really looking forward to that, says Højlund.”

Hojlund will have to play a significant role for Manchester United after the break, especially when the club could have a shortage of forward options. With Antony unavailable, the Ten Hag-Jadon Sancho spat has also left them short of options.

They are a Marcus Rashford injury away from a crisis, but Hojlund will have to contribute with goals and make himself a capable player in that team. While he might harbour ambitions to perform well against Brighton and Bayern Munich, those are the toughest fixtures for the club until they meet Manchester City around the end of October.
