Man Utd sign Danish striker Højlund as Man City’s Holland counterpart

SEOUL, South Korea (Yonhap) (Yonhap) – English professional soccer club Manchester United has signed Danish striker Rasmus Hojlund to replace Manchester City goalkeeper Elling Holland .British media outlets, including the BBC, reported on Tuesday that the Red Devils have reached an greement to acquire Hojlund from Atalanta (Italy).The transfer fee is reportedly 64 million pounds ($151 million), rising to 72 million pounds ($182 million) if an option is triggered. Born in 2003, Hui Lun is a highly touted prospect who stands at 6-foot-2 and has great pace. At just 20 years old, he scored 10 goals in Serie A last season, including nine in 32 league games. Having spent the previous two seasons playing for Sturm Graz in Austria, he was considered one of the top striker prospects in the country, but a perfect debut season in Serie A changed the way big clubs viewed him. The Red Devils emerged victorious from a bidding war that included Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) and other clubs. Initially, United had set a budget of £60 million for the player, which was exceeded by £12 million .The Red Devils have been on the hunt for a striker in the summer transfer indow at the urging of manager Eric Tenhagh, after star striker Anthony Martial was frequently sidelined by injury last year. However, with few players in their prime available, the club made the bold decision to take a chance on a player with high ‘potential’, in the form of Huy Lun. Many analysts believe that United’s decision to sign Høyelund was also made with City and Holland in mind. City made a “big splurge” on the Norwegian striker ahead of last season. was the top scorer in the English Premier League (EPL) with 36 goals, including four hat tricks. One of those hat tricks came against Manchester United. He was also the top scorer in the UEFA Champions League (UCL) with 12 goals. With 52 goals in 53 official games, Holland’s 온라인카지노 brilliance helped City win a triple treble. Højlund is a match for Holland. They hail from the same Nordic country, are similar in height (Holland is 6-foot-2), and are both typical strikers with physicality as their strength, but with the ability to combine speed and link-up play .They even have the same blonde hair color. However, their “name value” at the time of joining their respective clubs is not comparable. Before joining City, Holland had already conquered the Bundesliga and was dubbed a “monster striker” .Hooper, on the other hand, needs to prove his big league credentials a bit more. That’s why some say United bought a “lottery ticket .”All United have acquired in Hoi Lun is ‘raw potential’,” said the BBC, “but there are glimpses of stardom on the horizon”.
