English Premier League Manchester United have signed Rasmus Hoilun (20), dubbed ‘Denmark Halan’.
Manchester United announced on the 5th (Korean time), “We have signed a contract with Hoilun until June 2028, with a one-year extension option included.” The transfer fee was not disclosed, but it is known that it amounts to 72 million pounds (120 billion won) including options.
Manchester United introduced Hoilun to the fans ahead of the pre-season match against Lens at Old Trafford. Hoilun came down to the ground and greeted the home fans for the first time, showing off a Manchester United jersey with his name on it.
United’s loan signing last season, Boot Verhost, fell short of expectations and Anthony Martial suffered frequent injuries. Manchester United, which needed an authentic number 9 striker, tried to sign Harry Kane (Tottenham) and Victor Osimen (Napoli) this summer, but turned to Hoilun when it was not easy. Hoilun, who went through Copenhagen (Denmark) and Sturm Graz (Austria), scored 10 goals (9 league goals) for Atalanta in Italy’s Serie A last season. As part of the Denmark A national team, he scored 6 goals in 6 matches, including a hat-trick against Finland.
It is compared to Manchester City striker Elling Holland (23, Norway), a ‘Man Utd rival’, and is called ‘Denmark Halan’. Born in 2003, Hoilun, like Holland, hails from a Scandinavian country and has blonde hair. In addition, he has a large height (1m91cm), fast speed that runs 100m in 11 seconds, and the ability to finish in the final third.
France’s Paris Saint-Germain also joined the scout, but Hoilun chose Man Utd. “I’ve been a Manchester United fan since I was a kid, and he dreamed of walking out to Old Trafford as a United player,” Hoyle Loon said. I’m so glad I got the opportunity to turn his dream into reality. He will give back on the pitch the faith he has shown in me to the club. After talking with the manager (Eric Ten Haag), he thought he would be able to continue improving,” he said. Manchester United director John Murteau said, “Hoilun, who has a special talent, is the best in the world not only in his skills but also in his stamina.”
Danish teammate Christian Eriksen plays for Manchester United. Previously, Manchester United signed Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount and Inter Milan goalkeeper Andre Onana this summer.
On the same day, Manchester City said, “We signed a five-year contract with German Leipzig defender Yoshko Gbardiol (21). His uniform number is 24,” he announced. The transfer fee is known to be 78 million pounds (128.5 billion won). “Anyone who watched Manchester City last season knows they are the best team in the world,” said Gbardiol. I am not a complete player yet, and I will develop further under the best coach.”토토사이트
Gbardiol is a defender who led Croatia to the semifinals wearing a black face shield at the World Cup in Qatar last year. Man City, who won the treble last season (three crowns), brought in another Croatian player following Mateo Kovacic.
