The transfer of Rasmus Hojlund to Manchester United has finally become official.

The Danish striker has left the Italian team Atalanta after just one season and has taken the big step in his career by joining the English giant.

Manchester United has introduced the Danish talent for which he paid a full 70 million euros to Atalanta.

The 20-year-old has signed a five-year contract with Manchester United.

“It’s no secret that I’ve been a fan of this great club since I was little and dreamed of playing at Old Trafford as a Manchester United player.”

“I am incredibly excited by this opportunity to turn that dream into reality and I am determined to repay the faith the club has shown in me. It’s still early in my career, but I know I’m ready to take this step and play with this group of world-class players.”

“After speaking with the manager, I knew that this environment would be perfect for my development. I am enjoying the opportunity to work with one of the best coaches in the world. Under his guidance and support, I know I am able to achieve great things together with my new teammates at this special club,” said Hojlund.
