“I’ve just got this feeling” – Goldbridge “obsessed” with MUFC target who could be next Bruno

Posted by

YouTuber Mark Goldbridge has urged Manchester United to sign striker Rasmus Hojlund in the upcoming summer transfer window.

What are the most recent transfer rumours involving Man Utd?
The Red Devils are making an effort to try and secure a top-four finish with just four Premier League games remaining.

They’ll have a better idea of who would be a realistic transfer target once they know whether or not they’ll be competing in the Champions League next season.

Hojlund, 20, could be a less expensive option while prices in the neighbourhood of £100 million have been mentioned for strikers like Harry Kane and Victor Osimhen.

While speaking about the Danish forward on The United Stand, Goldbridge claimed he was “convinced” the younger would be a great fit for the club and claimed he hadn’t been as “obsessed” with a target since Bruno Fernandes.

He explained (12:53): “I’m going to be the minority here. Rasmus Hojlund, all the way, is who I would go for.

“I just think, you see what City have done with Haaland. You look at what Ten Hag can do as as a developer of talent. I’m absolutely convinced this is the guy that we need to go and get.

It’s an obsession I haven’t experienced since Bruno’s era. Bruno and I shared an obsession. I remember saying, “The summer before we signed Bruno, I was obsessed with him going into that summer, before anyone was really talking about Bruno.”

I just wouldn’t stop talking about Bruno Fernandes, and we did manage to get him. And I’ve just got this feeling again, about Hojlund.

So yes, I’m not sure if we will do it, but I just think it’s ideal.

Should Rasmus Hojlund sign with MUFC?
Fernandes certainly has turned out to be a pretty brilliant inning for Man Utd. After all, he has 61 goals and 53 assists in 180 games for the club.

No doubt, his assist rate could improve even more if he had a constant goal threat leading the line in front of him and perhaps Hojlund could be that man.

Indeed, the £10.7k-p/w Atalanta striker has 20 direct goal contributions in total this season (14 goals and six assists) despite still being so young.

It is easy to understand why Goldbridge believes the 20-year-old will eventually mature into one of Europe’s top attacking threats in light of this.

If Kane and Osimhen do end up being unrealistic targets this summer, it will certainly be interesting to see if Hojlund is chased instead.
