In the summer of 2023, Manchester United paid close attention to Harry KAne, who is entering the final 12 months of his contract with Tottenham Hotspur. However, the Red Devils do not want to spend heavily on Kane and feel Spurs would never consider selling him to a Premier League rival.
In addition, Man Utd also paid attention to Evan Ferguson at a time when Brighton sold Alexis Mac Allister to Liverpool and considered the departure of Moises Caicedo. Therefore, the Seagulls are under no pressure to sell and will ask for a figure of around £120m for the Irishman.
Therefore, the Old Trafford team recruited Rasmus Hojlund for 72 million pounds from Atalanta. This number is lower than the Kane and Ferguson deals. Besides, Man Utd pays £50,000 a week for the Danish strikersignificantly lower than the salary of £400,000 a week that Kane has at Bayern Munich.
After all these factors, Man Utd feels that investing in Hojlund is a wise move and that this young player will continue to develop in the coming years. Hojlund has scored three goals this season, all three coming in the Champions League.
