Manchester United fans have been left in awe as summer target Rasmus Hojlund produced a sublime assist in pre-season.

The Red Devils are on the search for a new striker this summer following Wout Weghorst’s return to Burnley.

Atalanta star Hojlund has emerged as a potential candidate for the role at Old Trafford.

However, United have so far been reluctant to meet the 20-year-old’s asking price of around £85million.

With pre-season now underway, Erik ten Hag will be keen to finalise his squad for the new season as soon as possible.

Hojlund has now once again proven just why United are keen to sign him after he pulled off an excellent assist for Atalanta on Saturday.

In the opening ten minutes of their friendly against FC Locarno, he picked up the ball on the edge of the area with his back to goal.

He then took two touches before chipping it over the backline and into the path of Ademola Lookman.

The winger then took it around the goalkeeper and smashed it in to make it 1-0, capping off a fine goal all round.

For United fans on Twitter though, Hojlund took the plaudits with one saying: “If we don’t sign him it’s pretty obvious he’ll go to another top European club and smash it there.”

“WE CANT F*** UP THIS DEAL,” exclaimed another.

A third added: “More than anything right this boy need to be a united player.”

Despite also being linked with Harry Kane and Victor Osimhen, Hojlund could be the striker that United go for this summer.

Should he sign, he would join Mason Mount and Andre Onana as the club’s new arrivals ahead of Ten Hag’s second season in charge.
