Manchester United would have made several important signings in the last few years with the main goal of returning the club to its glory days and making forget important players at the club as Cristiano Ronaldo, which nobody has achieved yet due to the great numbers delivered by the Portuguese superstar at the club and the poor performances his substitutes have had at the institution.

This would be the case of one of the latest signing of the Red Devils, who joined the club with the main goal of competing with Erling Haaland for being one of the top scorers in the Premier League due to his quality and promising skills on the pitch, which wouldn’t have evolved as well as expected.

The player disappointing the media and the fans would be the Danish striker Rasmus Hojlund, whose numbers with Manchester United are far from the expectations everybody at the club had when he signed for the Red Devils in the summer transfer window after the Mancunian team paid €85 million to Atalanta to take him to Old Trafford.

The player delivered really poor numbers with the Red Devils

In this sense, despite it is true that the player has scored two goals for Manchester United in the current Premier League season, these numbers would be really poor after having made 16 appearances with the Red Devils in the league, which would indicate that Hojlund wouldn’t be prepared yet to compete with the greatest strikers in the league, which would have caused that the club is looking for a new scorer in the market, with the Dutch striker Joshua Zirkzee from Bologna as the main candidate to take the position of Hojlund in the short term.
