Man Utd stalls to give Rasmus Hojlund a shirt number as Ten Hag contemplates of it

After earning a hefty transfer fee, Rasmus Hojlund will be eager to secure a coveted Manchester United jersey number.

According to rumors, Manchester United is delaying because of Rasmus Hojlund’s jersey number.

 Erik ten Hag is eager to wait and evaluate the composition of his squad before making a final decision regarding what will appear on the back of the famous red jersey worn by the Dane since further transfer agreements are in the works.

Following the completion of his £72 million transfer from Atalanta, Hojlund is expected to play a significant role in United’s upcoming campaign.

 This weekend’s exhibition match against Lens was the striker’s debut in front of his new supporters.

Old Trafford’s numbers 13 and 15 are now open, with players like Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford, and Mason Greenwood already occupying the most sought-after attacking positions.

The Daily Mail claims that United are delaying assigning one to Hojlund because they would rather wait until other transfer conversations have concluded, with movement anticipated next week.

At the weekend, Rasmus Hojlund was introduced to Man United supporters.

Sofyan Amrabat and Leon Goretzka have been closely associated with the Red Devils, which suggests that Ten Hag plans to strengthen his midfield options in the near future.

 Given that Hojlund is expected to miss weeks of action after arriving at Old Trafford injured, there will be no rush to give him his number.

The No. 11 position could become available soon as United has concluded a thorough study into Greenwood and will announce their final decision before their Premier League start.

Just over a week remains for United before Wolves’ August 14 visit to Old Trafford.

 The protracted preseason under Ten Hag’s leadership came to an end on Sunday with a 1-1 draw in Dublin against Athletic Bilbao.

Hojlund will try to cement himself as United’s starting striker as soon as possible, despite the fact that he must wait before making his debut and learning his shirt number.

 Martial is also vying for minutes, but his lackluster fitness record will undoubtedly give the newcomer opportunity.

This year, Rasmus Hojlund will try to start as Man Utd’s striker.

Wout Weghorst spent the second part of last season on loan with the Red Devils. 

Ten Hag, however, made the decision to send him back to parent club Burnley and explore for other alternatives following 17 goalless Premier League games.

20-year-old Hojlund has yet to record ten goals in a single league season, but he showed great promise at Atalanta last year and has six goals in six for Denmark’s national team.
