Christian Eriksen talked with Rasmus Hojlund about moving to Old Trafford, the new Manchester United signing has revealed. United have secured their much-needed striker by securing starlet Hojlund in a deal with Atalanta that could rise as high as £72million. The Dane was unveiled to his new supporters ahead of the friendly victory over Lens on Saturday after signing a five-year contract. Though Hojlund is currently nursing an injury which will delay his debut, the 20-year-old has been getting used to his new Carrington surroundings and getting to know his teammates. One man he already knows well is playmaker Eriksen as they are international teammates for Denmark. When asked by United’s in-house media if Eriksen helped convince him to move to Manchester, Hojlund replied: “We speak a little [already]. He called himself Agent Christian in the national team!” said Rasmus, when asked if Christian had convinced him to sign.

He also helped me in the beginning here, showing me around Carrington today. Yeah, he’s a good guy.” The most famous Dane to ever play for United is legendary goalkeeper and treble-winner Peter Schmeichel, who Hojlund has also talked about his new home with before in the past. “He’s great. He’s a legend of the game in Denmark,” he added. “[He’s] The best goalkeeper we’ve had in the history of the Danish national team so you cannot run away from it and a Treble winner. “I’ve also spoken to him a few times about Manchester. And he’s a good guy. Everybody knows how he is. He’s a tough guy, but he’s a good guy.”Story SavedYou can find this story in  My Bookmarks.Or by navigating to the user icon in the top right.
