Erik ten Hag wants Harry Kane, but Club Opted for Rasmus Hojlund

Erik ten Hag

Manchester United’s manager, Erik ten Hag, has admitted he was interested in signing Harry Kane last summer, but the club ended up going with Rasmus Hojlund instead.

Hojlund came to United from Atalanta in a £72 million deal, while Kane left Tottenham for Bayern Munich in a £100 million transfer.

In his first season at Old Trafford, Hojlund has scored eight goals in 26 Premier League appearances so far, whereas Kane has bagged 35 goals in 31 Bundesliga matches for Bayern.

“We have had some choices made with talents like Rasmus Hojlund.

“I can see a striker who already proved it, who we want to sign and we couldn’t get him. And then we went to Rasmus because he’s a talent,” Ten Hag said during an interview with Gary Neville for Sky Sports.

Ten Hag was specifically asked if he was talking about Kane and he replied: “Yes, and you know Harry Kane will get you 30 goals.

“I think Rasmus will get there, but he needs time. It’s not fair to assess him the same as Harry Kane. I would never compare two players because they are very different.”
