Rasmus Hojlund confirms EURO 2024 target as Man United ‘confident’ of £100m transfer swoop

Manchester United striker Rasmus Højlund has confirmed his target for the upcoming Euro 2024 tournament with Denmark this summer.

Højlund, 21, scored 16 goals for United last term during his first season in English football. He signed from Atalanta last summer.

He helped Erik ten Hag’s side win the FA Cup last weekend and will now be turning his attention to international duty with Denmark this summer.

The 21-year-old is keen to help his nation if he is selected for the final squad for the tournament and is hopeful that they will advance into the knockout stages.

Denmark are in a group with England, Slovenia and Serbia after Højlund scored seven goals in eight qualifying games.

“It’s going to be insanely cool. I was close to making it last time [to the World Cup in Qatar], but stumbled right at the finish line. I’m really looking forward to it – now we’ll first have to see if I get selected.

“It means a lot to me to play on the national team, and it always has. I have always followed the national team and been a big supporter – even when things didn’t go so well. I am very patriotic, and it’s something very special to take the field with other Danes and play against other nations. It will always be special to me.

“I have never been the type to set a goal for myself, but of course, I will be happy if we advance from the group stage, and I can help the team along the way by scoring some goals.”

Meanwhile, United are reportedly ‘confident’ of a double swoop for Premier League duo Michael Olise and Jarrad Branthwaite.

According to talkSPORT, Crystal Palace want at least £60 million for Olise, while Branthwaite could be available for as little as £40 million due to Everton’s ongoing financial issues.
