Manchester United's New Signings Set to Debut Against Arsenal
Manchester United's manager, Erik ten Hag, has confirmed that Danish striker Rasmus Hojlund is fit and available for the upcoming Premier League game against Arsenal. Hojlund, who joined United from Atalanta for a reported fee of £72 million ($91.22 million) before the season began, has been sidelined due to a back injury. However, he is now ready to make his debut for the club.
Ten Hag expressed optimism about Hojlund's fitness, stating, "He had a good training week, tomorrow we have a final training, but he is doing well, he is responding well, so yeah he will be available for Sunday's game."
Another potential debutant for United is Sergio Reguilon, the Spanish left-back who arrived from Tottenham Hotspur. Ten Hag confirmed Reguilon's presence and highlighted his experience, saying, "He's a very experienced player, played for big clubs, already played a lot of LaLiga and Premier League games, he has a very good background, he can play very intense football, we are happy."
In addition to these signings, United recently secured the services of Turkish goalkeeper Altay Bayindir from Fenerbahce, bolstering their goalkeeper options. Ten Hag confirmed Altay's inclusion in the squad, saying, "He will be in the squad as well yeah. Now we have the keeper group, again, is fully there, we covered every position, so I think we have a very good keeper group with the arrival of Altay."
While British media has strongly linked United with a loan deal for Fiorentina midfielder Sofyan Amrabat, Ten Hag refrained from commenting on the matter due to the transfer window's impending closure. However, he expressed satisfaction with the club's overall performance in the transfer market, stating, "We have done good business, we constructed a strong squad and we are ready to go with the fight. I can't tell because I don't know if he (Amrabat) can sign. When we have news, we will report it immediately."
Manchester United, with two wins from three games, will face Arsenal on Sunday. The Gunners currently sit one point ahead of United in the Premier League table.
