Cesc Fabregas compares Man United star to Van Nistelrooy

 Former Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas has compared Manchester United striker Rasmus Hojlund to the former Red Devils attacker Ruud Van Nistelrooy.

Fabregas said Hojlund is very smart, adding that the 21-year-old attacks the box really well.

Hojlund joined Man United from Atalanta last summer and has scored in his last six Premier League matches for Erik ten Hag’s side.

“He attacks the box really well, he is very smart,” Fabregas told the BBC’s Planet Premier League.

“He is a kind of Van Nistelrooy type of finisher when he gets his confidence.

“I believe he can be a really top striker for United in the future.”
