Man Utd fans react to ex-target Rodrygo’s UCL hat-trick for Real Madrid

When it rains, it pours. Amidst Manchester United’s difficult start to the campaign – they lie in tenth in the Premier League after 11 games – the last thing the club needed was to see a former transfer target absolutely tear the house down in the Champions League.

And Real Madrid starlet Rodrygo did exactly that on Wednesday night. The Daily Mail reported back in 2018 that the Red Devils were making checks on the Brazilian, after the then Santos prodigy became the youngest goal-scorer in the Copa Libertadores.

In the end, the 18-year-old joined Madrid for €45m (£38.7m), and in mid-week, proved exactly why Los Blancos shelled out big-money for a teenager.

The forward scored the perfect hat-trick in the 6-0 thrashing of Galatasaray, including two in the opening seven minutes of the contest at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Rodrygo or Mason Greenwood?

After seeing Rodrygo sparkle in such stunning fashion, United fans took to Twitter to voice their thoughts on their former target.

Many Red Devils supporters revealed their dismay at missing out on the 18-year-old, whilst some simply appeared to be in awe of what he had achieved.
