Man United Holds Discussions with Tottenham for Hojbjerg
According to credible sources from Sky Sports, Manchester United is actively pursuing a new addition to their midfield before the transfer window closes on September 1st. Their primary target for this late signing is Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg from Tottenham, and initial contact has already been made between the two clubs.
Manchester United is presented with a favorable opportunity as the Danish midfielder is approaching the final two years of his contract with Spurs. This puts pressure on Tottenham, as they risk losing Hojbjerg for free if they don’t secure a new destination for him by the summer of 2024.
During this summer transfer window, there have been reports linking Manchester United to other midfield options such as Sofyan Amrabat from Fiorentina and Ryan Gravenberch from Bayern. However, it appears that the leading candidate to bolster Manchester United’s midfield is Hojbjerg, who already has extensive experience in the Premier League and wouldn’t require time to adapt.
Hojbjerg would also have the opportunity to reunite with his Danish teammate, Christian Eriksen, at Manchester United. Last season, Hojbjerg played a crucial role for Spurs, featuring in 44 official matches, starting in all of them, scoring five goals, and providing seven assists.
