Manchester United Transfer News Now: In an unexpected turn of events as the transfer deadline draws near, Manchester United is reportedly considering the possibility of swooping in for Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg
- Hojbjerg was set to join Atletico Madrid earlier this summer but the move fell through
- United is actively looking for a midfielder following Fred’s departure and Mount’s injury.
- Manchester United are yet to make any advancements for Sofyan Amrabat.
This surprising move follows Atletico Madrid’s unsuccessful attempt to sign the Danish international earlier this summer, a deal that fell through owing to a stalemate in personal terms negotiations.
Hojbjerg, a crucial senior player for Tottenham, declined a spectacular offer from the Saudi Pro-League as well, despite the contract’s staggering £45 million net compensation. The culmination of these circumstances may present Manchester United with a window of opportunity to hire the 28-year-old midfielder.
The manager of Manchester United, Erik ten Hag, has been outspoken about the team’s need to strengthen the center midfield position. The arrival of Hojbjerg may fill this hole and provide the squad the assistance it needs.
But Manchester United’s ambitions could be hampered by financial concerns. Sofyan Amrabat of Fiorentina is the target of the club’s interest, but no formal offer has been made yet. The players’ reps are getting impatient and dissatisfied with the lack of noticeable advancement. Amrabat is obviously of interest to Atletico Madrid, but he appears to have his sights set on a Premier League adventure.
Manchester United is at a decision point as the transfer window closes. Key player injuries have made the situation worse. Due to the absence of Luke Shaw, new addition Mason Mount is out with a hamstring injury, necessitating the search for a replacement left-back. Sergio Reguilon, Marcos Alonso, and Marc Cucurella have all surfaced as possible contenders to fill this position.
