Manchester United have joined the bid for Danish midfielder Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, challenging Atlético Madrid in the race for the talented player’s services. Although Atlético are seen as favorites to sign Hojbjerg, financial differences have opened the door to competition from other clubs, including United.
The economic claims demanded by Tottenham, the club to which Hojbjerg belongs, presented a major obstacle in the negotiations with Atlético de Madrid, prompting the player to look for alternatives. As reported by The Telegraph, Manchester United have become serious contenders in this dispute.
Manchester United want to steal a last-minute signing from Atlético
Hojbjerg, 28, is a player who is not in the plans of Tottenham technical director Ange Postecoglou. His departure from the London club seems inevitable and his fate has been in constant flux due to financial difficulties. Now that there is an opportunity to join United, the situation is unsettled.
Manchester United, led by Erik ten Hag, are keen to strengthen their midfield, particularly with the likely departure of Scott McTominay, who is not in the Dutch manager’s plans. Hojbjerg, with his Premier League experience, represents an attractive option for the Red Devils.
Hojbjerg’s contract at Tottenham runs until the summer of 2025 but his immediate future looks a long way from London. Atlético Madrid and Manchester United are now vying for the Danish midfielder, whose performance on the pitch has made him a desirable target in the transfer market.
The battle for Hojbjerg’s signing promises to be intense and fans of both clubs are excited to see where this talented midfielder will end up in the coming days.
