Manchester United among European giants keen on signing Tottenham Hotspur midfielder

Tottenham midfielder set to reunite with former Spurs gaffer in Turkey this summer

Manchester United and Juventus show interest in Tottenham star Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg

Premier League rivals Manchester United alongside Italian juggernauts Juventus and La Liga giants Atletico Madrid show interest in securing the services of Tottenham Hotspur and Denmark midfielder Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg.

The 28-year-old central midfielder has not enjoyed a lot of playing time under new manager Ange Postecoglou, who has preferred to start Yves Bissouma and Pape Matar Sarr alongside James Maddison in the middle of the park.

With Rodrigo Bentancur also returning to the fold after a long-term injury, the pecking order will in all likelihood shift Hojbjerg further down. Spurs now have a dilemma in front of them. Whether or not is it sensible to keep hold of players who offer depth in the middle of the park, or cash in on them in their prime is a question Ange faces.

According to Corriere dello Sport, Manchester United have reignited their interest in the player after the failure to get him on board in the summer transfer window. Moreover, Juventus also recently sent scouts to watch the Dane in the game against Chelsea. Atletico Madrid are also interested in the player.

Paul Pogba and Nicolo Fagioli’s unavailability due to doping breaches and betting rules breaches respectively has put Juve into action in the transfer market to secure additional depth.

One more aspect to whether or not Tottenham would let him go irrespective of the €30m fee is the fact that Bissouma and Sarr will travel to their respective countries to play in the AFCON come January. At that time, we would need players like Hojbjerg around to sustain the squad.
