In such a scenario, Man Utd are looking to further reinforce the DM position and have already submitted an offer to sign Morten Hjulmand from Sporting CP.

According to The Sun, Man Utd tabled a swap bid involving Pellistri to lure the Danish midfielder but it was turned down by the Lions.

Correio da Manha (news image provided below) back the story from the British source and claim that the ‘first proposal’ was turned down.

CM Jornal claim Man Utd have been following Hjulmand for some time but they will only be able to sign him this month if they activate the £68.8million (80 million euros) clause in his contract.

The 24-year-old left Italian side, Lecce, to sign for Sporting CP for just 20 million euros in the summer transfer window and the Lisbon side have no plans of offloading him, especially in the middle of the campaign.

Hjulmand has been rock solid in the No.6 position for manager Ruben Amorim, whose team is currently on top of the Liga Nos table after 16 fixtures.

The 3-capped international has been able to replace Joao Palhinha in the defensive midfield role. The Portuguese left the club to join Fulham in 2022 and has been a hit in the Premier League.

In your view, should Man Utd bid £68.8million to sign Morten Hjulmand?
