Manchester United signed Mason Mount and Sofyan Amrabat to improve the midfield in the summer but they are still looking to further reinforce the department.

As per a story covered by Corriere dello Sport yesterday (news image provided below), the 28-year-old could be sold by Spurs as he is not in the plans of new manager, Ange Postecoglou.

The coach has preferred the likes of Bissouma and Sarr in the center of the park and in such a scenario, Hojbjerg has only warmed the bench.

The former Southampton midfielder is yet to start a game in the Premier League for the north Londoners in the current campaign.

CdS claim Juventus are looking to lure the player in January in case Paul Pogba is disqualified for doping. On the other hand, Man Utd are also interested in hiring his services.

The Rome based media outlet have mentioned that the suitors will have to agree a fee of £26m (30 million euros) to sign Hojbjerg from Spurs.

Juventus’ finances are not great at the moment and they are eyeing a loan deal, however, Tottenham will only offload him on a permanent transfer.

Hojbjerg is a natural defensive midfielder cum deep lying playmaker, who can also move forward and create/score goals. Last season, the experienced star directly contributed in 12 goals.

Have your say – Should Man Utd agree a fee of £26m to finally secure his signing?
