Cm Jornal – Man Utd table bid to sign £68.8million star

Posted by

In order to strengthen the defensive midfield position at Old Trafford, Manchester United signed Sofyan Amrabat in the summer.

Regretfully, playmaker extraordinaire Casemiro sustained a major injury; nonetheless, the Moroccan international has been unable to fill the void.

In such a case, Man Utd has already made a bid to recruit Morten Hjulmand from Sporting CP in an effort to further bolster the DM position.

The Sun claims that Man Utd attempted to entice the Danish midfielder Pellistri with a swap offer featuring Pellistri, but the Lions rejected it.

The British source’s account is supported by Correio da Manha (news image below), which asserts that the “first proposal” was rejected.

Man Utd have reportedly been pursuing Hjulmand for some time, but CM Jornal claims that unless they exercise the £68.8 million (80 million euros) option in his contract, they will not be able to sign him this month.

The 24-year-old signed a summer transfer window contract with Sporting CP for a mere 20 million euros, leaving Italian team Lecce, and the Lisbon club has no intention of selling him, especially in the middle of the season.

For manager Ruben Amorim, whose club is presently leading the Liga Nos table after 16 games, Hjulmand has been a rock solid No. 6 player.

The three-cap international can now take Joao Palhinha’s place in the defensive midfield position. The Portuguese, who has been successful in the Premier League, departed the team in 2022 to join Fulham.

Do you think Manchester United should offer £68.8 million to recruit Morten Hjulmand?
