Man United officials watch Sporting CP star at Euro 2024

Manchester United were keeping tabs on Sporting CP midfielder Morten Hjulmand during Denmark’s 1-1 draw against England at the European Championship this week.

The Red Devils are aiming to sign a new midfielder this summer, and their plans could intensify if Casemiro leaves in the coming weeks.

West Ham United’s Edson Alvarez has been linked with the club, but United are reportedly interested in signing Hjulmand.

Record (page 23) claims representatives from United and Tottenham Hotspur were present in Frankfurt and had a close eye on Hjulmand who scored a superb equaliser.

The midfielder has a release clause worth £68 million in his contract. Sporting may only contemplate his future if the valuation is met.

Hjulmand to Man Utd speculation could be agent-driven

United are in the transfer market for a new midfielder, but it is unlikely that they will spend excessively.

With a limited budget, the onus could be on player sales before the financial year ends on June 30.

A new centre-back is the club’s priority. Everton’s Jarrad Branthwaite is the top target with Leny Yoro and Goncalo Inacio among the alternative options.

The Red Devils are also aiming to bolster their strike force. Talks are advanced for Bologna striker Joshua Zirkzee. The Dutchman could decide on his next club after Euro 2024.

A midfielder could be the club’s third preference in the transfer window. It is unlikely they will pay more than £50m given their financial constraints.
