Manchester United identify Morten Hjulmand as priority target

Manchester United are reportedly looking to sign Morten Hjulmand as a priority target in the summer transfer window.

According to a report from Give Me Sport, Morten Hjulmand has a £69 million release clause in his contract with Sporting CP, and Barcelona are keen on securing his signature as well. It will be interesting to see if Manchester United can win the race for the player.

The Denmark international midfielder could prove to be a useful acquisition for Manchester United and the Red Devils must do everything in their power to get the deal done. Signing a quality defensive midfielder should be one of their priorities. Manchester United have been quite poor in the middle of the park this past season, and someone like Hjulmand will add defensive cover, physicality, and presence in the midfield.

The 24-year-old could be attracted to the idea of competing in the Premier League, and the opportunity to join Manchester United will be hard to turn down. The Red Devils are one of the biggest clubs in the world and they could provide him with the opportunity to compete for major trophies.

Hjulmand could transform Manchester United midfield

The midfielder has proven himself in Portuguese football, and he has the physicality and technical attributes to adapt to the Premier League as well. It will be interesting to see Manchester United are prepared to meet his valuation and bring him to England in the coming weeks.

They will have to improve their squad if they want to challenge the likes of Manchester City and Arsenal next year. Both clubs are miles ahead of them in terms of development and quality. The Red Devils will need multiple quality signs this summer in order to truly match up to the Premier League elite.

Hjulmand will certainly be a wise investment. He will protect the back four and break down opposition attacks. His arrival will also allow the creative players to operate with more freedom in the midfield.

Ideally, Manchester United should be able to get to deal done even if Barcelona are keen on the player. The Spanish outfit are going through financial difficulties and it is highly unlikely that they will be able to beat Manchester United financially.
