In the latest transfer news, Manchester United is reportedly eyeing Sporting’s defensive midfielder Morten Hjulmand as a future prospect for their team.

According to Portuguese outlet Record, negotiations have already begun for the Danish international, who has a significant £68million release clause in his current contract.

As per the report, United, understanding the terms of the deal, knows that they need to meet the £68million price tag to secure the 24-year-old’s services. Sporting, on their part, is keen to retain Hjulmand and are considering offering him the role of captain in an effort to persuade him to stay.

The situation at Sporting has led to this move, as reported by Record. With Neto nearing the end of his career, Coates facing an uncertain future, and Inacio being eyed by major European clubs, Hjulmand is being considered for a leadership role under coach Amorim for the upcoming season.

At Old Trafford, there is a growing need for a solid defensive midfielder. Although Casemiro, the current primary play breaker, has been effective, his best years are behind him.

Amrabat, on loan from Fiorentina, has failed to deliver consistent performances since his arrival.

Thus, the addition of Hjulmand, who is a key player for Liga Nos leaders, is seen as a crucial move for Manchester United.
