According to The Telegraph, Real Madrid is reportedly eyeing Tottenham’s Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg as a possible replacement for Casemiro, who is on his way to Manchester United.
The Danish centre midfielder is reportedly a favourite of Los Blancos manager Carlo Ancelotti, who attempted to recruit him while he was an Everton player.
According to the report, Madrid is considering making an offer for the Spurs player, but it’s not obvious if Tottenham would be willing to let Hojbjerg go.
It is rumoured that Conte would expect a replacement before the summer transfer window shuts if the Lilywhites do sell one of their top choices in the middle of the field.
Hojbjerg, Rodrigo Bentancur, Oliver Skipp, and Yves Bissouma are the current centre midfield options for Tottenham, while youthful Harvey White has been present in the first squad.
Man United’s pursuit of Casemiro, one of their current senior midfield alternatives, has sparked Real Madrid’s interest in Hojbjerg.
Tottenham would simply upset their team for pointless money now that the season has already begun. Given the current state of La Liga’s finances, Real Madrid is unlikely to pay a significant sum, thus I anticipate Hojbjerg will remain in his current position.
