Football News Update: Danish Star Hjulmand Impresses at Euro 2024, Linked with Premier League Move to Manchester United

In the ongoing excitement of Euro 2024, Denmark’s Morten Hjulmand has caught the attention of former Manchester United defender Paul Parker, who is urging the Red Devils to sign the talented midfielder from Sporting Lisbon this summer.

Hjulmand, the 25-year-old Denmark international, has been making waves at the European championship, scoring a brilliant equalizing goal against England in Denmark’s 1-1 draw with the Three Lions. This performance, coupled with his impressive season for Sporting Lisbon in Portugal, has led to speculation of a potential move to the Premier League, with Manchester United reportedly “preparing to advance” for the midfielder and his teammate Goncalo Inacio.

“He became captain in Serie A at the age of 22, so that speaks of a kid with huge leadership qualities. Those are precisely the leadership qualities that Manchester United could use,” Parker commented.

Sporting Lisbon is said to be demanding €80 million to part ways with Hjulmand, whom they consider one of their “untouchable” players. According to Parker, the youngster possesses the leadership qualities that Manchester United could greatly benefit from under the management of Erik ten Hag.

The former United defender also drew comparisons between Hjulmand and Casemiro, noting that the Danish midfielder’s well-rounded skill set, including his ball control, strength in duels, and unwavering commitment, would be a valuable asset to the Red Devils.

Furthermore, Parker believes that Hjulmand’s potential partnership with fellow Danes Christian Eriksen and Rasmus Hojlund, who are already at Manchester United, could prove to be a winning formula.

“Eriksen has a completely different freedom in the national team than he does at Manchester United, and you can see now that he is still a class player. I think Hjulmand has been a big reason for freeing up Eriksen so he can move further up the pitch for Denmark. He just hasn’t had the opportunity to do that at Manchester United because they haven’t had any form of balance.”

With the summer transfer window approaching, football enthusiasts will eagerly await to see if Manchester United heeds Parker’s advice and makes a move for the highly-rated Morten Hjulmand, potentially bolstering their midfield with a Danish triumvirate that could inject the leadership and dynamism the team has been seeking.
