Manchester United target Roony Bardghji has opened up about a potential transfer to the Premier League, as he has been linked to Chelsea, Tottenham, and other clubs. The 18-year-old’s performances for FC Copenhagen have turned heads this season, with 11 goals in 30 games, and this has caught the attention of bigger clubs.
Bardhji has opened up about the possibility of moving to the Premier League in a recent interview with Sportbladet. He revealed (via Metro):
“My main focus is here [at Copenhagen]. There is not much more to say. All talk is gone. I try to do as well as possible for FCK. I am happy that I am here. I also chose to stay here. It feels good. It’s fun to think about [a possible move to Tottenham]. You never know, it could happen. Hard to say now.”
Bardghji’s journey in professional football began at Malmo before his rapid development and impact at Copenhagen put him in the limelight. Manchester United have shown significant interest in his services, and according to Metro, the winger’s progress is being tracked by the club’s new minority owners.
Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea have also registered their interest in Bardghji, which will mean a potential bidding war for his services. Currently, the 18-year-old is looking forward to Copenhagen’s upcoming Champions League match against Manchester City (via Metro):
“It’s a tough match but incredibly fun. It is big for the club, the players and the fans to play a round of 16 in the Champions League. We have great chances. We have shown at home at the Park that we can measure up to them. We drew against Manchester City last season. It is not impossible.”
