Tottenham Hotspur star Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg has been linked with a move to Real Madrid, and Jose Enrique believes it would be a mistake to sell him.

Spurs have had an excellent transfer window so far. They’ve signed seven new players, but the priority now appears to be outgoings. Hojbjerg could well be one player who’ll be allowed to leave.

Tottenham told selling Hojbjerg to Real Madrid would be a mistake

Real Madrid confirmed yesterday that a deal has been agreed with Manchester United for the transfer of Casemiro. The Brazilian is set to join the Red Devils very soon, and he’s a fantastic signing for them.

Reports have claimed that the Champions League winners will dive into the market to sign a replacement, and Spurs star Hojbjerg is apparently a player Carlo Ancelotti would like to bring in.

Back in April, it was claimed that Tottenham are willing to sell Hojbjerg, who joined Spurs just two years ago from Southampton for £15 million (Goal).

With Real Madrid reportedly keen, a move could well be possible, but Enrique believes selling the ‘incredible‘ Dane would be a huge mistake.

Addressing the rumours, the Spaniard wrote in his Instagram Stories: “I really like him (Hojbjerg) as a player. To be honest, it will be the perfect replacement for Real Madrid for Casemiro.

“But, I don’t think Tottenham are going to sell him. It will be a mistake in my opinion.”

TBR View:

Hojbjerg really is a fantastic player.

He has mostly been excellent for Tottenham since he joined them in 2020, and he has started this season really well too. However, there is a possibility that Spurs could cash in on him if a good offer arrives in the coming days.

Rodrigo Bentancur has settled in really well at Tottenham, while new signing Yves Bissouma is expected to be the first-choice in the middle of the park. Add Oliver Skipp into the mix and Spurs have a really strong midfield.

That could convince Antonio Conte to let Hojbjerg leave, but we agree with Enrique here – selling a player of his experience could prove to be a huge mistake.
