Manchester United’s Pursuit of Roony Bardghji: A Rising Star in the Making
Manchester United’s scouting efforts have intensified as they closely monitor Copenhagen’s prodigious talent, Roony Bardghji, ahead of their upcoming Champions League encounter against Manchester City.
At just 18 years old, Bardghji has already made a significant impression, drawing attention from United following his standout performance in the UCL group stage. His memorable winner against United during a thrilling 4-3 victory for Copenhagen in November showcased his composure and skill on the field, leaving a lasting impression on both fans and scouts alike.
United’s scouting team had a firsthand experience of Bardghji’s prowess during the Atlantic Ocean Cup in Portugal, where the young winger’s abilities were on full display. This event holds particular significance for Scandinavian clubs, serving as a platform to regain momentum post-winter break.
Bardghji’s ascent with Copenhagen has been meteoric since his senior debut shortly after his 16th birthday in 2021. Within a week of his debut, he notched his first goal for the club, underscoring his precocious talent. This season alone, he has already scored 11 goals, significantly boosting his market value. Reports suggest Copenhagen is poised to demand a record fee, with estimates hovering around £17 million for the Swedish Under-21 international.
While Manchester City prepares to counter Bardghji’s threat in their upcoming fixture, United’s interest appears more than just reactionary. With the departure of Jadon Sancho, the Red Devils are actively seeking a right-winger, and Bardghji’s consistent performances have firmly placed him on their radar.
United will closely monitor Bardghji’s progress in Copenhagen’s next fixture against Molde and throughout both legs of the Copenhagen-City clash, as they assess the winger’s potential fit within their squad.
