Alasdair Gold has predicted that any decision from Tottenham regarding the future of Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg would depend on the offer they received. 

Hojbjerg was recently linked with a potential move to the Santiago Bernabeu after Real lost Casemiro’s services to Manchester United (The Telegraph).

The Brazilian’s exit has broken up the successful trio he forged alongside Luka Modric and Toni Kroos, with Madrid said to have identified Hojbjerg as a possible replacement. 

However, Madrid have already signed the highly-rated Frenchman, Aurelien Tchouameni, from AS Monaco in a deal worth £85.3million for the holding midfield role (The Guardian).

Tottenham have reportedly held talks with Hojbjerg following Los Blancos’ emergence as a potential suitor. Spurs are said to have even received assurance from the midfielder about staying at N17 beyond the deadline day (Football Insider).

Gold has now provided his own take on the situation, pointing out that Madrid’s interest is a testament to how important Hojbjerg is, and that any potential exit would depend on the amount Spurs were offered.

Gold said in his Q&A session on Football.London: “It would depend on the amount. I think people overlook what Hojbjerg brings to the side sometimes because he’s not the silkiest player compared to others.

“Spurs don’t have many leaders and the Dane certainly is one, he’s got a winning mentality and his contribution often goes unnoticed. That Real Madrid are reportedly interested speaks volumes as well.”

Spurs Web Opinion:

Hojbjerg has enjoyed great chemistry with Rodrigo Bentancur in midfield and dismantling that may not be a wise decision, especially when Yves Bissouma is still being integrated into the team. Oliver Skipp, meanwhile, has had some injury problems giving Spurs all the more reason to keep hold of Hojbjerg.
