Sampdoria could face a tough bidding war for rising Danish star Joachim Andersen.
The 22-year-old is reportedly being chased down by a host of European clubs. And the latest to enter the fray is Manchester United.
Mourinho missed out on getting a marquee player this summer, but could compensate for that loss this summer.
United’s hierarchy have reportedly backed the former Chelsea manager ahead of the winter transfer and Joachim Andersen name has been inked into the manager’s shopping list.
News outlet La Repubblica, revealed Old Trafford already have sights on the player, as he has been under the watchful eyes of United’s scouts.
The report, cited from Calciomercato also claimed that Mourinho could walk into a deal here, as he has been hugely convinced of the player’s availability.
Interests for the Denmark international is starting to rise with interest from Italian outfits Inter Milan and Juventus.
But the tougher fight will be against Arsenal who had earlier registered their interest in the 22-year-old, before United joined the line of suitors.
Andersen could command a sum around 30 million euros, but it is likely that figure could climb higher with interests projected to rise before the window next year.
