Brighton next club to join race for winger wanted by Sir Jim Ratcliffe after heroics against Man United

Brighton and Hove Albion are reportedly monitoring winger Roony Bardghji after the 17-year-old netted for FC Copenhagen in the win over Manchester United.

Erik ten Hag’s side looked to be cruising in that game against FC Copenhagen but two late goals, including one from Roony Bardghji, were enough for the Danish side to hang on to victory.

Since his last-minute heroics against the three-time Champions League winners, Bardghji has been linked with a host of Europe’s top clubs as it seems his time in Denmark may well be coming to an end.

Sir Jim Ratcliffe’s OGC Nice were reportedly interested according to The Sun but there haven’t been any Manchester United links yet with the young winger.

Brighton’s interest

To add to this, Roberto De Zerbi’s Brighton & Hove Albion are now also reportedly in the running for the teenager’s signature, according to the plbold.dk podcast, which is usually a sign of a quality player.

The South Coast side has contributed to the success of players like Kaoru Mitoma, Moises Caicedo, and Alexis Mac Allister in the Premier League and they might be hoping to do the same with Bardghji.

Whether Ratcliffe would get him to Nice with a view to the winger moving to United in the future remains to be seen and this would be allowed by UEFA unless it was a loan deal according to The Sun.


United missing out

Were the Red Devils to miss out to Brighton, it would be the latest indication of where the club are going wrong in the transfer market.

The winger who has been dubbed the ‘Swedish Messi’ may well have struck the killer blow to United’s ambitions of qualifying for the Champions League knockout stages.

A minimum of four points would be needed for the Red Devils from their final two group games otherwise it will be the end of their, rather poor, European adventure.

The Danish podcast doesn’t state how much Copenhagen would want for the teenager, who condemned United to this fate, but nevertheless, he looks to be a big prospect and one the Red Devils really should be looking at.
