Norwegian Starlet Speaks Out After City And United Both Scout Him

Bodo/Glimt midfielder Hakon Evjen has said that it would be a difficult choice if he was presented with the opportunity to sign for either Manchester City or Manchester United.

Both Manchester clubs had scouts in attendance to see the 19-year-old in action against Stromsgodset on Monday night. The teenager scored twice in a 3-1 win, no doubt impressing observers with his performance.

Asked after the game about whether he would favour joining either City or United, he replied:

“If you want to hear something, you can chat with my agent. I don’t know, we’ll see. Nothing has come yet, but I have always been a United boy. Of course, City is one of the world’s best football teams. A choice is difficult.”

Evjen is a right-winger but he can also play in the centre of midfield. He made his senior debut playing in the second tier of Norwegian football for Bodo/Glimt at the back end of the 2017 season.

He began to play more regularly during his first full campaign, making 17 appearances in all competitions. This year, he has become a fully established first-team player, playing 14 matches so far, scoring six goals and providing three assists.
