Manchester United sell youngster Hansen-Aaroen to Werder Bremen

Manchester United have agreed to a deal for teenage midfielder Isak Hansen-Aaroen to join Werder Bremen on a permanent basis.

The 19-year-old attacking midfielder arrived at Old Trafford from Tromso in 2020 but is yet to feature for the Red Devils’ first team.

A highly-rated Norway under-21 international, Hansen-Aaroen had entered the final six months of his contract with United, who were keen to extend his stay with the club.

However, reports had suggested there were significant differences between club and player in negotiations over a new deal, leading United to become open to the prospect of a sale.

On Thursday, United confirmed Hansen-Aaroen was joining Bundesliga side Bremen in a permanent deadline-day move, subject to international clearance.

It is believed that the deal features add-on clauses and entitles United to a cut of any future transfer fee, while also netting them a higher upfront fee than they would have received via a compensation package if he was allowed to run his contract down.

Ole Werner’s Bremen are currently ninth in the Bundesliga table after 19 games, eight points adrift of the top six but boasting an 11-point cushion to the relegation play-off position.
