The midfielder has spent six months away from the Allianz Arena but is now set to rejoin Pep Guardiola’s side. The young Dane spent second half of last season on loan at FC Augsburg and will head back to the Allianz after his temporary deal expires in the coming days. The youngster scored two goals in 16 appearances at the SGL Arena.
The 19-year old, who was named in Denmark’s squad for the upcoming UEFA U21 Championship, spent the Rückrunde on loan at Bayern’s Bavarian rivals FC Augsburg, making 16 appearances. He made his debut for Bayern Munich this season, but was sent on loan to Augsburg to gain further first team experience.
Augsburg were hopeful of extending Højbjerg’s stay by one additional season after he successfully helped the club reach the Europa League, but the Danish midfielder will now head back to Bayern instead in an effort to nail down a place in Pep Guardiola’s plans before next season.
Højbjerg, who has also made five caps for the Danish senior team, will be brought back into the first team set-up under Pep Guardiola after gaining important top-flight experience at the SGL Arena, after finding opportunities limited at the Allianz despite being highly rated by the staff at SäbenerStraße
“It’s been pretty exceptional,” he told the reporters. “I came from Bayern expecting to take a step down, but also here in Augsburg I end up playing for the fun spots. We get a good result and a good placement in the league. It’s always fun to be part of something historic.”
On the other hand, Tottenham are reportedly targeting Bayern Munich teenager Højbjerg. According to German newspaper Kicker, Tottenham are one of a number of pursuing the midfielder. Speaking on interest in his services he added: “You have to talk to my agent about that, but it’s always nice when there is an interest.”
Spurs have already landed one Bundesliga youngster this summer by signing Koln defender Kevin Wimmer, but now Mauricio Pochettino could move for another in Højbjerg.
Hojbjerg, a Denmark youth international at every age level who has won five caps for the senior side, joined Bayern from Brondby in 2012. He set up Raul Bobadilla’s goal at the Allianz Arena in May as Augsburg recorded a priceless 1-0 win against the newly-crowned champions. Højbjerg came back to haunt his parent club last season too, perfectly demonstrating his ability on the pitch. “I’m pleased to come back,” he said to Kicker following the news.
