Youri Tielemans is giving serious thought to a move to Manchester United as the Red Devils look to rival Leicester City for the midfielder’s signature.
Tielemans impressed in a half-season loan spell with Leicester after arriving from Monaco in January, and the Belgian is keen to stay in the Premier League.
Brendan Rodgers remains hopeful of convincing Tielemans to make his switch to Leicester permanent, but with Monaco setting out a €40m valuation, the Foxes may be priced out of the deal.
According to Belgian outlet HLN, former Anderlecht man Tielemans is now a genuine target for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who is looking to follow up United’s acquisition of Dan James from Swansea with more young talent. United have resumed contact with Tielemans’ entourage and will be hoping to persuade him to sign.
The report claims that Tielemans would have been happy to return to Leicester next season, but the possibility of joining United has forced him to re-think his potential decision.
