Manchester United have been in talks with Youri Tielemans’ agent over a summer transfer, according to the latest reports today.
Youri Tielemans joined Leicester City on loan in January from Ligue One Club Monaco and the Belgian has already made a brilliant impression in the Premier League.
The 22-year-old ended the 2018-19 Premier League season with 3 absolute bangers to his name while providing 4 assists in the process from the middle of the pitch.
Meanwhile, Manchester United are in the need of a Midfielder after the departure of Ander Herrera.
Woodward and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer would prefer a young and talented midfielder who has the ability to score goals and create chances from the midfield and Tielemans fits that bill perfectly.
Kristof Terreur is a Belgian agent who is well respected and very credible when it comes to the transfer news of the Belgian players and here’s what he had to say on the matter:
“There have been talks.
“The agent’s had talks with Spurs and Man United about him.”
“Not sure he’s the first choice at both clubs either. Monaco, they want to sell him and get rid of him.”
Manchester United are also interested in the services of Adrien Rabiot who is available on a free transfer and possibly United’s first choice but Tielemans won’t be a bad option either!
“For his age he has great maturity in his game and we are very pleased with that,” Rodgers said after Leicester’s 3-0 win over Arsenal in April.
“There will be dialogue between the clubs. He’s clearly a player we would like to work with and I understand the supporters love watching a young player like that.
“I’m sure the club will do everything they possibly can to bring him in.”

The Belgian is expected to cost somewhere between 30 and 40 Million Pounds which is understandable for a player of his qualities.
Would you be willing to spend that kind of money on Youri Tielemans?
