Manchester United have been linked with the transfer of Monaco midfielder Youri Tielemans. Tielemans spent the second half of the season on loan at Leicester and has impressed with his performances on the pitch.
He has quickly become a fans favourite scoring goals and providing assists under the tutelage of Brendan Rodgers. Manchester United are looking to swoop for the player as Monaco are understood to be open to selling him in the summer.
Leicester remains favorites as the player prefers a move to the King Power Stadium, however, Manchester United are a bigger club and this could sway the Belgium international.
Manchester United want to strengthen the midfield in the summer and Tielemans provides an inexpensive way to do so.
The 22-year-old is valued at £40 million which is a good fee for a player that could remain at the club for a long period of time. His attributes fit the Premier League with his ability to see a pass and move into the box unmarked reminiscent of Frank Lampard at Chelsea.
This transfer is one to watch out for as we expect several twists and turns in the coming weeks as more teams circle for the player.
