Belgian announces Manchester United interest in signing £50 million rated Premier League star
Belgian journalist Sven Claes has claimed that Manchester United are interested in signing Leicester star Youri Tielemans.
The 24-year-old enjoyed a terrific second season for Leicester, not missing a single Premier League game, though he could not stop them slipping out of the top four on the final day
But Tielemans wrote himself into the Foxes history books with a stunning strike that won his side the FA Cup, but his performances has led to speculation that he could be set for a Foxes departure
The Belgium international has been mooted as a potential replacement for Georginio Wijnaldum at Anfield after the Dutchman failed to agree a new contract at the club and left for PSG.
But there is also interest from rivals Man United, as well as an unnamed La Liga giant, according to Belgian journalist Sven Claes, He told Empire of the Kop: “It will be a very difficult decision for Tielemans. The tears speak for themselves after receiving the POTY award two weeks ago.
“When he’ll play a good Euros I expect him to be leaving yes. He’s ready for a new challenge/next step – and I also believe that.
“It’s an absolute talent with an excellent mentality on and off the pitch.
“A lot of clubs like Man U and a Spanish top team already want him.
“He had it difficult in the past at AS Monaco, but at Leicester everyone saw his real qualities again. I think we’ll hear soon more about his near future.”
Tielemans is a special player, but why would he want to leave Leicester Right now?
