Manchester United In Talks Over Potential Move For Youri Tielemans

Manchester United are interested in signing Youri Tielemans following his impressive debut season in the Premier League.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is believed to be a huge admirer of the 22-year-old midfielder, who spent the 2018/19 campaign on loan at Leicester City.

In fact, the club have held talks with Tielemans' agent of a potential move, according to journalist Kristof Terreur, who goes on to claim United have been in touch with his people "for more than a month."

Leicester, however, are hoping to get a deal over the line meanwhile Champions League finalists Tottenham Hotspur have also been linked with a move for the AS Monaco midfielder.

Tielemans is not short of admirers and it's easy to see why.

He made 52 appearances for club and country last season, scoring nine goals and notching a flurry of assists.

The midfielder also has an incredible CV considering his age. He made his debut for Belgian side Anderlecht in 2013, becoming the fourth-youngest player is the Belgian First Division history.

Tielemans went on to make over 150 appearances for the club before joining AS Monaco in a reported €25 million deal.

He has since made 23 appearances for his country, and was included in Belgium's World Cup squad last summer.

It is believed, however, that Tielemans wants to play Champions League football next season.

Of course, Manchester United failed to qualify for the competition after finishing sixth, so that might be a stumbling block in a potential move for the Leicester City loanee.

Do you think Tielemans would be a success at Old Trafford?
