Man United ‘exploring’ possibility of moving for Youri Tielemans

Man United are weighing up a possible move for Leicester City’s Youri Tielemans.

There’s no doubt that Frenkie de Jong was always Erik ten Hag’s number one midfield target going into this summer transfer window. The links to the Dutch midfielder have been extremely frequent.

However, disaster may well strike, meaning Manchester United could possibly have to look elsewhere. Ten Hag will (hopefully) have a list of De Jong alternatives in that situation.

Leicester City’s Youri Tielemans is seemingly one of those other options.

That’s according to Fabrizio Romano anyway, who was speaking to Give Me Sport on Monday. He states that United ‘have been exploring’ the possibility of moving for the 25-year-old Premier League midfielder.

“It’s true that Manchester United have been exploring this possibility also months ago.” Romano said.

“It was in February or March when they were exploring the possibilities and the conditions of this Tielemans deal.”

Tielemans is certainly an interesting option. The midfielder is out of contract in one year, meaning Leicester City have a decision to make on his future. Do they risk losing the Belgian for free next summer? Or cash in now for a lower fee?

Either way, this is absolutely a deal United should be looking into. Tielemans has Premier League experience and has displayed an ability to come up clutch when it matters most.

There’s no doubt that the Old Trafford club would face stiff competition in pursuit of Tielemans, while it could be tough to lure him to Manchester without Champions League football on the table.

To read that United’s interest dates back to February or March is also intriguing. A keenness to sign Tielemans could have been there before Ten Hag was appointed manager. Whether or not the former Ajax boss would like to work with the central midfielder remains to be seen.
