Tielemans Anderlecht

Manchester United need a creative midfielder to replace Paul Pogba at Old Trafford and the name of Youri Tielemans is in the lime light.

The Belgian international was heavily linked with a move away from Leicester last summer when he was valued at around £25million (ES). However, he ended up staying with the Foxes.

Transfer: Man United plot offer in weeks to sign £61.3million playmaker – Report

According to a report published by Sport today (news image provided below), the 25-year-old, whose contract at the King Power Stadium will expire in 7 months, is a wanted man in the market.

The media outlet have mentioned that the likes of Manchester United, Liverpool, Arsenal, Barca, Juve and Real Madrid know the quality of the player and look to secure his signing on a free transfer.

It is stated that the Gunners are in pole position to lure the Premier League star, on the other hand, the Bernabeu will only move to sign him if they fail to bring in Jude Bellingham.

Tielemans is one of the most complete midfielders in the league. He has proved his worth in the No.6, No. 8 and No. 10 positions.

He scored the winning goal of the FA Cup in the 2020-21 campaign, directly contributed in 10 goals in the Premier League last term and has netted three goals in the league this season

At Old Trafford, Erik ten Hag lacks creativity in the center of the park. McTominay, Fred and Casemiro are not creative stars and Eriksen is currently playing out of position for United.

Tielemans is in his peak years and to lure him on a bosman would be a huge coup for any side. In your view, should Man Utd move in to secure his signing?
