Leicester City midfielder Youri Tielemans will reportedly be a leading transfer target for Manchester United during this summer’s window.
The Belgium international’s contract at the King Power Stadium is due to expire next June, and he is widely expected to leave the Foxes this summer in search of pastures new.
A number of clubs, including Arsenal, Liverpool and Juventus, have been linked with the 24-year-old, who has scored seven goals and registered three assists in 39 outings for Leicester this term.
However, according to Tuttosport, Man United are determined to bring him to Old Trafford in the upcoming market, with the club viewing him as the ideal midfield acquisition.
The report claims that a ‘summer divorce’ from Leicester is ‘more than likely’, as the Belgian has no intention of penning a new contract with Brendan Rodgers‘s side.
Tielemans has scored 24 goals and registered 22 assists in 147 appearances for the Foxes since arriving from Monaco in 2019.
Man United are expected to sign at least one new central midfielder this summer, as Paul Pogba prepares to leave the club on a free transfer at the end of June.
