Manchester United are in the need of a strong summer overhaul, and at the moment, it looks like it could be a busy window for the Premier League club. They are set to lose Ander Herrera and Juan Mata for free, with Paul Pogba too, being linked with a move to Real Madrid.

United are believed to go into the market in search for at least two defenders, a winger, and a midfielder to replace Herrera.

The Red Devils, alongside Tottenham Hotspur, Arsenal, and Chelsea have struggled to keep in pace with Manchester City and Liverpool this season.

Club legend Gary Neville has urged the Mancunian giants as well as the likes of Arsenal and Spurs to sign 21-year-old Leicester City player Youri Tielemans.

The promising youngster joined Leicester on a temporary deal from Monaco in the January transfer window, and has made an impressive impact in the Premier League. He has netted three goals, besides making four assists in 11 appearances.

Leicester are keen to permanently sign the Belgium international in the summer of 2019, but Neville feels that some of these big clubs need to shape up their midfield, and therefore, Tielemans is an option.

He highlighted that Leicester will have to compete with the big clubs for the player, as he stated (via Sky Sports): “I think the issue that Leicester will have is that there are midfields in the top six that need strengthening.

“Twenty-one-year-old, available they say for £40m. He’s proved himself in the Premier League, almost like a dress rehearsal at Leicester. Leicester could struggle to keep him because of the fact that other clubs may want him.”
