Manchester United are monitoring the situation of Youri Tielemans.

AS Monaco starlet Youri Tielemans has made an impressive impact in the Premier League since sealing his loan move to Leicester City back in January.

The 21-year-old has done a splendid job at the King Power outfit, and the Foxes are already said to be hoping to hold onto his services beyond the summer.

As per reports from the player’s homeland, the Belgium international is also open to extend his stay in Leicester, although interest from other English giants might just end up changing his mind.

Terreur wrote on Twitter: “Youri Tielemans is open for an extended stay at Leicester, but considering his options. Tottenham and Man United are still sniffing around – he’s been on their future target list for a while.”

Sky Sports pundit Gary Neville echoed similar views earlier this week as well, when he claimed that the top six clubs in the Premier League should be preparing to jump at the chance of signing the youngster up.

Speaking of Tielemans, Neville stated: “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.”
