Youri Tielemans has been a primary target for Brendan Rodgers this summer following a successful loan spell during the second half of last season.

Rodgers is keen on keeping the Belgium midfielder on a permanent basis as he looks to try and push the Foxes into a European spot.

Leicester will feel hopeful about securing the signature of the 22-year-old after launching a £36 million bid, as well as the fact Tielemans has recently said it is ‘unlikely’ he will stay at Monaco.

While Rodgers would have been feeling hopeful, it appears Manchester United too are also very keen on signing the midfielder, according to reports from Belgium, cited by the Daily Star.

United and Spurs cool Tielemans interest

United and Spurs cool Tielemans interest Youri Tielemans had a very successful second half of the season with Leicester and has been attracting a lot of interest. However, according to Belgian outlet Het Laatste Nieuws, cited by Inside Futbol, Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur are not pushing to sign the 22-year-old this summer. According to the report, United have targets ahead of the youngster and he is further down the pecking order. The midfielder enjoyed the second half of last season at the King Power, featuring 13 times for the Foxes, scoring three goals and providing four assists.

MANCHESTER UNITED are considering a move for Youri Tielemans this summer. The 21-year-old has performed well on loan at Leicester City Tielemans is on a six-month loan at Leicester . But Belgian publication HLN understand a permanent move to King Power Stadium is far from a formality.

It is reported that United are keen on drafting in a new central midfielder, with the future of Paul Pogba still in doubt. The Frenchman told reporters in Tokyo recently that he could leave Old Trafford this summer:

“After this season and all that has happened, and it was my best season, I think it might be a good time for me to to take up a new challenge elsewhere. I think about that: a new challenge elsewhere.”

With Pogba’s future at United looking like it’s coming to a close, it has been suggested that they themselves have also made a £36 million bid for Tielemans as a potential replacement.

However, according to the report, Leicester may still have an advantage by using Adrien Silva, who could go the opposite way as part of a deal.

Silva featured 15 times last season for Monaco on loan and the French club are interested in signing him permanently this summer too after their relegation battle in Ligue 1.

Leicester City are in talks with AS Monaco over a permanent move for midfielder Youri Tielemans. The Belgium international impressed during his short loan spell with the Foxes, and is said to be keen on a permanent move to the King Power Stadium this summer. According to Sky Sports, Leicester are in talks with Monaco and discussions are said to be going well, but the deal is complicated by interest in Adrien Silva. The Portugal international was part of the loan swap deal that saw Tielemans move to Leicester, and Monaco are reportedly keen on signing the midfielder permanently, meaning the Foxes could use Silva as part of a player plus cash offer for Tielemans.
