Leicester City

United could scupper Foxes Tielemans hopes

4th April 2019, 10:32 by Craig Smithson

Manchester United will reportedly look to snatch Leicester City's loan man Youri Tielemans when the summer transfer window opens.

The 21-year-old moved to the Foxes from Monaco in January on a six-month loan deal that saw Adrien Silva go in the opposite direction and he has put in a series of superb displays for the East Midlanders.

The Belgium international has started seven Premier League games and provided the pass for Jamie Vardy to tuck away Leicester's second goal as they beat Bournemouth 2-0 on Saturday.

Afterwards, boss Brendan Rodgers stressed that he would happily sign Tielemans on a permanent basis, but added that the situation was out of his hands.

And, reports have emerged that United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is looking to sign the player with the possibility of Spanish midfield star Ander Herrera departing Old Trafford for Paris Saint-Germain on a free contract in the summer.

That news will be a blow to Leicester given that they could not compete financially with United in any bidding war and Tielemans would no doubt feel he will have a better chance of winning silverware with the Red Devils.
