Manchester United could sign one of the best midfielders in the Premier League for just £25m.
United are planning a big summer and Ajax manager Erik Ten Hag is expected to fill the vacant managerial role at any moment. With the likes of Juan Mata and Paul Pogba departing at the end of this season and the jury still out on other options in midfield, it looks like some big recruits will be arriving in midfield.
However, a surprisingly cheap option is Leicester City player Youri Tielemans.
According to the Manchester Evening News (opens in a new tab)United have identified the Belgian as a potential man to fill the void. Tielemans arrived at Leicester originally on loan from Monaco before signing permanently and has suited up to become number 8 alongside James Maddison.
Tielemans could also be a profitable signing. The midfielder is nearing the end of his contract, with just one year remaining after this season, and if the Foxes are going to get something for their man, Brendan Rodgers may be forced to let him go for just £25m.
United may pay £25m for the player’s services, although Arsenal are also believed to be interested in signing him.
Tielemans is valued at £49.5 million for Transfermarkt (opens in a new tab).
