Manchester United enter Tielemans race

FC Barcelona and Chelsea have previously been linked with Belgium starlet

Manchester United are the latest side to be linked with making a transfer move for Anderlecht star Youri Tielemans.

The young Belgium midfielder has previously been linked with mega-money moves to La Liga and Premier League champions, FC Barcelona and Chelsea.

However, United are the latest side to be linked with making a formal move for the teenager.

The 18-year-old has been watched over the past few months by several interested parties, and due to his versatility in the midfield, he’s predicted a big future by his home country.

Tielemans can play as a holding-midfielder or can be deployed in an advanced role too.

United’s Interest

Louis van Gaal is starting to plan for the future at Old Trafford, despite stating he’s leaving in 2017, and with both Michael Carrick and Bastian Schweinsteiger ageing, now is the time for Van Gaal to make changes.

The Anderlecht teenager made his Champions League debut at 16 and is tipped for a bright future.
