Manchester United: Red Devils dealt potential Youri Tielemans transfer blow

Manchester United: Red Devils dealt potential Youri Tielemans transfer blow -Manchester United News

Manchester United have been dealt a potential blow to their hopes of securing a transfer deal for Leicester City midfielder Youri Tielemans. 

The Lowdown: Man United’s interest in Tielemans

The Red Devils have been linked with a move for the midfielder in the past, most recently during the summer transfer window.

With Tielemans’ current contract at Leicester set to expire at the end of the season, this will allow him to leave the club as a free agent.

However, should United still have an interest in signing him, it appears as though their chances of doing so may have taken a hit.

The Latest: Leicester confident on new Tielemans deal

According to a recent report from the Daily Mail, Leicester believe that they can reach an agreement with the Belgian to sign a new deal at the King Power Stadium.

The report adds that a new deal has been on the table for Tielemans for nearly two years, and although he has yet to sign it, the Foxes hierarchy have maintained close contact with his representatives throughout and are confident that he will put pen to paper on a new deal.

 

The Verdict: Blow for United

Across 15 league appearances this season, the 25-year-old has delivered one assist and scored three goals, one of which was described as “outrageous” by journalist Daniel Orme on Twitter.

In addition, Tielemans has made more passes into the 18-yard box (19) than any of his team-mates, while also posting the highest combined total of tackles and interceptions (46) at Leicester.

First up in this Man United World Cup quiz, how many United players are in England’s squad for Qatar 2022?

 

This highlights how impressive he is both on and off the ball and why potentially securing him as a free agent in the summer would be a big coup for United.

However, should the midfielder – who will be in action for Belgium during the World Cup in Qatar – sign a new deal at Leicester, this would diminish any chance that the Red Devils had of signing him for free in the summer.
