Manchester United are still pursuing a move for Leicester City midfielder Youri Tielemans, according to an update from journalist Ben Jacobs.
The Lowdown: Tielemans impresses for Leicester
The Foxes have had a season to forget under Brendan Rodgers, failing to build on last season’s FA Cup triumph – in which the Belgian scored the winner – and falling well short of challenging for Champions League football.
The 24-year-old has been linked with a move to United numerous times in recent months and now a new update has emerged.
Is Maguire good enough for Manchester United?
Yes, he's just having a bad time!
No, he needs to go!
The Latest: United in the race
Taking to Twitter, Jacobs claimed the Red Devils are still tracking Tielemans, who is available for £25million, but they are not alone in expressing an interest, with Arsenal seen as their main competition:
“Manchester United and Arsenal continue to pursue Youri Tielemans. 25m is a bargain price.”
The Verdict: Ideal summer addition?
Midfield is an area of the pitch where United lack genuine guile, with the likes of Fred and Scott McTominay hard-working but technically limited players, registering just five assists between them in the league this season.
With Paul Pogba out of contract this summer and likely to move on, Tielemans could be an ideal replacement, coming in as a younger alternative who could add more creativity and energy in the middle of the park.
