Manchester United identify Belgian superstar as Carrick successor

TielemansManchester United fans are excited to see Louis Van Gaal preparing for the long-term future at Old Trafford after reading reports at the weekend which stated the Red Devils are eyeing a key addition to their squad.

The Daily Mail say United are keen on bringing Anderlecht star Youri Tielemans to the Premier League, joining the likes of Chelsea, Barcelona and Borussia Dortmund in the chase- all of whom have scouted the teenager in recent months.

18-year-old Tielemans is capable of adopting a defensive or more advanced role in the midfield, having made his Champions League debut at the age of just 16, and United see him as the ideal successor to Michael Carrick’s spot in midfield.

Tielemans is set to become the latest impressive youngster to move to Manchester United this year, following Memphis Depay and Anthony Martial’s arrival in the summer; a duo that set United back over £50m.

United fans, would Youri Tielemans provide a huge boost to your midfield? Let us know below in the comments!
