Tielemans, Six Sports

Multiple reports have suggested that Ten Hag is interested in Leicester midfielder Yuri Tielemans. Tielemans is one of the players Ten Hag wants at Old Trafford as a midfield option.

Tielemans has only one year left on his contract with Leicester. And according to the Mail, he will cost somewhere around £25 million. This is a bargain for anybody who wants to sign the midfielder. Tielemans cost Leicester a whopping £40 million.

However, it is very hard for United to pass up an opportunity to sign a player of Tielemans caliber. He is only 25 years of age and amazingly consistent. Now, the manager that he works with is going to determine his career further. This is why working with Ten Hag is an attractive offer for Tielemans. Ten Hag extracts the best from all his players.

It is unclear how big of a priority the midfielder is for United and Ten Hag. However, with a bunch of midfielders departing Old Trafford some new signings are necessary. Paul Pogba and Juan Mata are leaving the club this summer. Paul Pogba is set to join Juventus this summer on a free transfer.

Apart from United, Arsenal, and Tottenham have also expressed their desire for the midfielder. However, this interest was short-lived. Arsenal have focused on other transfer targets such as Fabio Viera and Gabriel Jesus. Tottenham have also moved away from the midfielder. This transfer widow, they have acquired Yves Bissouma from Brighton and Ivan Perisic from Inter.

Ten Hag is in the market to look for midfielders. The departure of Pogba and Mata has put united in panic mode to secure new midfield signings. However, Yuri TIelemans is a good long-term option for United. United are also pursuing the Danish midfielder Christian Eriksen as a midfield option.
