Manchester United need Leicester Metropolis golden boy in a £56m deal
Manchester United should be on a mission in this transfer window. The final against Villarreal once again showed United’s weakness. When looking to the bank to bring someone up, there aren’t any good options.
Dan James, Van De Beek, even Mata or Matic didn’t have the best impact on Manchester United. That loss was a breaking point for Manchester United and the frustration was evident on Ole’s face.
A board meeting took place the very next day. Key figures sat down with the manager to discuss the way forward. The club needs 3 good signings to add depth to its squad. A right winger, a midfielder and a good defender.
A change from Jadon Sancho is pending again. In the defensive areas, United are hoping for Raphael Varane. In midfield, United are focused on Youri Tielemans from Leicester City.
But United are not the only one interested in the Belgian’s services. Wijnaldum’s departure has left a void and Liverpool are looking for a replacement. Tielemans certainly meets the criteria for the former master. He has scored 9 goals and 6 assists this season.
The player has proven himself as a solid midfield presence in the Premier League. He led his team to the cup with a miracle goal against Chelsea in the FA Cup final. Both United and Liverpool want someone like that on their squads.
Manchester United could benefit from Leicester City failing to qualify for the Champions League
Leicester City will surely be disappointed with their finish in the Premier League. They lost another top 4 position after being in the top 4 for most of the season. They spent 325 days in the top 4, the highest for any team in the league.
It wasn’t all bad for the foxes, however, as they managed to get their hands on a trophy. Although it will be very painful to miss the Champions League. Not only does it bring more revenue, but it is another big reason for players to stay.
United is interested in Youri Tielemans, according to Belgian journalist Sven Claes. Leicester City holds all cards, because Tielemans still has a contract until 2023. Whether the player wants to leave also remains a mystery.
In such a scenario, the offer has to be lucrative enough for Leicester to agree. Former Leicester City striker Kevin Phillips pondered the scenario. “I think everyone is available for the right price.”
“I don’t think Brendan Rodgers would let Tielemans go. However, when Liverpool or United knock on the knock, the player will listen. “At this point the lure of Champions League football becomes a factor in the player’s decision.
Leicester has done expensive business in the past. Harry Maguire and Ben Chilwell are prime examples of this. If United or Liverpool take their interest seriously, they may have to pay a lot. Almost £ 60 million would be a fair price for Tielemans.
