Manchester United are set to do battle with Tottenham Hotspurs for the signature of Belgian and Leicester City sturdy midfielder Youri Tielemans , reports Sky Sports.
Tielemans arrived the King Power Stadium from Monaco in the January of 2019 on a loan deal but he seem to have surpassed expectations. His barnstorming display for the Foxes has been noticed by several clubs in the Premier League including Spurs and United.
Leicester are interested in making the deal for the midfielder a permanent one but they face stern opposition. Monaco are willing to offload the 22-year-old star but they are likely going to sell him to the highest bidder.
Ander Herrera has called time on his spell with Man United, forcing the club to be on the lookout for a midfielder in his stead and Tieleman may just be the one to replace him.
Meanwhile, Tottenham have completed their Stadium project and it is widely believed they would have funds available to spend in the transfer window.
