Leicester City midfielder Youri Tielemans is a target for Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag, but it is unclear whether the Belgian is one of his priorities. according to The Times

Manchester United are in advanced negotiations to acquire Barcelona midfielder Frenkie de Jong for an initial fee of around €65 million.

The Dutchman is the main target of Ten Hag and Manchester United is confident that a deal can be concluded this week.

However, the new Manchester United manager wants to add more midfielders to his roster this summer and also hopes to get Christian Eriksen free of transfer.

And it is claimed that the Dutchman has also set his eyes on Leicester midfielder Tielemans in the current transfer window.

The Belgian has a one-year contract left and Leicester are open to selling him as he is unlikely to sign a new one.

Tielemans is waiting for a club to show concrete interest in him and is willing to join one of the top clubs in the Premier League.

Ten Hag admires the Belgian and feels he can add a lot to Manchester United’s squad with his proven skill in the Premier League.

However, it is unclear how high on the list of priorities Tielemans is currently with the manager of Manchester United.

Manchester United are still in the market to add to their front line and defense this summer.
