Leicester City midfielder Youri Tielemans is a target for Manchester United. The team from Old Trafford seems to need such a midfielder in team, and he would be of great importance to them. Tielemans showed how good he is in the Premier League, and United's leaders are already familiar with his qualities.
However, Tielemans is frustrated by the rumors about his new club in an interview with the Belgian media. There are many clubs in the game, but he seems to have ambitions to stay in Leicester. "I try not to think about it much and focus on my own performance, it works well," Tielemans told Belgian outlet Het Belang van Limburg earlier this year, as quoted by manchestereveningnews.
"But it's actually amazing how much they talk about my future. Every day they name a different club. "I have the feeling that people think that after this season I will be out of contract when I still have one year left.
I feel good here, I like living here, my children go to school here. I'm happy both outside and inside football. And Leicester have ambition."
Youri Tielemans and his future
Tielemans confirmed that he would like to stay, but it seems that it is not a definitive decision and that if there is a specific offer, he could leave Leicester.
There are many offers Youri will have to consider, but at this moment the most important thing for him is his family, so the family will have a big role in what Tielemans will decide. Maybe that's why Manchester United could be a good option.
"I am very calm about [my future]. My contract expires in 2023 and it's not that I absolutely want to leave. I haven't made my decision yet. If I have to stay another year, I will gladly do so. The club has been really great towards me.
They remain very professional, just like me. That will not change. "There are talks between the club and my advisors. That will remain so. It's not that I'm ignoring the club. I will study my options in the summer and make a decision.
My family is the most important to me. I'm not going somewhere where I know my family isn't happy. As a father of two children, you have to think about that, too." There are still two months left until the end of the transfer window. Until then, a lot can change, and it will be interesting to follow the story around Tielemans.
