Reports states that Manchester United sent their Belgian south to watch Youri Tielemans square out for Anderletch against Tottenham Hotspur in the Europa league on Thursday.
The 18 years old is regarded as one of the hottest young talent in world football and is being courted by Europe’s top guns like Barcelona, Chelsea and Dortmund.
According to report on the Daily Mail, United are trying to lure the Belgian teenager to Old Trafford. The teenager can play in the holding midfield role or in an advance role and has an eye for goal. He is touted as a long time replacement for the ageing midfield duo of Bastian Schweinsteiger and Michael Carrick in their 30s.
United will have to table an offer close to the same amount that brought Anthony Martial to Old Trafford if they are to get their target in the January transfer window or wait in the summer when other teams will also be ready to cash in thereby pushing the sign on fee further than it should.
