Italian giants Juventus are reportedly worried that Manchester United will win the battle to sign Anderlecht midfielder Youri Tielemans with both clubs known to be interested in the Belgian midfielder.
The 18 years old is regarded as one of the brightest talents in Europe and has been watched by a host of Premier League clubs- including Arsenal and Chelsea in the last 12 months.
Louis Van Gaal brought in Morgan Schneiderlin from Southampton and Bastian Schweinsteiger from Bavarian giants; Bayern Munich in the summer to beef up the midfield options of the Red Devils and both players have brought in added dynamism into the United midfield this season, while Michael Carrick is nearing the end of his glittering career since making the switch from Spurs to Manchester United.
Juventus is another top European team showing interest in Tielemans, but the Old Ladies are scared Manchester United could be the major stumbling block in their quest to sign the 18 years old midfielder.
