Manchester United are reported to have sent scout to watch Anderlecht youngster Youri Tielemans feature for the Belgium outfit against Qarabag in Thursday’s Europa League, according to reports.
The Mirror say United are lining up a massive bid for Tielemans in the January transfer window. 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 Manchester City, Arsenal and Chelsea in the last 12 months.
United appears to be leading the race for the player’s signature as a bid is set to be ready for the youngster who has twice been named Belgium young player of the year.
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.
Tielemans can play in the defensive midfield position or as an attacking midfielder but he is majorly known to be a central midfield player.
The Belgian would leave Anderlecht if a bid of around £30Milllion is being offered for his services in the January transfer window.
