Youri Tielemans being watched by Manchester United & Chelsea

Published Add your comment

The likes of Manchester United and Chelsea are watching Anderlecht youngster Youri Tielemans, according to The Daily Mail. 

The report has suggested that Manchester City, Tottenham and Arsenal are also monitoring the highly rated teenager. The Belgian midfielder - who is just 17-years-old - starred in last season's Champions League and looks set to have an extremely bright future. 

It remains to be seen, however, as to whether the likes of Manchester United and Chelsea can bring him to the Premier League this summer. The Premier League clubs could also be rivalled by Italian duo Juventus and Roma, with reports suggesting that both clubs have made enquiries about his signature. 

A bidding war between the seven interested clubs could start sometime soon, as Anderlecht attempt to keep hold of their starlet. It's not yet known as to whether Manchester United, Chelsea and Co. would move him straight into the first team if he was signed, but he certainly looks like one for the future. 

It looks set to be a busy summer for Manchester United and Chelsea, and the youngster could make a move to one of the sides in the transfer window. North London duo Arsenal and Tottenham - as well as Manchester City - could have something to say about that, however.
