United target Tielemans as Pogba replacement
Manchester United will move in for Youri Tielemans who has completed a loan at Leicester City from AS Monaco, should Paul Pogba leave this summer, according to the Independent.
Pogba is apparently frustrated with United’s inability to seriously challenge for the Premier League title in the near future. Real Madrid, who have already secured the services of striker Luka Jović and are close to signing Eden Hazard from Chelsea as well, remain the Frenchman’s first-choice suitors. However, Juventus are also keen on bringing their former player back to Turin, and Pogba himself isn’t opposed to that option either.
Should any move materialize when it comes to Pogba, United will need a creative influence in the middle of the park, and they’ve identified Tielemans as the right man for the job. They will, however, need to be sharp about it with Leicester keen on signing the versatile midfielder permanently and Tottenham Hotspur also interested.
