Monaco face a battle to keep midfielder Youri Tielemans following reports Manchester United are ready to make a £36million offer. The 22-year-old is in hot demand following an impressive spell on loan with English Premier League side Leicester City, where he spent the second half of last season.

Leicester, unsurprisingly, are keen to keep him and have made a bid of their own but could lose out to Manchester United, who see the player as perfect replacement for Paul Pogba, should he leave. Pogba is set leave United with European giants Real Madrid and Juventus battling for his signature, and Tielemans could be the man to step into his boots.
Tielemans is keen to stay in England for next season and beyond and will have a difficult choice to make after both the Foxes and United offered £36m for his services. Monaco will not stand in his way, and reports are rife suggesting the young midfielder will opt for a switch to Old Trafford.
