Leicester City make decision on Youri Tielemans amid interest from Manchester United

According to reports, Manchester United are interested in 23 year old Leicester City midfielder Youri Tielemans.

Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers has confirmed Leicester want to reward Tielemans with a new contract amid interest from Manchester United.

“I’d be very keen, we would obviously love to extend his time here,” Rodgers said of Tielemans.

“He’s been able to come in and over the last couple of seasons he’s shown the qualities and the improvements he’s been able to make. He’s a really, really important player.

“He’s a joy to work with, he has incredible maturity for a young guy, and you can see the consistency in his performances. He’s got a couple of years left (on his contract) in the summer, and I know it’s something the club will speak to him and his representatives about.

“With the ball, he has quality. His decision-making is so good, whether to play it first time, or whether to dribble with it into space. But also his communication, you have heard him talking throughout. His game management is so good.

“He’s been outstanding for us all year. At 23 years of age, to play with that level of understanding of the game and quality, I’m very happy he’s in my team.”
