Manchester United have allegedly been given a huge transfer boost in the race to land Leicester City midfielder Youri Tielemans.

The club have issues in the middle of the pitch at the moment, and things could get even worse next year as Paul Pogba is approaching the end of his deal, with little sign of an extension being imminent.

If the Frenchman does move on, the Red Devils will surely need to sign another player for that important role, and Youri could be ideal after his stunning form for the Foxes in recent times.

According to 90min, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side are one of a host of top clubs eyeing the Belgian’s situation after he turned down a recent contract proposal from the management.

Supporters will surely hope United can pounce for Tielemans amid doubts over Paul’s future, but it will not be easy as Liverpool and Chelsea are also among the 24-year-old’s potential buyers, according to 90min.

Elsewhere, the former Inter Milan, Chelsea and Juventus chief Antonio Conte would be prepared to replace the current head coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as Manchester United manager if the Norwegian tactician is sacked, it has been reported.
