Manchester City make contact to sign £40m Man Utd target

Youri Tielemans

Manchester City have been in contact with Youri Tielemans’ team about a potential move this summer, reports say.

The midfielder won a host of suitors this season after an impressive loan spell at Leicester City in the second half of the campaign.

Monaco are keen to offload Tielemans and Manchester United, Tottenham and Arsenal have all been tipped with making a move for the Belgian.

But the Sun claim City have made their move by getting in contact with Tielemans’ representatives.

Tielemans has remained tight lipped about his destination of choice, as Leicester battle to bring the 22-year-old to the King Power Stadium on a permanent deal.

But it is believed Tielemans is eager to play Champions League football next season, which would appear to rule out United as his next club.
