Premier League giants Manchester United are eyeing a late bid for highly rated AS Monaco midfielder Youri Tielemans in this winter transfer window.
This is according to the report from Belgian media outlet Nieuwsblad who revealed that the Red Devils want to sign the player before the transfer window shuts down in a few days time.
It was revealed that Youri Tielemans is keen to leave the struggling French Ligue 1 giants AS Monaco following the arrival of Leonardo Jardim.
The Portuguese tactician has been appointed as the Monaco manager three months after he was sacked from the same job.
He replaces former club striker Thierry Henry who had taken his place when Jardim was dismissed as the AS Monaco boss in October.
Monaco could be open to the idea of letting Tielemans leave either on loan or on a permanent deal.
Youri Tielemans has been one of the few positives in what has become a horrible season for the struggling French club.
Monaco are one place and one point off the bottom on the French Ligue 1 table.
Portuguese international player Adrien Silva is said to be the top target for AS Monaco in their bid to replace the impressive Youri Tielemans.
