Manchester United reportedly have an interest in AS Monaco midfielder Youri Tielemans as a possible replacement for star player Paul Pogba.

According to a report from the Independent, French midfielder Pogba could leave Manchester United this summer and Youri Tielemans is one of the options being considered by the Red Devils as a possible replacement for him.

Youri Tielemans impressed a great deal while he was on loan at Leicester City during the second half of the just concluded season.

The Belgian international player joined Leicester City from French giants AS Monaco during the winter transfer window and a £40m transfer fee is required to make the move permanent for interested clubs.

Youri Tielemans is being targeted by the Red Devils as a potential replacement for Paul Pogba who’s frustrating with the inability of Manchester United to challenge for major honours.

Pogba is attracting interest from Real Madrid but there are doubts on whether the Los Merengues would be able to raise the £130m transfer fee needed to sign the player.

The same thing applies to former club Juventus who are keen to welcome Pogba back to Turin though they have the luxury of doing a swap deal for him with players like Paolo Dybala, Miralem Pjanic and Joao Cancelo available.
