Premier League giants Manchester United are said to be lining up the midfield duo of Youri Tielemans and Christian Eriksen as a possible replacement for star player Paul Pogba during this summer’s transfer window.

Youri Tielemans plays his club football for French Ligue 1 giants AS Monaco at the moment though it must be pointed out that he spent the second half of the just-concluded campaign on loan at Premier League club Leicester City.

He scored three goals and also weighed in with two assists during the second half of the just concluded season.

On his part, Christian Eriksen plays his club football for Tottenham Hotspur at the moment but the Danish midfielder is ready to leave the club this summer for a new challenge elsewhere.

According to the London Evening Standard, French World Cup winner, Pogba could leave the Theatre of Dreams this summer with former club Juventus and Real Madrid hot on his heels this summer and they have targeted either Youri Tielemans or Christian Eriksen.

Paul Pogba had his best season for Manchester United statistically after scoring 16 goals in all competitions during the just-concluded campaign but the Frenchman is still dividing opinions at his club despite finishing as the Red Devils’ top scorer ahead of striker Romelu Lukaku (15 goals).
