It has been exposed that English Premier League outfit Man United are in secret talks with Youri Tielemans in a bid to land him ahead of the Gunners this summer window.

The reports claim that the Red Devils are upset by the recent comment credited to France international Paul Pogba when he claimed to wish for a new challenge and decided to send secret message to the midfielder in order to get a deal dusted in good time.

Arsenal were known to be popular suitors for the star player but they seem to be falling out.

Youri Tielemans is known to have impressed for Leicester in his loan stint at the King Power Stadium last season where he scored a total of seven goals in his half-season spell.

Journalist Duncan Castles reveal that the Red Devils have already contacted Youri Tielemans’ agent and talks could be opened with his parent club, Monaco.

Duncan Castles hinted that Youri Tielemans has been told he would be the first option to replace the World Cup winner in order to convince him.

However, Leicester City are also considering a move to land the player on a permanent deal but they have learnt that their chances are low to achieve that which gives Man United a big edge.
