Man Utd to track Tielemans

Manchester United will be keeping a close eye on the performances of Youri Tielemans with a view to a winter offer for his services. The Belgian currently plys his trade for Anderlecht.

Tielemans is regarded as one of the best talents to have emerged from Anderlecht academy having made his first-team debut at the age of 16.

According to The Star, Jose Mourinho has urged the club's scouts to monitor the teenager's developments as he plans to lodge a bid for his signature in January.

The Red Devils were previously linked with the 19-year-old when Louis van Gaal was at the helm, whilst Arsenal and Chelsea have also been credited with interest for the central midfielder.

Tielemans has appeared over 150 times for Anderlecht at such a young age, and it could be sooner rather than later before he pursues a bigger challenge.
