Leicester City midfielder Youri Tielemans is open to everything amid reported interest from Manchester United.

The Belgian has been with the Foxes for the past two-and-a-half years. He is currently an undisputed starter in midfield.

His progress has caught the eye of several high-profile teams. Manchester United are among his long-term admirers.

Speaking to Sky Sports, Tielemans has said that he is open to everything despite the transfer window being closed.

He said: "There is no update really. I’m open to everything and the transfer market has just closed so I just try to keep as much options as I can open."

Tielemans has less than two years remaining on his Foxes deal. He has yet to pen an extension despite his FA Cup winning goal last term.

He could be eyeing a significant increase on his £32,000-a-week wages, but the Foxes are yet to make any breakthrough in negotiations.

Tielemans is currently valued at £50m by Transfermarkt. The Foxes may be tempted to sell him next summer if a renewal is not agreed.

As per Fabrizio Romano, Manchester United, Barcelona and Real Madrid could vie for his services in the next summer transfer window.

United see him as a potential replacement for Pogba. The Frenchman has just 10 months left on his contract and could leave for free.
