Man Utd lining up Youri Tielemans as replacement for Paul Pogba

It seems that Manchester United have reluctantly accepted that Paul Pogba will be leaving them this summer and have already lined up a replacement for the Frenchman.

According to the latest United gossip they have made contact with the agent of Monaco midfielder Youri Tielemans as a potential replacement for Pogba.

Tielemans has just spent six months on loan with Leicester City and put in consistently good performances for the Foxes and now finds himself one of the more sought after midfielders in Europe.

He knocked in three goals and provided five assists in the 13 games he played which is not a bad return for a player adapting to the English game.

For his part, Pogba is determined to depart Old Trafford for Real Madrid, though his personal wage demands are putting the Spanish giants off.

United are publicly saying they do not want to sell Pogba but it does seem as if that boat has sailed and a parting of ways is inevitable, especially with all the agitating for a move that Pogba and his representatives are doing.

Leicester obviously wants to bring the Belgium international back to the King Power Stadium but he prefers a move to a more high profile club and United certainly fit that criteria and the £40 Million fee slapped on the 22-year-old is very affordable for the Red Devils.
