Leicester slash price-tag by nearly a half for Man Utd and Arsenal target

  • Feb 11, 14:30

Leicester’s poor form combined with the ticking down of Belgian star Youri Tieleman’s contract has led to a report suggesting the midfielder is now valued at around £35million – nearly half of what was wanted just a few months ago.

The Foxes has previously priced Youri Tielemans at £60million, but with his contract ending in 2023 and no sign of the player wanting to extend his deal, Leicester may be forced to sell in this summer transfer window.

Arsenal and Manchester United are both keen on the 24-year-old Belgian star and a price-tag of ‘just’ £35million could be extremely tempting for both clubs.

Real Madrid and Juventus are also named as clubs by the report in the Metro, with Tielemans keen for a transfer to a club with major title ambitions.
