Manchester United identify Wilfred Ndidi as a transfer target Transfer News: Manchester United joined by Barcelona in the chase for Leicester City ace Youri Tielemans According to The Sun, Barcelona are keen on a transfer for Leicester City star Youri Tielemans amidst interest from Manchester United.
The Belgian international joined the Foxes in 2019 for a fee in the region of £40million and has been sensational for the club since then. The 24-year-old has helped the club secure two Top 6 finishes in the last two seasons while he also scored a wonderful goal in the FA Cup final last season to help the Midlands club win the competition.
However, the midfielder is now in the final two years of his contract at the King Power and is not looking to extend it despite Leicester’s willingness to get him to put pen to paper on a new deal.

Barcelona to hijack United’s move for Tielemans? Thus, in such a scenario, signing a Premier League seasoned midfielder like Tielemans would be a really smart move by the Red Devils. However, Barcelona have also joined the race now.
The Blaugrana club are interested in securing a transfer for the Belgian but do not have the funds to offer a transfer fee after they posted a £408million loss after tax last season. Thus, their angle is to sign the player on a free transfer when his contract expires in 2023.
