Youri Tielemans joined the academy of Belgian club Anderlecht at a very early age. He then soon progressed through the ranks and got his first senior team contract at the age of 16. Thielemans then played four seasons for the senior team of Anderlecht and made 185 matches.
Tielemans then got contracts from many bigger clubs but ultimately decided to join French Ligue 1 outfit Monaco on a five-year deal. After joining Monaco, the midfielder failed to deliver consistent performances like his Anderlecht days. And then he was loaned out to English Premier League club Leicester City.
Tielemans then finally found his form back and his contract was made permanent by the foxes. he soon became a pivotal part of Leicester’s squad. Tielemans helped Leicester to win their first-ever FA cup and scored the winning goal in the final. The Belgian is currently one of the biggest assets of the club.
Juventus to get competition from Liverpool and Real Madrid for Tielemans
After decade-long domination in the Serie-A, Juventus are currently going through a transition period. The Bianconeri finished fourth in their last two league campaigns.
They have failed to get a good start this time and have won only three of their first eight matches. On top of that, they lost their first two Champions League group matches against Paris Saint-Germain and Benfica.
Juventus management now understands the situation of their club very well and is interested to bring new faces into the squad.
Similar to the previous years, the Bianconeri are looking at multiple free agents to bolster their squad and Leicester midfielder Youri Tielemans has risen as one of the big names.
According to many reports, Juventus have already made their first contract with Youtri Tielemans’ entourage. However, Juve is not the only team who are interested in the Belgian midfielder.
According to Calciomercato, Tielemans has interest from English Premier League Liverpool and La Liga giants Real Madrid.
Liverpool have suffered quite a few injuries to their midfield which affected many results of their season. The Reds are interested to bring new midfielders to Anfield and are looking at the possibility to sign Tielemans.
Meanwhile, defending champions Real Madrid bolstered their squad with the arrival of Liverpool target Aurelien Tchouameni. However, two of their club legends, Tony Kroos and Luka Modric will soon hang their boots. So Real is still looking to sign more midfielders. Hence they developed an interest in Belgian International.
Earlier, Tielemans was hugely chased by Arsenal in the last transfer window. The midfielder then decided to stay in Leicester and fulfill the final year of his contract. Leicester have got a very tough start and have lost six of their first seven matches. It is going to be very tough for them to avoid relegation so a renewal with Leicester is not looking possible at all.
But with so many clubs involved, the Bianconeri will have to move fast to secure the signing of the Belgian midfielder.
