That would be an absolute A solution as a plan B!
England giants Manchester United apparently have a favorite in the event that the tug-of-war over Holland director Frenkie de Jong (25/FC Barcelona), which has been dragging on for weeks, ultimately does not lead to the hoped-for result.
According to the usually well-informed British journalist Ben Jacobs of CBS Sports (100,000 Twitter followers), United have their eyes on Leicester leader Youri Tielemans, 25.

United-Interesse an Premier-League-Star
Jacobs in a tweet on Wednesday afternoon: “Man United’s interest in Tielemans is genuine and growing. It’s a much cheaper and less complicated option than Frenkie de Jong.”
The interesting thing is that the new coach could be the decisive factor for United.
Jacobs: “Erik ten Hag put him on a list for midfield. Tielemans had already indicated that he did not want to switch to MUFC under Ralf Rangnick. But under ten Hag he could reconsider.”
In the case of desired player de Jong (60 million market value), Barça and United are still discussing the transfer modalities. Tielemans (55 million market value/one more year of contract) is unlikely to be cheap either…
