Manchester United have had scouts watch highly-rated 18-year-old midfielder Youri Tielemans in recent months, according to Het Laaste Niews.
Despite his tender age, Tielemans has racked up over 80 appearances for Anderlecht.
Man United have been alerted to the youngster’s potential and have watched him play recently. Barcelona and Borussia Dortmund are also said to be keeping tab’s on Tielemans’ situation.
However, Tielemans recently signed a long-term contract at Anderlecht meaning that the club are in a strong position when it comes to negotiations.
Louis van Gaal has shown, with the acquisitions of Anthony Martial and Memphis Depay this summer, that he is not afraid to throw young players in at the deep end and he may well do the same with Tielemans.
The midfielder is clearly a superb talent and van Gaal may bring him in early in order to ward off interest from other clubs, as he did with Martial. On the other hand, United may wait to see how he develops in Belgium.
