Leicester City midfielder Youri Tielemans is being watched by a trio of top clubs in Europe, as the Foxes try to tie the Belgian international down to a new deal in order to ward off any interest from elsewhere.
Spanish newspaper AS is reporting that La Liga giants Barcelona and Real Madrid have joined Premier League side Manchester United in keeping tabs on the 24-year-old. Meanwhile, transfer expert Fabrizio Romano recently told his YouTube channel that no fewer than nine different clubs wanted to sign Tielemans this summer.

La Liga Sides Trying to Order Their Finances
Tielemans has been an impressive performer for high-flying Leicester City since joining the club from Monaco on a permanent deal in July 2019. However, if the Foxes are unable to agree a new long-term contract with the player, then a transfer to the Spanish top-flight could become a feasible possibility.
Of the interested parties, Real Madrid have shown that they have significant funds available after bidding £197 million for Paris Saint-Germain superstar Kylian Mbappé this summer. Meanwhile Barcelona have loosened the shackles of their financial turmoil following the high-profile departures of Lionel Messi and Antoine Griezmann from the Camp Nou.
Manchester United’s interest in Tielemans is more long-standing, with the Old Trafford club having been repeatedly linked with a move for the player during his time at Anderlecht, prior to his moves to Monaco and Leicester.
Leicester Talking to Sassuolo Over Domenico Berardi Transfer
Despite the summer transfer window having closed, talk continues to rumble on regarding possible future additions to Premier League clubs. Leicester themselves are no stranger to this, having been linked with a move to sign Italy international Domenico Berardi from Serie A side Sassuolo.
The Daily Mail are reporting that Brendan Rodgers’ club have opened discussions with Sassuolo over the possibility of signing Berardi in January. The right-winger impressed for Italy during their triumphant campaign at Euro 2020, making six appearances for Roberto Mancini’s team.
