Manchester United reportedly sent a team of scouts to watch Anderlecht starlet Youri Tielemans on Thursday night ahead of a possible move for him when the transfer window opens in January, according to the Daily Mirror.
The Red Devils were in attendance for Anderlecht’s Europa League clash with Kazakhstan side Qarabag during the week, and were apparently impressed by what they saw.
And the glowing reports sent back to Old Trafford could see them line up an offer for the 18-year-old in the new year.
However, he does already have a long line of admirers keeping tabs on his progression, with the likes of Chelsea, Manchester City, Everton and Aston Villa all credited with an interest in his signature.
It is likely that he will hit and interested suitors deep in the pocket as he has a £30million price tag placed on his head, but that price likely won’t worry United.
