Manchester United eye Champions League wonderkid as replacement for veteran star

Red Devils set sights on teenage midfielder.

Manchester United are reportedly looking into signing highly-rated Anderlecht starlet Youri Tielemans as a replacement for veteran midfielder Michael Carrick.

The Red Devils are one of many admirers of the 18-year-old, who has also been linked with Chelsea, Arsenal and Barcelona in the past after starring for Anderlecht in the Belgian top flight and Champions League.

Tielemans looks an ideal replacement for Carrick in the middle of the park, with the England ace no longer guaranteed a regular starting spot in Louis van Gaal’s side.
