Youri Tielemans has played a pivotal role in Leicester City's return to the top spots of the Premier League under Brendan Rodgers. The midfielder has also made an impression at the international level with Belgium, so it's not a surprise that the likes of Liverpool and Real Madrid keep tabs on him.
Without any doubt, the 24-year-old is a key player for the Foxes, who lifted their first FA Cup just a few months ago thanks to his fantastic goal in the final against Chelsea. But, unfortunately, it looks like his days in Leicester have an expiration date.
According to 90min, Youri Tielemans has turned down the club's latest contract offer to extend his stay beyond 2023, when his current deal will expire. He apparently wants to chase a new challenge and play regular Champions League soccer, something he might do as all these teams are reportedly interested in him.
The Reds would be looking forward to adding a new face to the midfield after Georginio Wijnaldum's departure in the summer. Tielemans would only boost an already talented Liverpool lineup and might be a necessary upgrade to continue fighting at the top.
It's safe to say that Tielemans has the credentials to take a step forward and don the Real Madrid shirt. A player who shone in the Premier League and features for a strong national team like Belgium, Tielemans could be ready to be part of Los Blancos.
The Red Devils would also be looking for a new name in the middle of the park. Donny Van de Beek and Nemanja Matic wouldn't stay longer at Old Trafford and Tielemans could even make a spot in the lineup taking over from Fred or Scott McTominay. Besides, Paul Pogba's future in Manchester United is still in doubt.
The Blues are quite stacked with N'Golo Kante and Jorginho ruling in center. But Chelsea never turns down the possibility of adding more firepower, and Tielemans is on their shortlist.
Tielemans has also drawn interest from the Bundesliga, as his progress in Leicester hasn't gone unnoticed by Bayern Munich. The Bavarians always think in the long term and the 24-year-old could be a great fit for the future.
Los Colchoneros are also in the queue for the Belgian sensation. Atletico Madrid are not lacking in big names in the midfield but adding Tielemans to the mix would turn Diego Simeone's side in an even stronger side, increasing their chances of an elusive Champions League triumph.
