Barcelona interest in Monaco’s Youri Tielemans

Barcelona are one of the clubs interested in Monaco midfielder and Belgium international midfielder Youri Tielemans, reports Niewsblad.

The Belgian media outlet claims the Blaugrana are in the running for the in-demand player, who is also interesting both Manchester United and Milan.

The 21-year-old is one of the few star players in a struggling Monaco side this campaign and the return of boss Leonardo Jardim is set to signal his exit.

The Portuguese boss is said to have sanctioned the former Anderlecht midfielder’s departure earlier this season but the stint of Thierry Henry was said to have changed the situation.

Now Jardim is back in the hotseat and Tielemans is available for sale, despite netting five goals in 20 league appearances for struggling Monaco and helped Belgium finish third in last summer’s World Cup.
