Real Madrid are lining up a shock transfer swoop for Youri Tielemans but Leicester could demand £50m

YOURI TIELEMANS is rumoured to be on Real Madrid's radar amid speculation the club are considering a January move for the player. 

Reports in Spain claim the Leicester midfielder is attracting interest from Europe’s biggest sides including Carlo Ancelotti’s club. 

And Spanish outlet El Nacional says the LaLiga outfit could be open to paying the reported £50million price tag linked with the Belgium star. 

The Prem ace has reportedly refused to confirm or deny rumours concerning the renewal of his Foxes contract according to outlets in Spain 

According to El Nacional, Tielemans said a few weeks ago: “I am open to everything. 

“The transfer market has just closed, but I want to keep open all the options I can," 

It is thought Madrid, who play Espanyol later, are eyeing Tielemens as a potential replacement for their midfielder Casemiro. 

Reports claim the Brazil player, who signed a new contract with Madrid this year, is wanted by Paris Saint-Germain boss Mauricio Pochettino. 

It is suggested Tielemans versatility in midfield is partly responsible for Madrid’s interest in bringing him to Spain.

The former Monaco star, who notched up six goals and four assists in 38 Premier League games last term, is also reported to be a target for Liverpool. 

The Belgium international, whose Leicester’s side play Crystal Palace today, has a contract with the Foxes until June 2023.

Should Tielemans seal a switch to the Bernabeu he would become the third Belgian to arrive at the club 

Ancelotti’s squad includes former Belgium and former Chelsea stars Thibaut Courtois and Eden Hazard.

Tielemans, who joined Leicester from Monaco for a fee of around £40, has made 118 appearances for the club since his July 2019 arrival.
