The teenage sensation only penned a new five-year deal with the Belgian giants late last month, but that doesn’t seem to have put off the English duo at all.

However, they may both face some serious competition from Spain, where reports are claiming that Atletico Madrid are also interested and could make their own move for him this summer.

Tielemans is hot property in Belgium right now, and having already made 86 appearances for the club, he is being tipped for a big future in the game.

The one stumbling block in any deal, though, would be his £14.4m asking price. This is seen as too steep for a player that is yet to earn a single cap playing for his country, though he is experienced in many youth levels for the Red Devils.
