It is understood that United and Leicester City are currently in a two-way battle to sign Tielemans from French side Monaco.
Tielemans really showed his mettle on loan at Leicester last season displaying a mix of intelligence and adaptability to the intense tempo of the Premier League.
The 22-year-old has been touted as the next best thing in Belgium football since he made his debut for Anderlecht at the age of 16. He was able to become the leader of the team before securing a big money move to Monaco.
However, his stay at Monaco did not go according to plan with the player registering six goals and three assists for the Principality outfit.
Leicester took him up on loan in the second half of last season and he really had a good time with the Foxes netting three times and providing five assists in 13 Premier League matches.
