The Next Zidane? Man United Join the Crowded Race For £30m Record Breaker

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has reportedly informed his scouts to keep a close eye on the performances of Anderlecht midfielder Youri Tielemans over the next few weeks.

According to Daily Star: “Man Utd’s scouts will check on Youri Tielemans, with Liverpool, Chelsea, Arsenal and Bayern Munich also interested”.

The Belgian international, who is also said to be attracting interest from the Premier League giants was heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford earlier this summer.

Talk of a move for the 19-year-old quietened in the summer, but according to the Daily Star, Mourinho is interested in the teenager and will receive regular updates of his progression this season.

While speaking on his role models, the £30m-rated starlet revealed: “I like the ball and I like to create – I modelled my play on Zinedine Zidane.”

Tielemans, who made his Anderlecht debut at the age of 16 broke a long-standing record to become the youngest Belgian to appear in the Champions League in October 2013.

He has scored nine times in 21 appearances for his Belgian club this season.
