Youri Tielemans has ended up at the top of AC Milan’s wish list since the managerial ‘revolution’ earlier in the week. And the negotiations have been moving fast, with things now heating up.
Tieleman’s contract with Leicester, who got relegated to the Championship, will expire at the end of the month and he will certainly leave. Milan, through chief scout Geoffrey Moncada, have expressed their interest and also initiated talks with the player.
According to SportZone, the negotiations are ‘heating up’ as Moncada is working ‘very hard’ on convincing Tielemans. The midfielder prefers the Milan project over Roma and also wants to stay in a big league, ruling out the hopes of Galatasaray.
More updates should arrive in the coming days as Milan are keen on having many of the signings done early. In addition to Tielemans, a decision is also expected from Marcus Thuram, whose contract with Borussia Monchengladbach will expire this month.
