Last weekend, we covered claims made in Spain that Real Madrid are ‘very interested’ in Leicester City star Youri Tielemans.
Fichajes.net now claim the midfielder’s fine displays for the Foxes have drawn attention from Los Blancos and their derby rivals, Atlético Madrid.
The report focuses on the La Liga winners, who have been handling ‘very positive reports’ about the 24-year-old for a ‘long time’.
Tielemans has grown by ‘leaps and bounds’ at the King Power Stadium. Therefore, Diego Simeone ‘wants him’ at the Spanish capital club, even though the Argentine has sufficient options in the middle of the pitch.
The ‘great advantage’ Los Rojiblancos would find to try to sign the former AS Monaco man is his contract situation with Brendan Rodgers’ side. The player’s current deal expires in 2023.
The next summer window will be Leicester’s last chance to cash in big from Tielemans’ sale, if he decides against signing an extension. Should this happen, the Belgian could be an idea to become Atlético’s ‘star signing’ for the 2022/23 season.
