It was just a regular interview for the Wisła Puławy youngster Lukasz Plonowski, who was talking about his career with Weslo, before he ended up revealing who could be José Mourinho’s next signing at Manchester United.
When talking about his friend Youri Tielemans, the Anderlecht midfielder was quoted as saying: “Youri called me up recently and said: Lukasz, do you know who called me? Mourinho. He asked if how I’d take the possibility to move to Manchester United.”
Then Plonowski sent a lot of praise the way of Tielemans, but the interview continued normally, as if the call wasn’t big news.
It was already reported that Manchester United were scouting the 19-year-old, but there were there has been no news about bids or approaches recently.
Tielemans’ contract with Anderlecht runs until 2020, and Transfermarkt values him at €14m. Repeated linked with the Premier League, it would be no surprise to see Tielemans make the move at some point, although he’d probably be better going somewhere he’d get games.
