2 Ways Manchester United Would Line Up With Leicester’s Tielemans Revealed As January Transfer Looms

Man United are reportedly looking to sign a new creative midfielder in the January transfer window and considering a move for Leicester City man Youri Tielemans.

The Belgian midfielder will become a free agent in the summer of 2023, which means he could be available for cheap in the winter.

Tielemans isn’t expected to be a regular starter for the Red Devils, but can help add more creativity and depth to the midfield. Here are 2 ways United can line up with him.

Option 1: Fernandes alternative

Tielemans can play in that attacking midfield role pretty well, which means the midfielder can replace Bruno Fernandes if needed.

He can probably switch with Christian Eriksen and help keep up the intensity in the middle of the park. This is how United would line up using Erik ten Hag’s current preferred XI, but with Youri in place of Bruno.

Tielemans’s ideal role is in the no.8 position and he has proven himself capable of playing in a midfield pivot for Leicester.

The Belgian international can play with Eriksen in the pivot if needed, perhaps in a more attack-minded formation for United. Fernandes can play ahead of them as a no.10, while Cristiano Ronaldo leads the line for the Red Devils in this line up.
