He isn't, but he is tried and tested in our team.  We have seen that he is the key to getting the best out of Vardy, Wilf and Maddison.  He has the perfect chemistry with the team and since he came in, only Liverpool and Man City got more points than us.  Tielemans is one the most highly rated young midfielders in Europe and really should be at a bigger club than Leicester, but somehow we're in with a chance.  That's why this is such a crucial signing.

 

Other midfielders are available of course, but who's to say they won't flop like Silva, Iborra and Inler.

 

You can roll the dice if you want but we won't get anyone better.

 

Who did you have in mind?

 

 

 

Close but no cigar…. Iborra was ok!

Yeah, he was OK.

 

The point I was making was about the quality of some of our other midfield signings, Iborra being a case in point.  If we can't get Tielemans are we happy with OK?

 

Mendy is OK.  A happy meal is OK.  

 

Carol Vorderman was OK, but I want the full Rachel! 

 

 

 

I agreed entirely with every other point you made and the way you made those points (hence the rep!)…. Tielemans is a once in a <insert long period of time here> opportunity to get a young and gifted player who has potential to become even better…. He slots into our team like a key into a nicely greased lock…!

 

If we only got him this summer I’d be over the moon!  I must check this thread 3 times a day!

Yes, I reckon Silva will be back and part of the picture if Tielemans doesn't sign.  But there will be at least one more creative MF in the mix too, like McGregor (who we might sign even if Youri does come back).

No way we finish in the top 10 this season if that’s the case imo

Yeah I thought the same. He played well for a few months including the run where we beat spurs at the KP. Unfortunately it wasn't enough or consistent and he didn't suit.

Blame Suzie the Fox for draining him of his energy on 6 nights of the week!

All good and well, but at the end of the day he ethier wants to come here or not. He's a great player, but he's had a very poor spell at Monaco, I'm not sure a good quarter of a season, makes him one of the highest rated young players in Europe.

Who to say YT will be as successful as a permanent signing, any signing is a risk, even one that's had a successful loan spell.

I thought that when cambiasso left and we got Kante.

Doesn't make a difference who I have in mind, but I'm sure the club has other targets.

He played in the Champions League at the age of 16, won the Belgian League twice and was voted Belgian player of the year in 2017.  Tielemans was rated as one of the brightest prospects in Europe long before he came here.

 

But you know best.

Depressing noises coming from Old Trafford.

Not too depressing.  The Independent are reporting that OGS has switched his midfield target, to Bruno Fernandes of Sporting Lisbon:-
