Leicester hope to avoid the sale of Youri Tielemans while Daniel Jebbison is wanted by most of the big six…
LEICESTER LOOK TO TIE DOWN TIELEMANS
Youri Tielemans timed his FA Cup winner to perfection on Saturday as he approaches contract renewal time at Leicester.
The Belgium midfielder scored one of the great Wembley final goals to sink Chelsea on Saturday and earn the Foxes their first ever FA Cup triumph.
So Tielemans will be in an extremely strong position when he sits down with Leicester at the end of the season to discuss his terms.
Two years still remain on his current deal but the Daily Mail says Champions League qualification will be pivotal in whether Leicester can pay Tielemans what he wants to keep him from the clutches of Manchester United.
Leicester have made a habit of making one major sale per summer but retaining their top four place would be ‘a game-changer’.
Caglar Soyuncu and Harvey Barnes are also in line for new deals, apparently.
BLADES’ STARLET EYED BY BUNDESLIGA BIG BOYS
Daniel Jebbison had a decent weekend too…
The teenager netted his first Premier League goal on his first start for Sheffield United in their 1-0 win at Everton.
But Jebbison was already on the big boys’ radar. 90min reckons Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund are monitoring the 17-year-old, with Manchester United, Chelsea, Arsenal, Tottenham and Everton also keeping on eye on the forward.
ICARDI’S ITALY RETURN IMMINENT?
Mauro Icardi seems to be angling for a move back to Serie A…
The PSG striker is being linked with both AC Milan and Juventus , with Calciomercato claiming that Icardi and his family prefer life in Italy over Paris.
That report suggests the Argentina striker could head to Juve but the Old Lady would have to shift Cristiano Ronaldo and/or Paulo Dybala first.
Corriere della Sera reckons Milan could move for Icardi in the wake of Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s injury but PSG would prefer to keep hold of the 28-year-old.
PSG LINKED WITH LEWANDOWSKI
Or they could sign Robert Lewandowski. That’s the prospect being touted by L’Equipe…
Apparently, the Poland star would become a PSG target if they are forced into selling Kylian Mbappe this summer.
Bayern Munich have already warned that the 40-goal striker is not for sale but PSG would need a marquee arrival to distract from Mbappe’s possible exit.
