Leicester City midfielder Youri Tielemans has broken his silence after failing to secure a move to Manchester United this summer.

The Belgian international was heavily linked with a move to United in the summer transfer window but the Red Devils opted against submitting a bid for the midfielder.

Despite not signing the midfielder during the summer transfer window, Manchester United are reportedly still monitoring his situation at Leicester City.

“I’m not going to speak too much about my contract situation at the moment. I didn’t leave Leicester in the summer as I always said the project had to be the right one,” said Tielemans.

“Just because things are getting worse now at Leicester doesn’t mean I should regret [staying].”

Since moving to Leicester in 2019 in a deal worth £40.5million, the Belgian star has made 50 goal contributions in 166 games, helping the Foxes win the 2021 FA Cup.
