Leicester City ace Youri Tielemans is a man in demand in the transfer market as he will be available for a free transfer in the summer. Indeed, the 25-year-old’s contract with the Foxes expires at the end of the season leading to interest from several clubs, including Real Madrid and Barcelona.

It is no secret that Real Madrid have made Jude Bellingham their main target to strengthen the midfield department next summer. However, with competition for the Englishman increasing, Los Blancos are believed to have identified Tielemans as a potential Plan B.

But, according to SPORT, Leicester City are determined to keep hold of the Belgian international beyond the current season and are preparing a two-year contract offer to retain his services.

Tielemans has been with the Foxes since 2019 when he joined them from AS Monaco and has been a top performer for the club ever since. While he has had his ups and downs of late, the 25-year-old has shown good form in the current season.

Seen as an important part of the team, Leicester do not wish to see Tielemans leave at the club at the end of the season. To that end, they are readying a two-year contract proposal.

However, the report indicates that the former RSC Anderlecht ace is looking to move on from the King Power Stadium after spending more than three years at the club.

Real Madrid are interested in Tielemans but will face competition from FC Barcelona, who are also hoping to land the Belgian international on a Bosman deal.

With Luka Modric in the final phase of his career, Toni Kroos’ future uncertain and Dani Ceballos unlikely to be renewed, Real Madrid could use a new midfielder. Whether it will be Bellingham they sign or are forced to look at alternatives like Tielemans remains to be seen.

According to AS, Atletico Madrid have made the first approach for Celta Vigo midfielder Gabri Veiga, who has also been linked heavily with a move to Real Madrid and Arsenal.

The 20-year-old midfielder has emerged as one of the most exciting young prospects in Spanish football this season, having already netted nine goals in La Liga.

It has alerted a series of top-level clubs, with the likes of Real Madrid, Arsenal, Liverpool and Atletico Madrid all being linked with the youngster, who has a €40 million release clause in his contract with Celta.

Real Madrid are in the market for midfield reinforcements and have identified Jude Bellingham as their top target, but Veiga is also said to be on the agenda at the Santiago Bernabeu

However, recently, the Galician club’s president confirmed that there had been contact from clubs in England, but stated that Real Madrid had made no approach.

On top of that, a report from MARCA quoted a club source saying that they were not contemplating signing the 20-year-old.

Amidst this, it has now emerged that Atletico Madrid have made an approach towards signing Veiga from Celta Vigo in the summer transfer window.

The Rojiblancos are also in the market for new midfielders amid question marks over the futures of Saul Niguez and Geoffrey Kondogbia.

While Diego Simeone’s side have taken a first step, the report indicates that Veiga, in case of the absence of interest from Real Madrid, would prefer to join Arsenal.

So, the Colchoneros will need to put in efforts to convince the 20-year-old to choose them over a move to the Premier League club come summer if they are serious about adding the talented youngster to their roster for next season.
