Real Madrid Showing Interest In This Leicester City Midfielder: Good Option For Ancelotti?

A 26-year-old sports writer and an aspiring football coach who has road-tripped across the Scottish Highlands, but has never been to Wales. Sucker for cliff-hangers and catchy riffs. Known to be a grunger and not to be a stranger.

In a recent report, El Nacional mentioned that Real Madrid are showing interest in Leicester City midfielder Youri Tielemans. It is believed that Los Blancos are eyeing a move for the Belgian international as Carlo Ancelotti looks to bolster his squad even further next year.

Tielemans’ Growing Influence In  English Football

Tielemans had a solid campaign at the King Power Stadium recently as he produced a run of consistent displays at the centre of Brendan Rodgers’ midfield. The 24-year-old participated in 51 matches for the Foxes last season, netting nine goals and securing six assists in multiple competitions.

The Belgian international proved himself to be a consistent performer for the East London outfit after he averaged 2.3 tackles, 1.2 interceptions, 1.3 shots, 1.3 key passes and 1.1 dribbles per game in Premier League football. He has even been quite accurate with his ball distribution, based on his pass completion rate of 81.7% in the English top-flight (stats via whoscored).

Tielemans is currently playing some of the best football of his career, so Ancelotti can expect him to make an instant impact at the Spanish capital if Real Madrid can figure out a way to acquire his signature next year.

Will Tielemans Be A Good Option For Los Blancos?

Tielemans loves a tackle in midfield and can time his challenges well to secure the ball back for his side. He is proficient at making a few intelligent runs with the ball towards the opponent’s penalty box and can orchestrate some decent openings for his teammates up top.

The 45-time Belgian international can even strike the ball with power and precision from long range, as evidenced by his match-winning goal against Chelsea in the FA Cup final last season. Plus, he doesn’t give away possession cheaply which would make him a good fit for Ancelotti’s style of play at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium.

At 24, Tielemans’ best years are ahead of him, so the Madrid boss can expect to get the best out of him in the coming seasons as long as he can make a smooth transition to life in Spanish football. With all things considered, Tielemans will be a decent option for Los Blancos to pursue in January or at the end of this season.
