Manchester United reportedly face stiff competition if they want to sign Belgium prodigy Youri Tielemans this month, according to the Telegraph.

The 13-time Premier League champions, who visit Liverpool on Sunday, are understood to have been joined by Italian giants Juventus in the fight to secure the Anderlecht midfielder’s signature in January.

The 18-year-old, who is a Belgium Under-21 international, has scored four goals in 25 appearances in all competitions for the Jupiler Pro League outfit this season.

Serie A champions Juventus are thought to be preparing an opening £11.4m bid for Tielemans this month; although Anderlecht are understood to be demanding almost double that figure, meaning United boss Louis van Gaal could sneak ahead of the Italians with a more appropriate offer.
