Youri Tielemans Set To Leave Anderlecht In Summer Director

The future of Anderlecht's Youri Tielemans is set to be decided in the next two weeks, sporting director Herman van Holsbeeck has said.

Tielemans, who signed a five-year deal with Anderlecht in 2015, has been linked with Chelsea and Manchester United.

The midfielder is not expected to remain at the club he helped to the Belgian title last weekend, with French newspaper Le Soir reporting that a Belgian record €25 million deal to take him to Monaco had already been completed.

Tielemans, 20, said earlier this month he had yet to make a decision on his future.

However, Van Holsbeeck said: "Regarding Tielemans, I think he's going to leave us -- but it won't necessarily be for Monaco as other teams are interested.

"I think his transfer will be sorted out in the coming fortnight. We're going to try and make sure all our players don't leave, but those who do leave will give us more financial flexibility."
