Between The Lines: Youri Tielemans’ comments can bring Leicester fans hope

Youri Tielemans could have a big decision to make this summer with his future being far from clear following a loan spell with Leicester.

Speaking about what’s next in quotes relaid by Leicestershire Live following an interview with Belgian television, Tielemans hinted that the quality of life in England is better than in Monaco. The midfielder also claimed he wanted to remain in a positive environment.

What’s he said?

The 22-year-old was a joy to watch after his January loan move to the King Power and as a result, he quickly became one of the best creative outlets in the division.

His impressive performances for the Foxes saw him attract interest from the likes of Tottenham, Arsenal and Manchester United, per The Daily Star.

Tielemans hasn’t been shy of media attention and in quotes relaid by Leicestershire Live, he commented on his future, talking about the quality of life in England and also speaking about the type of environment he wants to play in. He said:

“The life you have here is very similar to that in Brussels and Belgium. That is a normal life I would say, unlike with all the money and the bling that is in Monaco.

“I want to stay in a positive atmosphere, that’s normal.”

Between the lines

Reading into this it’s easy to see that Tielemans prefers England, and as such, this is perhaps the biggest indication yet of the midfielder’s potential return to Leicester.

Brendan Rodgers admitted last month the club would do everything they can to sign the player so these latest quotes could have supporters of the Foxes rubbing their hands with glee.

The laidback life in England certainly seems to have suited the youngster as he discovered an extra level of quality after arriving in the Premier League.

However, it’s comments about a positive atmosphere that will be most pleasing for Leicester fans. With Monaco embroiled in relegation trouble under Thierry Henry just before Tielemans left, the atmosphere was extremely negative.

But under Rodgers, he and Leicester have thrived. The Northern Irishman has instilled a phenomenal mentality and the positivity around the King Power at the back end of the season has been immense.

Looking at the atmosphere at United, a team he’s been linked with, Tielemans would be a lot better off joining Leicester again. It’s now over to the club to make a deal happen.
