Monday's big transfer rumours: Manchester United identify long-term right-back
With Antonio Valencia heading out the door, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has identified the Ecuadorian's successor according to tabloid reports
What the papers say
Youri Tielemans could become a permanent fixture at Leicester after an impressive run with the Foxes, the Mail reports. The 21-year-old was sent out on loan to the Premie League side by Monaco and looks to have won over the fans after just seven games. Those plaudits could now extend to the Leicester hierarchy as bosses consider a £40 million bid for Belgium midfielder, the paper says.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer looks to be prepping his team for the 2019/20 season, with Crystal Palace full-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka being considered as a possible replacement for Antonio Valencia, the Mail says. Valencia is rumoured to be heading for the exit, putting 21-year-old Wan-Bissaka on the radar of Manchester United's new boss, the paper says – though rivals Manchester City are also said to be interested in the right-back.
Uncertainty appears to be surrounding Jan Siewert’s reign at Huddersfield Town after relegation from the Premier League was confirmed this weekend, according to the Times. After a disappointing run since his appointment in January, the 36-year-old’s contract could be in doubt as the squad look to rebuild in the Championship next season.
Some good news might be in store for Danny Welbeck as he recovers from a broken ankle, with Unai Emery said to be mulling a new deal for the striker, the Independent reports. The 28-year-old, who has been out of action since November, is working towards a return to training before the end of the term and could be in line for a contract extension, it is reported.

FourFourTwo was launched in 1994 on the back of a World Cup that England hadn’t even qualified for. It was an act of madness… but it somehow worked out. Our mission is to offer our intelligent, international audience access to the game’s biggest names, insightful analysis... and a bit of a giggle. We unashamedly love this game and we hope that our coverage reflects that.
