Report: Manchester United send scouts to watch Tielemans and Dendoncker

Manchester United have been linked with Youri Tielemans and Leander Dendoncker.

According to Dhnet.be, Manchester United are tracking Youri Tielemans and Leander Dendoncker.

The Belgian report claims that United sent scouts to watch the talented Anderlecht duo in action during their 1-1 draw with Pro League opponents Gent on Thursday night.

Belgium are currently in the midst of a golden generation, and with players such as Romelu Lukaku, Eden Hazard, Kevin De Bruyne and Vincent Kompany in their ranks, they could well win Euro 2016.

It is certainly an exciting time to be a supporter of the Belgian national side, and the senior team are being backed up by a number of promising players representing the youth sides.

Among the most promising are Anderlecht duo Dendoncker and Tielemans, with the latter in particularly already being linked with host of top clubs around Europe.

Tielemans, 18, is a box-to-box midfielder and he became the youngest ever Belgian to feature in the Champions League when he started a game against Olympiakos two seasons ago.

Capable of breaking forward and chipping in with goals, the youngster is widely regarded as one of the brightest prospects to come out of Belgium and a senior cap is surely not too far away.

Dendoncker, 21, is a holding midfielder and already has international experience with the senior team after making his debut last year following a sharp rise through the youth teams.

United have always been keen on bringing in younger players and developing them accordingly, and the two Belgian superstars are the sort of additions that would be most welcome at Old Trafford.
