Dawson: Leicester must ‘break the bank’ to keep Man Utd target

Former Tottenham defender Michael Dawson believes Leicester City must “break the bank” to keep Youri Tielemans at the club.

such as Juventus, Atletico Madrid, Bayern Munich and Chelsea in the mix for the 24-year-old’s signature.



The Belgium midfielder is out of contract at the King Power Stadium in 2023, with the Foxes extremely keen to extend his contract.

He has been a crucial player for Leicester since joining in 2019, helping them to back-to-back fifth-place finishes in the Premier League.

And Dawson thinks they should do everything in their power to keep Tielemans at the club.

“If he really wants to stay, they will chuck the money at him,” Dawson told Sky Sports.

“If the price is right, they will sell. If he wants to stay, he can stay. They will give him big money, they have big money. They will have to break the bank. He is an incredible talent, incredible.”

Rodgers said: “There’s no drama with it. It’s just the reality of the situation.

“It only becomes a problem to me if there’s a lack of commitment or there’s not the same intensity but that’s never been the case with Youri.

“It’s natural, he is a very talented player who is in discussions with the club and we’ll see where that takes us.

“I have no idea (why it is dragging on), I concentrate on the football and making sure he is the best player he can be, giving him the support, environment and culture to be that.

“He is a top-class professional and a joy to work with and while he is here – for however long that is – he will always give and I will always give the best to his development.”

Another Leicester man that has been linked with a move away is defender Wesley Fofana.

King: ‘it was personal against Everton – I had a point to prove’

Watford forward Josh King has revealed he “had a point to prove” against Everton on Saturday, where his hat-trick secured an emphatic away victory for the Hornets.

King spent the second half of last season at Goodison Park but failed to start a game for ‘s side, with the 29-year-old later criticising Ancelotti for his poor man-management.

King claims the Italian never gave him the impression that he was a trusted member of the squad, with all of his 11 league appearances coming off the bench.



“You never have to trust a coach who makes promises to you, there are not many honest people in the world of football,” he told Dagbladet () in June. “I had no relationship with Ancelotti.”

King, though, would get his revenge. After equalising early in the first-half, the Norwegian international’s late brace turned a 2-2 draw into a 4-2 lead for Watford on Merseyside yesterday, with Emmanuel Dennis adding a fifth in injury time. Just like that, the Claudio Ranieri era was underway.

“I don’t know what it is,” King said after the game.

“I felt like when they scored the first goal no-one put their head down or gave up. When Richarlison scored I had the same feeling, and when [Juraj] Kucka scored I just knew we were going to get something. We were all saying it in the huddle when we were celebrating that we were going to take this game if we were smart.

“When you’ve been at a club it’s a bit personal. I didn’t really get things going here [at Everton], and coming back today felt like I had a point to prove to myself.”

 

 

He felt it was important to maintain belief after last week’s .

“Last week was a tough defeat to take but Liverpool is a good, good side,” he continued.

“We had to respond and today we did that, by scoring five goals after being behind twice, and coming back shows great character. The manager and the staff are really happy with the performance we put out there today.”
