AS Monaco’s newly re-appointed boss Leonardo Jardim has to decided to actively seek to rid of Belgian international midfielder Youri Tielemans, according to sources contacted by Football News.
Jardim was not a fan of the player during his 1st stint with the club, and Tielemans was exceptionally close with departed coach Thierry Henry.
Jorge Mendes, according to L’Équipe, has decided to insert himself into a potential deal and is seeking to arrange a loan swap between Tielemans and Adrien Silva.
The 29-year-old Portuguese midfielder, a Mendes client, has been offered to other Ligue 1 clubs including St Étienne and Bordeaux, and the latter side are particularly keen on signing him.
Another unnamed English side has positioned themselves for Tielemans in the meantime… Jardim wants Silva, and is therefore in pole position to get him.
