Foxes of Leicester asked transfer guru Fabrizio Romano about Leicester City star Youri Tielemans. This is what the famed journalist said.

Before we get into the heart of the Youri Tielemans issue and possibly resolution, I’ll briefly let you know just who Fabrizio Romano is. Basically, in the footballing realm the Italian is the most popular, trusted and well-known transfer expert. That is high praise, yes, but also an absolutely accurate description.

So, that being said, FoL were very blessed and fortunate to receive a reply from the particularly relevant, extremely busy and rather cordial reporter. On Twitter, Romano often replies with insight to all types of accounts: the verified, the fan, as well as the fanatic, on occasion.

Therefore we had the idea of questioning Romano about the latest, persistently draining potential exit from the Foxes. Incidentally, nobody is perfect. With regard to the writer, he is relying on information from his trusted and notably reliable sources.

It appeared to us that even the great transfer guru partially contradicted himself when tweeting fresh and different information on Tielemans’ immediate future, Saturday. In addition to the midfielder’s intentions seemingly altering – should he remain at King Power Stadium for 2022/23. In the tweet below, from May 31, Romano clearly claims the Belgian will depart.

Subsequently I wrote the below message to Romano, in hope of a response.

The journo promptly replied, as visible underneath this sentence.

After I quizzed him slightly, Romano graciously stated that Tielemans is planning to leave the East Midlands team. Furthermore, the former suggested that no negotiations are ongoing between Leicester and the Fox.

However, if the Belgium international stays for the upcoming campaign there is a chance of him renewing his Leicester deal, declares Romano. This seems like a U-turn from the player and/or his camp; the correspondent can only provide details given to him. Arsenal signing Fabio Vieira certainly changes the landscape.

Basically, FoL’s take is that Tielemans is assessing his options. He would prefer to move elsewhere during the current window. He’ll sign a one-year extension if doesn’t get the offer he wants from another club, in order to be beneficial to both he and LCFC. At least then Leicester can increase the reported and ridiculously low £25million fee. Once again, we would like to thank Romano for the comment.
