Tielemans has had a rough season with both his club and his country, but he has put in a number of good performances for them in recent months. This season, the 25-year-old has appeared in 25 games for the Foxes, scoring four goals and providing three assists in various competitions.
The Belgian sensation has anchored the midfield well for Leicester by averaging 2.3 tackles, 0.8 interceptions, 0.7 clearances, 1.1 shots, 1.2 key passes, and 0.5 dribbles per game in the Premier League. He was even accurate when distributing possession from midfield after completing 86.4% of his attempted passes in the English first division (stats via who scored).
His current deal at the King Power Stadium is slated to expire at the end of the season. As a result, signing him on the cheap this winter or on a free transfer, next summer makes sense for Los Blancos.
At the heart of the Leicester defense, the youngster can do it all. Tielemans enjoys a good tackle and can detect danger quickly to regain possession for his team. He is primarily a box-to-box midfielder, but he can also play holding midfielder or offensive midfielder if needed.
The Belgian sensation doesn’t mind clearing the danger when needed and remains a decent playmaker in the final third. He can even shoot the ball with power and precision from long range and can make some intelligent runs with the ball from midfield.
Tielemans is talented enough to give Eduardo Camavinga and Aurelien Tchouameni an additional challenge for a starting berth at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium. He could even be an excellent replacement for Luka Modric, who is nearing the conclusion of his Real Madrid career.
Tielemans possesses the experience and ability set to become a fan favorite at the Spanish club and could even help Los Blancos compete for top honors in the coming seasons. We can anticipate him to provide skill and depth to Carlo Ancelotti’s midfield, making him an excellent value-for-money signing for Real Madrid to consider during the January transfer window or next summer.
