Manchester United are looking to reinforce their attack and a top quality Leicester City star is in the lime light.
If reports in the media are anything to go by then Man utd have become favorites to secure the signing of England international James Maddison.
According to an exclusive report covered by The Independent, the Red Devils have moved in pole position to hire the services of the £60million rated attacking midfielder, who is also on the radar of Champions League clubs like Liverpool, Spurs and Man City.
Duncan Castles (The Daily Record) reported that the Old Trafford club have moved for the 22-year-old star keeping in view that Real Madrid are pressing to sign Pogba.
Maddison was impressive in his first Premier League campaign. He made 36 appearances and directly contributed in 14 goals (7 goals and 7 assists) for the Foxes.
The former Norwich City attacker is a fantastic striker of the ball and has the ability to score wonder goals from dead ball situations. He scored three goals from direct free-kicks in the recently concluded PL season.
After the game between Man City and Leicester at the Etihad, Pep Guardiola praised the young attacker and claimed (MEN):
“They’re (Liecester City) so dangerous, Maddison is an incredible player, Tielemans too. They want to play. I just didn’t expect them to defend so deep. It was tough to attack them,”
We will not be playing in the Champions League next season, however, may be the fact that the player is a boy-hood Man Utd fan (MEN) could help us secure his signing.
The youngster can be deployed in multiple offensive positions but naturally, he plays in the central attacking midfield role. We do not have a quality CAM in our squad and therefore, Maddison would be a top capture if Solskjaer can somehow get his signing done.
