Man Utd prepared to offer huge terms to sign £100million playmaker




James Maddison England debut

Manchester United have been linked with James Maddison for the past few months and the latest reports going on in the media are extremely interesting.

Last month, The Athletic reported that Man United want to sign the England international in the winter transfer window and Leicester City value their prized asset at £100million.

Transfer: Club ready to offer £25million star to Manchester United – Report

Now, Mirror Sport have revealed that the 23-year-old is a top January target for the Red Devils, who are prepared to offer Jesse Lingard and £45million to the Foxes in order to land their star playmaker. The British outlet have reported that the Old Trafford club value Lingard at £40million.

Maddison is naturally a central attacking midfielder but he can effectively play on the flanks as well. He scored three goals from direct free-kicks last term and has the quality to strike the ball from distance and find killer passes.

In the last campaign, the Three Lions attacker scored 7 goals and provided 7 assists in the Premier League. This season, the Leicester star has excelled under the management of Brendan Rodgers and so far, he has directly contributed in 12 goals (9 goals and 3 assists) in 21 starts in all competitions.

On the other hand, in the year 2019, Lingard failed to score/create a single goal in the PL for Manchester United (The Sun). So, it is baffling that the 20-time English champions value the 27-year-old flop at £40million. In all fairness, Leicester would not like to replace their top playmaker with an average player like Lingard.

Nevertheless, Mirror Sport have also claimed that Man Utd are prepared to offer huge terms worth £150,000-a-week to secure the signature of Maddison. At the moment, the King Power outfit’s highest earner is Jamie Vardy, who gets £140,000-a-week and Man Utd’s top earner is David De Gea, who gets £350,000-a-week (The Sun).

After 21 league fixtures, the Foxes are second in the table and would likely qualify for the next season’s Champions League. However, the Red Devils are 15 points behind the 2015-16 champions and five points behind fourth placed Chelsea. So, they must improve big time in order to finish in the top four.

A player of Maddison’s caliber is good enough to play for a CL club and therefore the deal could depend on whether United can qualify for the Europe’s elite competition (Mirror Sport).

We shall see how the transfer saga unfolds. For the latest updates, watch this space.

  1. Between Timo Werner and Madisson, I would go for Werner.

    REASON:
    Werner is by far a neat and strong stand alone player with a bigger viewer appeal than Madisson. At the same time, Werner is coming at under half the prize of Madisson who comes at 100million for just another Lindgard who is in a better club surrounded by Gray n Ineacho.

    If we took Madisson’s price (100million) I would rather buy 3 very top players with vast vast experience. Try to buy like Liverpool. PLEASE MOVE AWAY FROM BUY ENGLISH YOUTH ONLY. Wenger WENT DOWN THAT SAME CHANNEL AND FORGOT ABOUT CUPS.

    So, with Madisson 100 m I would buy Top European assist master (ZIYECH) at 45m, Vidal at 25m and Semedu at about 30m.

    This means I have covered all the holes with experience, speed, assists and precision.
    Look at Maltial closely. MARTIAL DOESNT HAVE A GOOD BALL SUPPLIER AFTER POGBA with who they link up very well. Rashford is quick and resourceful, but very STINGY with the ball, making Martial seem useless in front.

    Martial is now benefitting from the younger boys n not Rashford. But the young boys like James can’t tick all the times. In this case we NEED a very forceful number 10 and 6. FERNANDEZ IS NOT TOO FORCEFUL BUT WHIPS IN VERY GOOD THROUGH BALLS.

    ZIYECH is good from all angles. VERY FORCEFUL. NEVER RELENTS. VERY SLIPPERY LIKE NEYMAY. HAS THE CURRENT BEST ASSIST RECORD IN EUROPE. A BREAKER OF RIDID DEFENCES AND A MAN THAT MAKES YOU SMILE FROM THE BRAZILIAN TYPE OF TRICKS HE MAKES.

    If his back was followed with another play maker like Semedu and Vidal, then Martial will be one of the BEST STRIKERS we have had in recent times
