According to a recent report by The Independent, Manchester United are eyeing a move for Leicester City midfielder James Maddison after making him one of their top targets for the summer transfer window. It is believed that the Red Devils are eager to bolster their squad but are struggling to get any deals done in January (via The Independent).
Hence, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer might be forced to turn his attention to next summer in his search for quality reinforcements. The same source has revealed that the other player Man United are looking at is Aston Villa midfielder, Jack Grealish.
Maddison’s Incredible Rise In English Football In Recent Years
Maddison has enjoyed a majestic campaign at the King Power Stadium after putting in several eye-catching displays for the Foxes so far. He has registered nine goals and three assists in 28 matches for the East Midlands outfit this term on all fronts. The 23-year-old has averaged 2.4 shots, 2.6 key passes and 1.7 dribbles per game in the English top-flight (stats via whoscored).
The Coventry-born talent has also represented England at the Under-21 level before going on to earn a senior cap for the Three Lions. If he can continue showing signs of his growth in the coming months, then he will be a heavy favourite to be one of the names in Gareth Southgate’s England squad that will participate in the UEFA Euro 2020 later this year.
What Are The English Playmaker’s Best Attributes?
Maddison is the principle playmaker of Brendan Rodgers’ side and is currently one of the first names in the Leicester team sheet. His influence on the Foxes’ growth under Rodgers has been immense over the past year, and it seems like the English playmaker will only get better with each season.
Will Maddison Be A Decent Option For Man United Next Summer?
Hence, it makes a lot of sense for Man United to splash the cash on a quality midfielder like Maddison next summer. He excels at creating goal-scoring chances for others around him and can also score his fair share of goals from long range. The Leicester star has already proven his worth in the Premier League and can now score or create goals consistently at the highest level.
Maddison will not only improve the quality of Solskjaer’s midfield but will also help the Mancunian giants compete for major trophies next season. Therefore, he will be an excellent choice for the Red Devils to consider at the end of this campaign.
