Manchester United will look to sign James Maddison
The attacking department of the Manchester United squad needs quality additions this winter.
The latest reports in England suggest that Manchester United will look to sign Leicester City attacking midfielder James Maddison.
The England international joined Leicester City from Norwich City for a fee in the region of 25 million euros in July 2018. His contract expires in the summer of 2023.
Maddison has played 44 times for Leicester City since signing from Norwich City, scoring 8 goals and creating 9 assists.
The 22-year-old is considered to be one of the best attacking midfielders in England.
James Maddison has represented England at Under-21 level, winning 9 caps and scoring one goal.
Ole Gunnar Solskjær is a long term admirer of James Maddison and believes he can get the most out of the England international.
There is no doubt that Maddison will take Manchester United’s attack to a different level.
According to Tribalfootball, “Manchester United plan to bid for Leicester City attacker James Maddison in January. The Times says just a month after United paid an £85m world-record fee for a defender to sign Harry Maguire, his former team-mate Maddison heads Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s wishlist. Apart from 26-year-old Maguire, Old Trafford boss Solskjaer showed in the last transfer window he prefers to recruit youngsters still developing. Newcomers Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Daniel James, both 21, are already in United’s starting line-up. And midfielder Maddison has begun this campaign in even better form than during his breakthrough season last term.”

Leicester City are not in a position where they need to sell and would like to keep hold of the attacking midfielder, but right offer may force the club to consider a deal.
Stylistically, Maddison would be a great fit in Manchester United.
Manchester United fans would certainly love to see him arrive at the club this winter.
Whether he will join Manchester United or not remains to be seen.
