James Maddison has been in electric form so far this campaign, helping to guide Leicester City to second in the Premier League table with his crucial impact, and it was only a matter of time before the likes of Manchester United started to take notice.
Maddison, who has four goals and two assists in 12 league starts, as per WhoScored.com, has now been linked with a potential move to Old Trafford after a piece from the Times via UtdReport claimed Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been keeping a watchful eye over him.
Should Manchester United make a move for James Maddison?
The 23-year-old has came on leaps and bounds this season, earning an international recall ahead of next summer’s European Championships, putting him in a good position.
Among these accolades, Maddison has also netted in some huge games – including an equaliser away to league leaders Liverpool.
However, at least according to the report, it looks unlikely Brendan Rodgers will let him go in January due to his huge importance, with some United supporters actually seeming relieved at the news.
The overwhelming consensus on Twitter when faced with the prospect of Maddison was disgust – prompting the Red Devils fanbase to outline why he isn’t a good fit and who they should target instead.
Here’s what they had to say on social media, with many calling for Sporting Lisbon’s Bruno Fernandes instead.
Rather we sign Bruno Fernandes
