According to a report from the Daily Express, Manchester United have switched their attention to Aston Villa playmaker Jack Grealish over Leicester City’s James Maddison as they prepare to storm the summer window – with this news receiving huge approval from supporters.
Despite signing Portuguese attacking midfielder Bruno Fernandes in January for £47m from Sporting Lisbon, that hasn’t stopped United from prowling the market for more creative talent going forward, with the Daily Express claiming the Red Devils have turned their attention to Grealish as a priority over Maddison. When comparing the two midfielders, they appear to be neck-and-neck in terms of stats, with Grealish edging the Foxes attacker in terms of dribbles (2.4) while registering more goals and assists combined (12), as per WhoScored.com.
However, Maddison reigns supreme when it comes to shots per game (2.4) and Man of the Match awards (4) this season. Despite even numbers, these United supporters have made it clear who they prefer out the English duo, hailing what would be the ‘genius‘ acquisition of Grealish.

Just makes more sense all round, Leicester will quite rightly for them want to a big fee for Maddison. Grealish would offer much better value and tbh there’s not that much difference in ability between them.

Always fancied grealish tbh, all we could do was foul him at ot. Young, cheaper and just as good
