According to a report from the Manchester Evening News, Leicester City star midfielder James Maddison ‘would have been at United years ago‘ if it was up to him, potentially indicating a heavy interest in swapping the King Power Stadium for Old Trafford.
Maddison, who has shone in the Foxes’ midfield this season, scoring six goals and assisting three others as Brendan Rodgers’ side challenge for the top four, is attracting interest from the Red Devils as they prepare for a whopping £274m transfer spree (The Sun).
Alongside Maddison, fellow creative midfielder Jack Grealish is also being targeted, with the pair potentially joining new signing Bruno Fernandes in the summer. Comparing the duo, Grealish and Maddison are neck-and-neck when it comes to offensive statistics, with the latter attempting more shots per game on average (2.4) while the former has completed more dribbles (2.4), as per WhoScored.com.
Who should Manchester United sign?
However, according to Manchester Evening News, Maddison has been ‘earmarked‘ as the club’s prime attacking target, resulting in waves of United supporters expressing contrasting opinions over the ‘expensive‘ player. Find all of their best comments down below.

Woodward and Ole dropped the ball last summer and his acquisition would have made a world of difference today.
