Manchester United fans on Twitter call for James Maddison swoop

Manchester United fans have had an extremely tough time this season, and as a result of that, the Red Devils are desperate for some summer action.

Plenty of players have been linked with moves to and from Old Trafford, but the latest rumour has come via the Manchester Evening News, who have confirmed United’s interest in James Maddison.

The creative options at Old Trafford have either been completely woeful or painfully underperforming this season and the fans will be desperate for that to change ahead of the 2019/20 season.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has a serious job on his hands, but bringing in Maddison would go a long way to easing the growing pressure he’s finding himself under, and it’s not hard to see why.

The Leicester City midfielder is 22-years-old and whilst he may have looked like a seasoned pro with his seven goals and seven assists in the Premier League, this has been just his first season in the top-flight. He also led the league in goals from direct free-kicks with three.

Maddison has a Transfermarkt valuation of £27m, yet he could end up costing the Old Trafford outfit up to £60m, per The Daily Record, although he would easily be able to usurp the likes of Jesse Lingard and Juan Mata as their first choice playmaker so it could be money well spent.
