Many Manchester United fans want Leicester City midfielder James Maddison to make the switch to Old Trafford.
The 22-year-old starred in Leicester’s clash with Chelsea, as the Foxes held Frank Lampard’s side to a 1-1 draw at Stamford Bridge.
Brendan Rodgers’ side will feel unlucky they couldn’t hand Lampard his second successive league defeat after squandering chances through Jamie Vardy and Maddison himself.
But Maddison looked as dangerous ever in an attacking midfield role, and would be an ideal signing for the Reds given their lack of depth in midfield.
Maddison would fit Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s recruitment plan of acquiring young, British talent, but would undoubtedly command an extremely high fee.
It’s baffling that the Reds could not sign a midfielder during the summer transfer window after Ander Herrera’s departure, but the Englishman will certainly be one for the club to keep an eye on.
Check out some reaction to Maddison below:
I'd take James Maddison any day at MUFC

Need to be signing James Maddison next summer. Would be great to have someone who can take corners and free kicks. #mufc

If Ole and United can get in early and beat the other teams to James Maddison and Jason Sancho next summer then we could have a serious team and mount a challenge #MUFC

James Maddison: "The player I grew up idolising? I'm nothing like him but Cristiano Ronaldo. When I was coming through school, he was the main attraction of Premier League football, playing for #mufc – I use to love him." #mulive [poet & vuj]

We have to go with all guns blazing for Maddison and Sancho next summer. Young, English, top talents #MUFC

Maddison is a baller and #Mufc should consider him next summer alongside Sancho.

James Maddison is becoming some player. #MUFC fan as well 🔴
Him, Sancho, & Florentino Luis would be a dream next summer (albeit probably at c.£250m 😧).
If Utd/Pogba decide to part ways, include Dani Ceballos in a deal, & what a side that would be 🔥
