Loads of fans name two players Man Utd should sign to solve creativity issue

Manchester United’s 2-1 home defeat to Crystal Palace on Saturday highlighted the lack of creativity at Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s disposal.

Despite having 71% in the game (BBC Sport), the Reds managed just three shots on target, and something has to change in attack for United against defences likely to sit back and defend deep.

Rather frustratingly for United fans, no attacking midfielder was signed this summer, despite the fact it was an area that clearly needing addressing.

Despite having Juan Mata and Angel Gomes among his ranks, Solskjaer has been persisting with Jesse Lingard in at the role, who is not delivering.

Many United fans think it’s time for United to sign Leicester playmaker James Maddison. The 22-year-old was linked with a move to Old Trafford this summer, and the latest report from the Mirror states that the Reds will go in with a bid for the youngster in January.

Another player fans would love to see in a red shirt is Jadon Sancho. The Dortmund winger has set the Bundesliga alight since joining from Man City in 2017, but surely United would need to secure Champions League qualification to have a chance of prizing the youngster to the club next summer.
