Man Utd sent warning over potential Jack Grealish and James Maddison transfers

Former defender Paul Parker has warned Manchester United over signing James Maddison and Jack Grealish.

Despite the arrival of Bruno Fernandes in January, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer still needs more quality midfield options within his squad.

The pair have both been touted to make the Old Trafford switch this summer and are having wonderful seasons at their respective clubs Leicester City and Aston Villa.

Villa captain Grealish is leading his boyhood club in their survival battle, scoring five goals and contributing seven assists.

Maddison meanwhile, has thrived in central midfield under Brendan Rodgers, helping them to third in the league table.

But Parker has concerns about both players coming to United.

“Manchester United need to sign proven players but the one who has proven himself [Maddison] is not going to leave Leicester,” he told the Metro.

“He’s not going to move unless Leicester get offered ridiculous money, like they were for [Harry] Maguire. Leicester couldn’t believe their luck with that one. ‘So you go with Maddison [over Grealish] but can they get a deal? Grealish for me is still potential, there’s been a lot of talk and he hasn’t really done it on a consistent basis.”

There has been a lot of debate from United fans on social media over who is actually the better player. Regardless, Maddison and Grealish would both improve Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side greatly.

As reported by Manchester Evening News, the club are considering both players ahead of a possible summer move.

Both players are battling for a place in Gareth Southgate’s England squad for the European Championships and their value could increase even further if they perform for the Three Lions
