Manchester United Football Club made three key signings in 2019’s summer, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer strengthening the defence significantly.
The Baby Faced Assassin is seemingly looking to build from the back, and next summer, perhaps the main area of attention will be midfield.
For me, it’s the area where United are weakest in terms of quality and numbers. According to The Times, the Reds are set to launch a bid for the talented 22-year-old attacking midfielder, James Maddison, next summer.
Maddison was actually a target this summer, and they considered making a bid for the Englishman, although United accepted that Leicester would not be willing to part with two big stars in the same window.
With Paul Pogba’s future still uncertain, United need to find that creative drive from midfield. Who better than the player who carved out the most chances in the Premier League last term?
Maddison is young, hungry and proven in this division. The word on the street is that he’s a United fan, too. Like Harry Maguire, the Englishman will not come cheap, and Leicester will (rightly) dig their heels in and try not to sell him. Eventually, though, you’d like to think the 20-time Premier League champions will get their man…
