Man United keep a close eye on €55m-rated English playmaker

Man United have joined the battle to add James Maddison. Leicester City playmaker has been in red-hot form this campaign and is also a target for Tottenham and Newcastle United. England international’s heroics on the pitch have not reflected on his team’s displays as the Foxes have been deeply submerged in the relegation battle.

Leicester City’s topsy-turvy run could force them to negotiate a cut-price deal for Maddison, who has racked up five goals and two assists in eight games so far. A drop to the Championship will be hard to imagine, but the Foxes can still salvage their campaign with some smart decisions.

The Red Devils’ campaign has also seen some ups and downs, and Bruno Fernandes’s form has been crucial to their fortunes. Portugal international has not had much to rejoice about this campaign. But he will play a crucial role as the Dutch manager’s revival mission has been going on in full swing at Man United.

However, with the fixtures piling up, the Dutch boss needs bodies to keep his footballers fresh for this long and tiring campaign. And James will be a perfect match for his possession-based system.

Meanwhile, Having spent more than £200m in the summer, Man United will unlikely go big in the January transfer market as their priority has always been to entice a suitable centre-forward to Theatre of Dreams.
