Man United keen on signing €60m-rated technically gifted attacker

Red Devils could reportedly have been handed a huge transfer boost regarding their rumoured pursuit of Leicester City playmaker James Maddison. The 23-year-old attacker has shown himself to be one of the finest playmakers in the Premier League in recent times and looks like he could be a superb fit at Man United.

Red Devils could, therefore, be pleased to hear latest reports on James’ future, as claiming Foxes are eyeing Barcelona misfit Philippe Coutinho as a possible replacement for him. Maddison has been linked with Man United as much as £90m, and the playmaker himself would surely also relish a big move like this.

The report suggests Leicester are already working hard to sign Coutinho, who shone under coach Brendan Rodgers when they were together at Anfield. It stays to be seen if Foxes could realistically make a big signing like that and keep hold of the English attacker, so Man United fans could have some justification in feeling optimistic about this.

A skilful, creative footballer with an eye for goal, James Maddison looks like only what Ole Gunnar Solskjaer needs to improve his team’s attacking performances next campaign. It would leave Red Devils fans drooling at the prospect of James Maddison alongside Bruno Fernandes in a creative midfield.

Man United have excellent consequences in the Premier League this campaign as they are in a fifth place in the table. Red Devils signed several footballers during the winter transfer window like Bruno Fernandes from Sporting, Odion Ighalo from Shanghai Greenland Shenhua and Nathan Bishop from Southend United.
