Despite a summer transfer window splurge, it’s fair to say that there is still an enormous gap between Manchester United and the clubs chasing the Premier League title.
With the January transfer window set to open imminently, here at Vital Manchester United, we believe that the club needs to bring in some classy reinforcements if the dream of a top-four place is to be realised.
Today, one media source, The Daily Star is reporting that Manchester United are looking to spend big to secure the services of a young midfielder who has already shown he is more than capable of not only holding his own at this level but also has that crucial ability to influence the outcome of games.
The player in question is somebody we’ve commented on again, the 23-year-old Leicester City midfielder, James Maddison.
Our source backs up its initial suggestion by implying that in order to entice Leicester City to sell, Manchester United will make an offer said to be of the magnitude of £80 million but, alas, not until the summer.
Now whether Leicester City, who are having a considerably better season than United, will be willing to lose another of their prized assets to Manchester United, having already sold Harry Maguire to us back in the summer, remains to be seen.
But my view is that Maddison is just the kind of player Manchester United should be targeting but in January not next summer.
Should Manchester United Pursue The Signing Of James Maddison This January?
