I think it’s fair to say that the signings Ole Gunnar Solskjaer made over the summer have already started to prove their worth. Given time, the Baby Faced Assassin has shown he knows what he’s doing in the transfer market.

Only three players were signed during the last window, but Manchester United still have much work ahead – namely in the final third.

Well, according to the Manchester Evening News, one area United are looking to strengthen in is midfield. They say that the Red Devils are still monitoring the star 22-year-old, James Maddison, ahead of a potential move next summer.

The Reds’ interest in the Leicester man emerged in June, though that was never firmed up with an official bid as Maddison was happy staying where he was for at least another season.

However, things could be different in twelve months time, and there’s no doubt that Maddison would be an unbelievably good signing for United – to either partner, or potentially replace Paul Pogba.

The Englishman created more chances than anyone in the Premier League during his debut season with The Foxes, and he’s started this term in an equally excellent manner.

He certainly wouldn’t be cheap, but United have shown they’re willing to give into Leicester transfer demands when they signed Harry Maguire last month. That shouldn’t change going into a huge 2020 summer for Solskjaer and the whole club.
