British media reported that MU is still chasing Leicester midfielder James Maddison. What is special about this player and why does Manchester care about Maddison?
MU has started a plan to find a replacement for David De Gea in the context of not being able to successfully renew the contract. Coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer decided the 11-year-old after both Paul Pogba and Marcus Rashford jointly failed.
Ole Gunner Solskjaer’s shopping motto in the MU reconstruction campaign is to focus on investing in English players, young, prospective and eager to win. According to that criterion, James Maddison is really a very good choice, very suitable for MU.
Leicester’s No. 10 played the first season at King Power but made a strong impression. No player last season created many opportunities for teammates like Maddison. This season, he also had 2 assists for his teammates. Maddison directly participated in 14 goals of The Foxes in the Premier League last season in which he scored 7 goals and 7 assists. It was a bad start for a 22-year-old midfielder.
Good vision, good technique, can kick, pass the ball and directly score goals, Maddison used to kick the wing, play a guard or shuttle midfielder. Some 10 are both creative and versatile, such as MU players are missing.
MU needs sample players like Maddison
Since the time of David Beckham, Manchester United has no world-class fencing expert, nor a good corner kick expert. With James Maddison, those problems can be solved even though the Reds certainly pay a high transfer fee.
The Red Devils reveal too many problems at the end of the season, one of which is a lack of creative play. The team almost only expected to rely on passes and the ability to create mutations of Paul Pogba and also only Pogba can create really good opportunities for teammates.
The poor creative play of MU is exposed through 2 confrontations with Wolves and Crystal Palace recently when Pogba alone, with psychological instability, can not burden the team and the Red Devils immediately attacked deadlock.
It was at Old Trafford that the name James Maddison was mentioned. Once the England midfielder arrived at Old Trafford, he could bring a new twist to the Reds.
At Leicester, Maddison plays with Vardy. If he landed at Old Trafford, he could create a similarly good match with Rashford or Anthony Martial.
Failure in the latest season shows that Manchester United cannot burn the stage to return to a winning trajectory, unable to use money to recruit only established or branded players to ensure success.
They were forced to accept the rebuilding of an empire where the foundation was wobbly after the Alex Ferguson era by starting with aspiring young players like James Maddison.
