The Daily Mirror recently linked Maddison with United in a move that could possibly cost as much as £80million, and speculation seems to be hotting up that he’s high up on the club’s agenda.

The report claims the Norwegian tactician is a big admirer of Maddison’s confidence and creativity, and he has the added boost of surely having his best years ahead of him.

United could no doubt do with a playmaker of his type as a long-term replacement for Juan Mata, while other attacking midfield players like Jesse Lingard and Andreas Pereira haven’t really impressed on a consistent enough basis.
