Manchester United are keen on signing both James Maddison and Jack Grealish, according to the Sun. The Red Devils are resigned to losing Paul Pogba in the summer, and they are looking to replace the Frenchman with two players.
It was thought that a move for Maddison would be difficult to achieve, with the 23-year-old expected to sign a new deal at the King Power Stadium. However, United are reportedly willing to pay up to £90m to secure the attacking midfielder’s services.
Grealish, meanwhile, is also a top target, but after a stellar season in the Premier League for Aston Villa, the 24-year-old could command a fee of around £70m.
Both deals could be financed by Pogba’s sale, with Real Madrid and Juventus his two likeliest destinations. Neither Maddison nor Grealish would be a direct replacement for the Frenchman, though.
Both Englishman tend to play in more advanced roles, either playing as a number 10 or from the left-hand side. With Bruno Fernandes also preferring to start in similar positions, it is up for debate where all of these midfielders would fit into United’s starting line up.
