Gunners icon has claimed possible £70m Manchester United signing will tear up the Premier League this coming season
Paul Merson has backed Manchester United transfer target James Maddison to tear up the Premier League this coming season
Over the past few seasons, Maddison has developed into one of the very best attacking midfielders in the Premier League and is reportedly interested in a move to the likes of Old Trafford.
United have been linked with the player for some time, but have never made an official move, but with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer looking to spend some serious money, he has come back on the radar of the Red Devils
Now, amid the speculation that United are keen, Merson believes the ex-Norwich player’s exclusion from the England fold may help him prosper this season, The Sportskeeda columnist wrote: “He will be fresh and raring to go ahead of the 2021-22 Premier League season.
“Before his unfortunate injury last season, he was absolutely flying for Leicester City and I got the feeling that he came back a bit too early.
“I like Maddison and I think he can make a real impact this season.
“He can really rip it up and will have an advantage over those who had international commitments earlier this summer, as those players may not start the forthcoming season for their respective clubs.”
Look, Maddison is a top class player that is worth alot of money, but despite the fact United are one of the biggest clubs in the game, he seems very happy at Leicester
If they got him, it would be a great signing, but we believe he will be tearing it up for Leicester this coming season and not the Red Devils
