Plenty of Manchester United fans were left drooling over James Maddison’s latest performance for Leicester City at the weekend.
Leicester fell to a 1-0 defeat against Manchester City at the King Power Stadium to extend their winless run in all competitions to four games.
Gabriel Jesus’ 80th-minute winner extended Man City’s lead over the Foxes to to seven points, as Man United moved nine points behind Leicester with a 3-0 win over Watford.
Although he was on the losing side, Maddison impressed as he won six of 11 ground duels, drew two fouls, completed two take-ons and created one big chance.
According to the Manchester Evening News, the 23-year-old playmaker wants to join the Red Devils as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer leads a major rebuild at Old Trafford.
Amid the interesting reports, these Man United supporters were all quick to heap praise on Maddison’s display against Pep Guardiola’s men, despite the result.
