‘Jack Grealish and James Maddison are two young English players who would definitely help the Manchester United squad’: Wes Brown calls on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to chase Premier League duo
- James Maddison has been linked with a £80m move to Manchester United
- Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will look to bolster his midfield options in 2020
- Wes Brown believes United should sign Jack Grealish or James Maddison
Manchester United should do all they can to entice Jack Grealish or James Maddidon to Old Trafford, according to former defender Wes Brown.
After signing Daniel James, Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Harry Maguire in the summer, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is likely to bolster his central midfield options with Maddison, Declan Rice and Sean Longstaff among those linked.
And Brown has urged his former team-mate to at least show interest in English duo Grealish and Maddison as they continue to impress for Aston Villa and Leicester respectively.

Brown, speaking exclusively to 888sport, said of Maddison and Grealish: ‘I love it because Grealish and Maddison play in their own little way.
‘It’s nice to watch and you don’t see many English players do that. They have their own style. Grealish in the last few games has come on immensely.
‘He can always see the pass. Maddison has always been good and he’s a threat getting into the box. These are two young English players who would definitely help the United squad.’
Brown has also backed Solskjaer to dip into the January transfer market in order to launch a serious push for a top-four spot.

‘I think Solskjaer will try and buy in January,’ added Brown. ‘It’s not ideal because it’s halfway through the season and you normally get the ones who aren’t playing. Let’s be honest, the big signings take place in the summer when squads and other teams aren’t disrupted.
‘But you never know, if the right money goes in it could happen but I’m pretty sure we won’t get everyone we need in January.
‘United need another striker and an attacking midfielder, that little wizard number 10. The defence is fine. The goalkeepers are fine. The ideal thing would be two strikers and two midfielders. If only it was that easy!’
