Ole solskjaer The Manchester United manager is looking for fresh attacking options following a tricky season which currently sees the Red Devils six points off the top-four in the Premier League.
As a result, The Sun is reporting that Solskjaer could target Aston Villa captain Grealish and Leicester City midfielder Maddison and is hopeful the pair’s close relationship could work in his favour.
The report details that the Red Devils could splash the cash on the pair if they offload Paul Pogba, who has not played since December due to injury.
Should the French World Cup-winner be sold, Solskjaer would be given the go-ahead to pursue Grealish and Maddison.
The pair were in Dubai recently, pictured alongside Leicester left back Ben Chilwell as they enjoyed downtime during the winter break. 24-year-old Grealish has been a linchpin for Villa this season, as they battle to avoid the drop.
He has been at the club he supports since the age of six, but may need to move on in order to play guaranteed Premier League football and for the England team.
Maddison, meanwhile, has flourished for Leicester in the top-flight since his move from Norwich in the summer of 2018.
The 23-year-old has played an integral part in the Foxes’ stellar season, scoring six Premier League goals. Solskjaer added to his midfield in January, completing the long-awaited signing of Bruno Fernandes from Sporting Lisbon for £68m.
