#manchester_united fans love transfer target James Maddison’s #harry_maguire captain message.
Manchester United transfer target has reacted to Harry Maguire's appointment as the club's new captain following Ashley Young's departure.
Manchester United have appointed Harry Maguire as their new captain following Ashley Young's move to Inter Milan - and transfer target James Maddison has responded on Instagram.
United have made the Leicester playmaker their priority target following his impressive performances for the Foxes since joining from Norwich. Maddison has netted six goals and registered three assists for Brendan Rodgers' side this season but the MEN understand he isn't expecting to leave in January.
The Reds are buoyed in their pursuit of the England international by the fact Maddison is a boyhood United fan and close with former club colleague Maguire.
Maguire became the club's new captain following Young's departure and Maddison commentated on his post on Instagram.
"Skipdoggg," he wrote with a few raising hands emojis.
United fans were quick to connect the dots, suggesting that the pair could be reunited at Old Trafford next year.
Plenty of supporters replied to comment with calls for Maddison to make the move.
