Former Manchester United defender Jaap Stam believes that the club should acquire the services of Leicester City's James Maddison over Aston Villa's Jack Grealish, Express UK reported.
The United legend who won three Premier League titles and the Champions League trophy with the Red Devils firmly believes that Grealish is not the ideal player for what squad needs at this moment.
"Both are great players," Stam told 888Sport.
"Jack Grealish I see more as a winger coming in. For United, they need to look more at direct wingers with pace going forward, instead of a player like Grealish.
"Who knows, he might be an important player because he is good in tight areas. But for me, it’s Maddison for United."
Stam admitted that he has been impressed with Maddison's displays this season for the Foxes and is adamant that he will bring the change that United going forward.
"I like Maddison a lot. He’s a midfield player who is very comfortable on the ball and he’s always going into certain positions where he becomes an extra man," he continued.
"He can go by players and score goals as well as creating opportunities for others."
The 23-year-old has scored six goals from 25 Premier League appearances in this campaign as Leicester aim for Champions League qualifications and also improve their standings on the log.
"I hope he’s going to surprise people," Stam said.
