Manchester United join the hunt for Leicester City star James Maddison
Reports suggest that James Maddison, the talented attacking midfielder for Leicester City, is set to be on the transfer market when the summer window opens. Maddison joined Leicester City from Norwich City on a five-year contract for a fee thought to be around £20 million back in 2018.
According to The Telegraph, Leicester City is willing to sell Maddison, who is likely to depart even if the team remains in the Premier League. The English midfielder has played 159 games for the Foxes and scored 42 goals during his tenure at the club. Despite his significant contributions to the team, Maddison is expected to be on his way out, as he is not interested in signing a new contract.
The talented 26-year-old has made two appearances for the English national team, and he is considered one of the best creative midfielders in the Premier League. It is no surprise that Manchester United is interested in Maddison and is reportedly willing to pay a fee between £45 million and £60 million for him.
The Manchester Evening News has reported that Manchester United is likely to put in a bid for Maddison. United has been in need of a creative midfielder who can provide the attacking spark the team has been lacking. Maddison could be an excellent addition to United’s midfield, where he could link up with fellow attacking midfielder Bruno Fernandes.
