Manchester United in ‘pole position’ to sign James Maddison

Manchester United in ‘pole position’ to sign James Maddison

Manchester United are monitoring Leicester midfielder James Maddison but face competition from a number of their Premier League rivals, sources have told ESPN FC.

Maddison joined Leicester from Norwich 12 months ago in a £20m deal and penned a five-year contract worth around £50,000-a-week.

If City do sell both Delph and Danilo in this transfer window, you would expect them to sign at least one new full-back.

He earned his first England senior call-up earlier this season but was an unused substitute and he has since been included in the England Under 21s squad this summer for the European Championships finals in Italy and San Marino.

He featured against Croatia and Spain during the group stage of the UEFA Nations League earlier this year.

My money is not for me; it's always the thought that I can help someone else or, in the future, for if I have kids'. Meanwhile, Céline Dion clocked in third with $450 million and Beyoncé rounded out the luxe list at $400 million.


Nonetheless, he has an exciting campaign to look forward to next season as Manchester United track the creative midfielder, looking to overhaul their squad with homegrown talent following what was an very bad season.

According to the Independent, the blue half of Manchester have been following Maddison for a considerable amount of time now and he is expected to cost £60million if he leaves the King Power Stadium this summer.

Man City head coach Pep Guardiola was also impressed with Maddison when his side played Leicester at the Etihad, a performance which was largely overshadowed by Vincent Kompany's long-range victor.

He would not come cheap and it's been reported previously that the Reds won't spend big, but hypothetically he'd be a real statement signing - especially with main league rivals Manchester City linked.
