Manchester United haven’t given up on summer move for James Maddison


Manchester United have reportedly retained
their interest in signing Leicester City midfielder James Maddison. Since the beginning of the January transfer
window, United have been attempting to secure a deal for Bruno Fernandes, only to reach
an impasse with Sporting Lisbon regarding a fee. However, despite their prolonged interest
in the Portugal international, The Independent says that United still intend to target Maddison
later in 2020. Having helped Leicester open up a 14-point
cushion in the race for a Champions League spot, the playmaker is expected to receive
offers to leave the King Power Stadium in the summer. The Foxes are likely to demand in the region
of £80m for the Englishman, who has contributed six goals and three assists in the Premier
League this season. With Maddison having been a boyhood United
fan, the North-West outfit are hopeful that will play into their favour during negotiations. The Independent reports that Manchester United
are still very much interested in securing the services of star Leicester City midfielder
James Maddison. It is said that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer won’t
make a move during the January transfer window but will look to attract the 23-year-old to
Old Trafford during the summer. Solskjaer’s interest in the Coventry City
academy graduate has strengthened after he missed out on securing Bruno Fernandes’ services
from Sporting Lisbon, with the Portuguese outfit reportedly wanting £68 million. The report adds that Leicester City chiefs
are keen to retain Maddison’s services, and will part with him only for a premium price.
