Foxes ace open to a big move in the future as United hover

8th September 2019, 14:17 by Michael Holland

Leicester City star James Maddison has opened the door to a possible move to Manchester United in the future.

The midfielder has been a revelation for the Foxes since signing from Norwich City and took to the Premier League like a duck to water in his first season in the top flight.

So much so, it did not take long for the league’s big guns to start showing an interest in him, with both United and Tottenham said to be keen on doing a deal.

United in particular were chasing his signature and at one point there was talk of a double swoop on the King Power Stadium, with both Maddison and Harry Maguire on the Reds wanted list.

Maguire ended up making the switch to Old Trafford, but thankfully for Leicester supporters Maddison ended up staying where he is as the transfer deadline came and went.

However, they cannot rest easy for too long as United will not go away. They are known to be in the hunt for new midfielders and Maddison fits the profile of the kind of player they want to sign.

Just like Maguire, he is young, English, has bags of quality and all being well, his best years are ahead of him.

Again, just like Maguire, Maddison will not rock the boat and push for a move away from the club, but he is also very ambitious and would jump at the chance of move to a club like United one day.

It is only natural. Every player wants to play at the highest level and Maddison is no different.

“I want to play at the highest level my ability will allow me to,” Maddison said. “I like to think I’ve my head screwed on with the transfers I’ve made.

“I’ve played League One, in Scotland, the Championship and the Premier League. I worked my way up.”

One thing is for certain, if United do make a move they will once again have to break the bank as Leicester will want top dollar and will not budge on their valuation.
