Premier League giants Manchester United have invested heavily in emerging Premier League talents in the summer transfer window. They not only brought in players like Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Harry Maguire but are also reportedly seeking the services of another Premier League talent James Maddison.
According to a report carried by The Sun, Manchester United are eager to sign star midfield talent James Maddison. The English player was impressive in his first season at Leicester City and is looking set for another successful season with them. Meanwhile, he also has his eyes towards a possible move in the near future.
The report further adds that Maddison is expected to stay at Leicester City for at least another year. However, United will closely monitor his performance and will keep an eye on him for a potential move in the future. The good news for Manchester United though is that they will not have any competition from other teams to draft in Maddison as rival teams like Liverpool and Manchester City both turned away after initially showing some interest.
Moreover, if Manchester United indeed sign Maddison, they will need to pay him a fee close to what they are paying Harry Maguire which is estimated at around £80 Million. Notably, Maguire had joined Manchester United for a world-record fee for a defender.
