Premier League giant team Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United are all set to be up against one another to try and rope in Leicester City star player James Maddison as the Spurs have also shown their interest in roping him

Manchester United have closely monitored Maddison throughout the summer transfer window but failed to get him in the team before the window slammed shut. Multiple reports are now claiming that the Ole Gunnar Solskjaer managed team seems confident of roping Maddison in their team as early as possible.

However, according to a report carried by Daily Star, Manchester United would be pushed to bag the deal early by Tottenham Hotspur since they are also interested in the 22-year-old star player. Notably, Tottenham Hotspur star Christian Eriksen is linked to a move to Real Madrid and they have identified his potential replacement in Maddison.

Christian Eriksen’s contract with Tottenham Hotspur is all set to expire after the season and he seems set to leave the club in January or the next summer transfer window. If Tottenham are indeed interested in roping Maddison in their team, they need to shell out at least £60 million before Manchester United complete the move for him.

With still some time to go for the transfer window to open, more updates are awaited on this transfer episode in the coming months.
