James Maddison is ready for a Man United transfer

Man United to move for James Maddison this summer

James Maddison’s days at King Power Stadium are being reduced, as the player is sure to move away from the team in the summer, regardless of where it will finish. Leicester still fights to avoid relegation, being currently above the zone, equalled by 30 points to Leeds United and Nottingham Forest. It is not what the fans dreamed of at the beginning of the season, but Brendan Rodgers didn’t have the cash to improve the quality of the roster. Many ups and downs lead to the situation we all watch at this point.

Maddison’s exit could fit perfectly with what Erik ten Hag has in mind, regarding the No. 10 position, while his only countable asset is Bruno Fernandes. Going for a 26-year-old English player always has many plusses, and the disadvantages are not something to worry about. The price is set somewhere between 45 million pounds and 60 million pounds, money that United can spend without considering the pros and cons of the deal.

It is wise to consider two factors: Maddison’s contract duration and Leicester’s financial situation. The attacking midfielder’s contract is due to 2024, meaning that his value has been reduced in the market. The team’s record losses move pressure on the board, which will be forced to sell some key assets during the next transfer window.

It is the first time that Man United is reported to be the frontrunner in this occasion, despite the huge interest from Tottenham Hotspur and Newcastle, two sides that have many differences this season.

Dean Smith, Leicester’s interim manager, sees many similarities between Maddison and Jack Grealish and a move to a big-6 team should confirm this scenario, leaving aside the gap in the value between these two players (Grealish sold from Aston Villa to Man City for 100 million pounds).

Leicester’s remaining Premier League fixtures look tough. The Foxes have to face Fulham (away), Liverpool (home), Newcastle (away) and West Ham (home) to secure survival and live to fight another day in the league.
