Three-time European champions Manchester United will have to see off the interest of several Premier League clubs in the race to sign Leicester City midfielder James Maddison.

According to the publication from the Daily Star via Goal, Manchester United will have to do battle with other Premier League rivals like Liverpool, Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur for James Maddison.

The Leicester City midfielder has been able to make the step up from the second tier of English football on the back of his transfer last summer.

The 22-year-old left Norwich City for Leicester City at the start of the just concluded season in a deal said to be worth around £22m.

The Canaries didn’t really feel the impact of his sale after they secured Premier League football by winning the English Championship title during the just concluded campaign.

Apart from Norwich City, Sheffield United and Aston Villa have also booked their spot in the top flight of English football.

James Maddison was one of the best players in the Leicester City team in his first season at the club and it’s not surprising that the bigger Premier League clubs are on his trail after scoring seven goals and also assisting seven more goals for the Foxes in the league.

He’s rated at around £60m by his club who are in no hurry to sell him.
