Leicester City playmaker James Maddison is one of the recent players linked with a move to Manchester United following his consistent performance for the Foxes since last season.

The 22-year-old has been involved in four goals in seven matches so far and his days at the King Power Stadium could be numbered as a result of Solskjaer’s strong interest in his services.

However, former Leicester City boss Micky Adams has told the young man to turn down United’s approach if he must reach his full potentials.

According to Adams United will do no good to Maddison’s development due to their current inability to compete with top clubs for trophies.

The former Leicester City manager stressed that the England international should move to Manchester City or Liverpool if he wants to develop his overall qualities.

He said: “Maddison would have to go to Manchester City or a Liverpool to improve on what he’s got at Leicester.

“As a young man, he’s just got to keep developing his game and working hard. He must not listen to the hype or get ahead of himself. That’s the time it bites you on the backside as a footballer.” He concluded.

Maddison missed Leicester City’s 5-0 victory over Newcastle on Sunday due to injury but he’s expected to return to full fitness before the upcoming international break.
