Manchester United are not the only clubs linked with the Leicester City playmaker.
The England international had previously been linked with other Premier League sides like Tottenham Hotspur and league leaders Liverpool.
James Maddison has been a key player for Leicester City since joining the club from newly promoted team Norwich City last summer.
Norwich City received around 24 million pounds from Leicester City for his transfer and recent reports claimed that the player is rated at around 60 million pounds at the moment.
