Manchester United are increasingly confident that they can sign Leicester City playmaker James Maddison next summer according to the report from the Daily Star.
It was revealed that Manchester United are willing to spend as much as £80m on the England national team invitee in a bid to sign him at the end of the current season.
The Red Devils will also offer him a lucrative contract that would make him one of the highest earners at the club.
James Maddison has enjoyed a meteoric rise in English football following his big money move to Leicester City last summer.

He joined the Foxes from Norwich City who were still in the English Championship as at when the transfer was conducted.
James Maddison has been a consistent source of creativity for Leicester City on the pitch this season and his form has led the Foxes to second place on the league table.
He has scored five goals and also added three assists in the Premier League this season and the English midfielder could be the creative player needed at Manchester United especially against the smaller teams who sit deep and frustrate the Red Devils during games in the Premier League.
Manchester United have struggled to get results against those ultra-defensive teams.
