Maddison hasn’t been at Leicester long, having joined after an impressive spell with Norwich City in the Championship. Despite this, Man United are still willing to take the risk on the young Englishman.


Maddison started in thirty-five of Leicester’s Premier League games last season, contributing both 7 goals and 7 assists in the process. He also impressed in his debut season, keeping defenders across the league on their toes.

It would certainly be an exciting prospect for Manchester United fans, given the fire power the club already possess.
