Manchester United are in pole position to sign Leicester Midfielder James Maddison according to reports in England.
The Daily Star claims that the Red Devils have beaten rivals Man City and Liverpool to the signing of the England u21 international. The report further says that Manchester United have offered a whopping transfer fee of £60 million to sign the 22-year-old.
Maddison was one of the players that caught the eye in the Premier League this season putting up impressive performances for Leicester City. Playing just behind talisman Jamie Vardy in the advanced midfield position Maddison skill and creative nous stood out this season.
He bagged seven goals and provided a further seven which underlined his status as one of the most complete midfielders in the Premier League.
Manchester United are looking to strengthen the midfield position with summer signing Fred failing to impress after his big money move.
Maddison is seen as a player that ticks all boxes as a young English player with the potential to develop into a world-class player in the future.
With several top clubs after the midfielder, Manchester United will have to move quickly to sign the player and although £60 million is a lot of money, it is certainly worth it for the former Norwich player.
It would be interesting to see how he would be able to adapt to the pressure at Old Trafford if he makes the move this summer.
