Manchester United have been dealt a blow following the news that James Maddison has agreed a new deal with Leicester City.
The 23-year old has been one of Leicester’s most impressive performers this season and had been linked with a move away from the King Power Stadium, with United leading the long list of potential suitors.
However, instead the England international has decided to commit his immediate future to Leicester by agreeing a new deal, which will extend his stay at the Foxes until 2025, and see his weekly earnings boosted to £96,000.
That will make him the second-highest earner at the Midlands club behind Jamie Vardy.
Maddison began his professional career with Coventry, before joining Norwich City in 2016. He spent two seasons there before joining Leicester for an undisclosed fee and has gone on to make 67 Premier League appearances for them so far, scoring 13 goals. Injury means he missed the end of this season though.
Andy is an exiled English football fan living in Cyprus. He loves all sports but football is his abiding passion, and he still has dreams every now and then about scoring the winning goal in a Wembley Cup Final, even though his playing days are long gone. He follows most major leagues, across Europe at least, and has a favoured team in each. When he’s not watching, listening, reading or downloading podcasts about football, he spend his time worrying about his beloved Arsenal.
