Manchester United are still in demand for an offensive midfielder and with the recent news about Denis Praet getting closer to a move to Leicester City, more shocking news are on the radar.
The fact that Christian Eriksen looks no where close to a move to Manchester United makes James Maddison a name that now figures as a possible new man at Old Trafford. A fee of £50 til £60million could trigger a move.
James Maddison, with agent group, Base Soccer Agency, looking after the interests of the highly rated midfielder, have seen another clients move not really going anywhere, with Danny Rose’s possible change to a new adventure not really materializing.
Kyle Walker is not moving anywhere, as he is one of the other big names on the Base Soccer Agency list of players, and they probably would like one big move this summer, and with Rose probably not getting a move to his liking, Eriksen not able to join Man Utd, attention is drawn towards James Maddison.
Rose is at the moment looking for options, but nothing has happened as the England left back has seen no big interest from other clubs in his attempt to seek opportunities elsewhere.
Leicester City will have to convince Denis Praet that he has more than a squad future at King Power Stadium, and this news and a probable James Maddison departure could make the move easier for the Belgian wonder, born in Leuven, to join.
Reports are that Rachid Ghezzal have been seen in Genoa today, making his potential swop so that a move can materialize and be finalized in due time before the transfer deadline cross.
As a Leicester City fan I would really be in tears if James Maddison also jumps ship and move on in a new “big money” sale from the club. Denis Praet would be a “full blooded” replacement and hopefully slot in perfectly. Cannot see Praet moving to Leicester City without given a proper guarantee for first team football.
A sale of James Maddison could also give a boost in the trying to sign James Tarkowski from Burnley, with a possible rise of that bid to reach the £40million that Clarets are demanding for their England international.
