Manchester United to raid Leicester for James Maddison

English Premier League giants Manchester United are reportedly planning to make a January move for Leicester City playmaker James Maddison.

According to the Mirror, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wants to make another shopping trip to the King Power after acquiring the services of their defender Harry Maguire in the summer.

Maddison has caught the eye since arriving from Norwich for £20m last summer; primarily due to the dearth of creative, English No 10s.

Call Up

Maddison's form looks set to earn him a call-up to the England squad this week, as Gareth Southgate prepares for European Championship qualifiers against Bulgaria and Kosovo. Southgate was at Bramall Lane on Saturday to watch Maddison during Leicester's 2-1 win over Sheffield United.

For Solskjaer, Maddison fits perfectly into the new identity he is attempting to instil at United; recruiting young, hungry and enthusiastic British talent.

Maguire's arrival at Old Trafford followed that of highly-coveted right-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka, and Wales international Daniel James. The report details that United will make a bid for the Leicester player in January.
