The 21-year-old Leicester City star has been the subject of speculations and rumours in the recent weeks amidst reports that Manchester United are lining up a considerable bid to snatch him up from the Foxes.
Currently on duty with England U-21 for the European Championship, Maddison has never confirmed or denied about his intentions to join the Old Trafford outfit, while maintaining that he’s a Leicester City player with a contract he has to respect.
However, according to journalist Ian McGarry, amidst all the United talks, James Maddilson has asked his representative to set-up a face to face meeting with the manager:
“The latest on Maddison is that he’s with the England Under-21 squad who are playing at the European Championships in Italy,” he said on The Transfer Window podcast.
“So he has basically told his representatives, who are talking to Manchester United, ‘I want to be left alone to focus on England during the next couple of weeks for the European Championships.
“‘However, please tell Manchester United that I would like to meet with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and see him face-to-face and ask him what my role would be, what my influence would be in terms of how much game time I would have, and where he would be playing me in terms of position, as well as who I would expect to be playing with.’
McGarry goes on to claim that the 21-year-old isn’t swayed by the money and would avoid to move to a club just for the financial sake of things.
Still only 21, Maddison has a whole career ahead of him and the Englishman would prefer playing time over anything else at this point in his career:
“However, he (Maddison) does not want to move to a club where he would be deprived of the kind of game time he had at Leicester City.
“And I think at 21 years of age, he’s quite happy to wait for a move rather than force anything through now just in order to get himself a move to a bigger club.”
James Maddison comes of as an intelligent and considerate character which is more than we can say about a lot of our very own players.
Yesterday, we covered a news about Reds interest in Bournemouth’s David Brooks. I would much prefer if we go after James Maddison instead!
