Leicester City Star James Maddison has talked about his recent transfer links with Manchester United in an interview with Sky.
The 22-year-old had a brilliant last campaign in the Premier League with the Foxes where he scored 7 goals and assisted as many for his club.
Naturally a no. 10, Maddison is equally capable of playing on the wings or as a second Striker, thanks to his versatility and slick skill-sets.
Manchester United are in a need of an attacking midfielder who can create chances from the midfield when we play against defensive teams and Maddison has got all of them attributes.
Talking to Sky about his links to the Red Devils, James said:
“No, you have just got to ignore that and take it all in your stride.
“As a 17 year-old boy I’d started five games for Coventry and saw on my phone that I was being linked with Tottenham and Liverpool.
“With transfer talk you need to take it as a compliment that people are even talking about you, it won’t distract me.”
Currently on duty with the U-21, there have been lots of talks about James Maddison good enough to be in the senior set-up.
However, the 21-year-old is proud to represent his country with the U-21’s:
“This tournament is going to be a better experience for me than what sitting on the bench at the Nations League would have been, I have been asked that a few times and I will never look at it and think should I be with the seniors.
“I am never going to be disappointed representing the U21s with my country, I am excited and proud that I’m here.
“I feel like I’m a much more experienced player now on and off the pitch, I look around at lunch and think me and Demarai [Gray] are the old men here!
“There are little things I can help those younger lads with and in terms of game management.
“I have played over 150 games now at club level, I definitively think I’m a more senior professional now.”
