The English forward scored seven goals in the campaign emerging as one of the standout performers for the foxes.
His heroics have caught the eye of some of the biggest clubs in the land including Manchester United.
Although, According to McGarry, the 22-year-old has asked his representatives to express his reservations about the state of the club.
“I’m told that Manchester United have got a big interest in Leicester City’s attacking midfielder James Maddison,” McGarry said on The Transfer Window podcast.
“Maddison is 22 and currently with England’s under-21 European squad for their European league finals this summer, is interested in moving from Leicester but he wants Champions League football – so cross against Manchester United for that straight away.
“But more interestingly, his representatives, in conversations with people at the top of Manchester United, he has asked his representatives to express his reservations about, first of all, ‘what are you going to do about a demotivated and dysfunctional squad? What am I getting myself into?
“’Is Ole Gunnar Solskjaer really gonna be there for three years or is he gonna be going?”
He went on to add: “‘I want my career to be playing a majority of game time, what’s your answer to that question?’ etcetera etcetera.
“So having played for Leicester City, albeit a very good one remember, 36 appearances, seven goals, made the most goal chances in the Premier League ahead of any other player, 100 exactly. So you’re talking about someone who, at 22, can become a very, very good player at any club, he’s asking questions about what the transfer policy is at Manchester United.”
