Leicester City star James Maddison has admitted a desire to go as high as he can amidst rumours of a potential move to Manchester United.
The sensational Englishman has continued to impress this season after a brilliant debut campaign last year.
With Ole Gunnar Solskjaer now manager and his preference for emerging British talent well known, links to Maddison were always going to happen.
The young attacking-midfielder would certainly add quality and depth to United’s otherwise thin squad and so a transfer only seems natural.
Negotiating with Leicester to steal yet another one of their stars having just purchased Harry Maguire though will not be easy to say the least.
According to the Mirror, Maddison said: “I want to play at the highest level my ability will allow me to.
“I like to think I’ve my head screwed on with the transfers I’ve made. I’ve played League One, in Scotland, the Championship and the Premier League. I worked my way up.”
Manchester United fans will be hoping Maddison works his way up one more time by completing a move to Old Trafford as soon as possible.
However, Leicester City have a strong squad with an experienced manager in Brendan Rodgers and should they play consistently this season, they could potentially overtake Solskjaer’s side.
There’s always the feeling the Foxes could break into the top six or even top four if they play at their best and so time will tell who will come out on top in the long run.
