Manchester United summer target James Maddison is reportedly pondering the prospect of signing a new deal with Leicester City.
The Englishman’s performances for the Foxes since the arrival of Brendan Rodgers in February has attracted a number of potential suitors.
It is claimed that Man United, who signed Harry Maguire from Leicester City over the summer, are currently leading the race for Maddison.
However, according to MEN, Maddison is exploring the possibility of signing a fresh contract at the King Power Stadium, but will make a final decision at the end of the 2019-20 season.

It has been claimed by David Ornstein, a highly reliable source, that Maddison to United next summer was in the pipeline, and that all three parties were open to making a deal happen.
That still seems to be the case, with Maddison certainly the kind of guy who will look to move to the next level, much like former teammate Maguire, when he gets the chance in the summer.
However, in the transfer market, and in the bit leading up to the transfer market, there is a lot of space for things to change drastically.
Much like Erling Braut Haaland and Jadon Sancho, this promises to be a saga that rumbles on.
