Man Utd set to miss out signing of Premier League No.10 midfielder

Leicester City James Maddison who has been strongly linked with a switch to Manchester United has reportedly put an end to questions over his future by signing a new long-term deal with Brendan Rodgers side.

The 23-year-old boasts combined nine-goal involvement in the English top-tier this season and has long been touted as a midfield target for hosts of teams around the world.

According to The Sun, though, the Red Devils have been dealt a blow as Maddison is close signing on a five-year contract extension and likely to remain at King Power Stadium for a long time.

The Foxes will supposedly increase the Englishman’s wages to £95,000 per week in what the club believes is a big statement of intent.

Maddison, who has joined from Norwich City in a £22m deal two years ago, will be behind only Jamie Vardy in terms of Leicester’s highest-earning players.

Brendan Rodgers side have missed out the chance to play in the Champions League as they have been without Maddison for Sunday’s final-day clash with Man Utd.
