However, according to Independent Sport, Manchester United are keen on signing the midfielder and ready to pay as much as £60m for him.
Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solksjaer is looking to rebuild his squad this summer. United had a terrible season and finished sixth in the Premier League. As a consequence they are expected to spend big money this summer.
Manchester United’s Chief Executive Ed Woodward reportedly wants more British players at Old Trafford. James Maddison has been indentified as one of them along with Crystal Palace’s right-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka.
It will be interesting to see if the Red Devils can persuade Maddison to join them instead of Tottenham Hotspur. Manchester United can’t offer Maddison Champions League next season that Spurs can. However, United and Woodward can offer him a better salary than Daniel Levy at Tottenham.
Man United has already suffered a blow in their pursuit of Jadon Sancho. As they have been priced out for the young winger and with no Champions League next season at Old Trafford, Sancho don’t seem much interested in the transfer either.
