James Maddison has told a fan he wants to stay at Leicester City in what could be a big blow to Manchester United’s transfer plans.
The Foxes playmaker has long been linked with the Red Devils, though a recent report from The Athletic suggested Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side could lean towards signing Aston Villa’s Jack Grealish in that position instead.

Still, Maddison himself seems very happy with life at Leicester, as is clear from his interaction with a fan in the video above.
When asked if he’ll be staying at the King Power Stadium, Maddison says “of course” and talks up how good a move it’s been for his career.
Leicester fans will no doubt be thrilled with this, with the 23-year-old showing himself to be a huge talent who’s had a starring role for the club as they chase Champions League qualification this season.
