Manchester United set to offer Jesse Lingard plus €45 million for James Maddison

According to recent reports in England, Manchester United are ready to offer Jesse Lingard along with €45 million to sign James Maddison from Leicester City. Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been criticised for the team’s bad run of form this season and he would be looking to strengthen his side. James Maddison made his Premier League debut for Leicester City last season and went on to score a total of 14 goals for the Premier League side. Maddison created more chances (100) than any other player in the Premier League 2018-19 season. United are well aware that it will take a huge amount to lure him away from Leicester City. This season, Maddison has scored nine goals along with three assists in 23 games across all competitions.
