Man Utd plan Jan bid for Leicester attacker James Maddison

Manchester United plan to bid for Leicester City attacker James Maddison in January.

The Times says just a month after United paid an £85m world-record fee for a defender to sign Harry Maguire, his former team-mate Maddison heads Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's wishlist.

Apart from 26-year-old Maguire, Old Trafford boss Solskjaer showed in the last transfer window he prefers to recruit youngsters still developing.

Newcomers Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Daniel James, both 21, are already in United's starting line-up.

And midfielder Maddison has begun this campaign in even better form than during his breakthrough season last term.

The 22-year-old has caught the eye of other top Prem clubs like Manchester City and Liverpool.
