Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is set to bolster his midfield at Manchester United this summer, with a move for Leicester City's James Maddison on the cards, according to reports.

Playing a starring role as Leicester eventually finished ninth in the table, he has been one of several young stars reportedly in the crosshairs of United ahead of a squad rebuild.

Liverpool and Tottenham - who have tracked him since he was a teenager at Coventry - are also said to be interested.

Leicester are under no pressure to sell the England under-21 worldwide, who has only spent one season at the King Power Stadium, and would demand a large fee before allowing him to leave.

James Maddison has been phenomenal in midfield for the Foxes last season, as he has amassed 7 goals and 7 assists in 36 appearances in the Premier league from midfield.

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has an incredible squad at his disposal, and signing someone like Maddison wouldn't necessarily improve the quality of the first team, but it would add more depth to the squad.

An image from the footage is being shared online and have created curiosity among the fans, as they are continuously inquiring, whether the English midfielder is a Manchester United fan?

Maddison feels like a surefire success, with Premier League experience, and a player who can star at Old Trafford for the best part of the next decade.

Norwich were forced to sell as their parachute payments were coming to an end, it seemed like the flawless opportunity for both parties as Maddison move on to bigger and better things with the Canaries recouping a reported £25 million for the Englishman.
