The 23-year-old is set to sign a new contract with Leicester City that would all but rule out the chances of a potential transfer to the Old Trafford in January.
Manchester United have been dealt a blow in their pursuit of transfer target James Maddison as the England midfielder is set to set a new long-term contract with current club Leicester City.
The Red devils were hoping to secure the services of the 23-year-old in January to reinforce their push for a top-four finish in the ongoing Premier League season.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side has shown signs of promise in recent weeks by beating both Tottenham and Manchester City but still find themselves five points behind Champions League places.
Amid rumors of Paul Pogba leaving the club next summer, the potential arrival of Maddison would have given United more options in the attacking midfield department
