Manchester United reportedly remain keen on securing a summer deal for Leicester City midfielder James Maddison, despite their interest in Bruno Fernandes.

Manchester United have reportedly retained their interest in signing Leicester City midfielder James Maddison.

Since the beginning of the January transfer window, United have been attempting to secure a deal for Bruno Fernandes, only to reach an impasse with Sporting Lisbon regarding a fee.

However, despite their prolonged interest in the Portugal international, The Independent says that United still intend to target Maddison later in 2020.

Having helped Leicester open up a 14-point cushion in the race for a Champions League spot, the playmaker is expected to receive offers to leave the King Power Stadium in the summer.

The Foxes are likely to demand in the region of £80m for the Englishman, who has contributed six goals and three assists in the Premier League this season.

With Maddison having been a boyhood United fan, the North-West outfit are hopeful that will play into their favour during negotiations.
