Leicester City attacker James Maddison remains a transfer target for Manchester United, according to a report.

Manchester United are reportedly still weighing up a move for Leicester City attacker James Maddison during this summer's transfer window.

Borussia Dortmund's Jadon Sancho is believed to be the club's leading target ahead of the 2020-21 campaign, while it had been thought that Aston Villa's Jack Grealish had moved past Maddison to become United's priority when it comes to signing a new playmaker.

However, according to the Evening Standard, the Leicester attacker is still being considered by the 20-time English champions.

Maddison, who has a contract at the King Power Stadium until the summer of 2023, has scored nine times and registered three assists in 35 appearances for Brendan Rodgers's side this season.

Leicester are thought to value the 23-year-old at £80m, though, which could prove problematic for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side in the current climate.

United recently confirmed that they had agreed a deal with Shanghai Shenhua to extend Odion Ighalo's stay at the club until at least January 2021.
