Manchester United are reportedly set to complete the signing of Leicester City attacking midfielder James Maddison within a year.

Manchester United are reportedly set to complete the signing of James Maddison within a year.

The Red Devils have been struggling since the permanent appointment of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and sit 13th in the Premier League despite their 1-1 draw against Liverpool at Old Trafford last time out.

As a result, the club's hierarchy are keen to overhaul the squad and have earmarked Leicester City playmaker Maddison as a potential signing as they look to invest in young, British talent.

The positive relationship between Ed Woodward and opposite number Susan Whelan means that it is possible the 22-year-old will join the Red Devils within the next 12 months, according to The Athletic.

However, it would take a sizeable transfer fee for the Foxes to part with one of their prized assets, as they are in a financially secure position following the sales of several stars.
