Maddison to Man United?
Football Transfer Centre


Manchester United are reportedly planning to swoop for the services of James Maddison from Leicester City when the season comes to a close.

Maddison has been a top signing for the Foxes since arriving from Norwich City in the summer of 2018 and he has already contributed seven goals and nine assists for the club in the Premier League.

His progress has certainly caught the attention of the Red Devils and The Manchester Evening News claims that they could make an approach for Madisson at the end of the campaign.

United are desperately in the need for a creative midfielder in the ranks but manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer may be forced to wait until next summer to land Maddison, given the Foxes are unlikely to sanction a mid-season sale.

Maddison, who started his career with Coventry City, has been called up to the England national team on a couple of occasions, but on both instances, he has failed to earn any gametime under Gareth Southgate.

Maddison wanted by United in January


Manchester United will reportedly make an approach to sign James Maddison from Leicester City when the transfer window reopens in the New Year.

The Red Devils suffered a 2- 1 loss to Crystal Palace in the recent league clash and this has already left them five points behind table-toppers Liverpool.

According to The Mirror, the club are likely to recruit a creative playmaker in the New Year after failing to do so during the recently-concluded transfer window.

The same report suggests that Maddison has been earmarked as the prime target but the club may struggle to find the breakthrough over a transfer deal with the Foxes.

The east Midlands outfit played hardball over the negotiations for Harry Maguire until a £80m fee was agreed earlier this month and it is claimed that the Foxes would demand a similar fee for Maddison.

Still, they have generally been reluctant to lose their players at the midstage of the season and they are most likely to reject the advances from the Red Devils.

Maddison bagged seven goals and seven assists in his maiden Premier League season last term. He has started the new season in good form with two assists from three appearances.

Chelsea attacker set for new five-year contract?

Hudson-Odoi set for new Blues contract


Chelsea are prepared to reward Callum Hudson-Odoi with a new five-year contract before reintroducing him to first-team action next month.

The youngster has been sidelined for the past four months with an Achilles injury but he has recently returned to first-team training with his teammates.

According to The Telegraph, the west London giants are in advanced negotiations over a new deal with the winger and they are optimistic of committing him to a five-year contract before he makes his comeback.

Hudson-Odoi is currently on a £25,000-a-week package at the Blues and he stands the chance of boosting his salary by at least seven times, should he extend his contract with the club.

The England international is presently contracted to the Capital outfit until the summer of 2020 and has been linked with a big-money move to Bayern Munich in the past.

The German champions seem to have ended their interest following a series of failed bids in January and are unlikely to come up with a renewed approach in the near future.

Chelsea receive injury boost with attacker returning to training

Hudson-Odoi returns to regular training


Chelsea have received a much-needed injury boost with Callum Hudson-Odoi returning to first-team training following his recovery from an Achilles problem.

The England international picked up the injury during the month of April and he thereafter went through a surgery which has ruled him out of action to date.

However, it appears that he is on course to make a comeback by the middle of September after joining his teammates in regular training for the first time this season.

Hudson-Odoi has less than 12 months remaining on his existing deal with the Blues and so far, he has shown no indication whether he would be willing to extend his stay.

Blues boss Frank Lampard has remained positive when asked about the potential contract renewal but Hudson-Odoi may wait for a couple of months to assess whether he can command a regular role under the new manager.

Chelsea have managed to secure the single point after the opening two league games of the season. They are scheduled to face Norwich City on the road this weekend.
