‘World-class’ talent must be tempted to join Newcastle or Tottenham now

0

James Maddison, in the wake of new Premier League club Leicester City’s attack, admits it will be ‘a sigh of relief’ when the transfer window closes on September 1St after another summer of constant thoughts.

But can you blame Maddison, after Leicester’s sixth defeat in the top flight, for counting down the days until the next season opens? Despite an impressive start to the new season, at least from a personal point of view, the 25-year-old has also been overlooked by Gareth Southgate’s new England squad.

The World Cup is now a pipe dream, even for Southgate is aware of Maddison’s skills. Whatever you think.

“He’s a technically gifted player,” the England boss said back in 2019. “He has an eye for a powerful pass and his passing is world class. Top notch. too.”

Now, Maddison is used to being disappointed about her international ambitions. But another Englishman – and Leicester’s dismal form on the club stage – is starting to look like a bitter drinker.

One, with less than two years left on his King Power contract, almost shot in the Foxes eyes.

Will James Maddison leave Leicester City for Tottenham Hotspur or Newcastle United?

Newcastle United, whose £40 million summer move was rejected, are already planning to make Maddison their first January target (Northern Echo). Spurs will come calling again, according to Dean Jones, after the former Norwich star ended up at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium last weekend; a goal that should have been more than a mere consolation in a six-point blowout.

Brendan Rodgers said £40 million would cover three-quarters of his left leg. When his contract was dropped, another, the same request was no laughing matter.

A time or two ago, Tottenham or Newcastle were ready to go down for Maddison; when Leicester were established as champions in the Champions League. You can’t say that anymore these days. Antonio Conte’s Tottenham side are just a point off the top despite not finishing second. Newcastle’s run of one win in seven, meanwhile, shouldn’t detract from all the progress they’ve made on and off the pitch over the past 12 months. A move to a club, you would think, would enhance Maddison’s English prospects. Although January has arrived at the end of the season as far as Qatar is concerned.

Leicester City are now five points behind. Although that Derby County’s 2007/08 side had a better record this term. Things keep getting worse. Jamie Vardy and Jonny Evans are no less, while Youri Tielemans is a free agent in 2023. The clubhouse looks the same; the other aims at the end of a decaying house.

The phrase ‘jump from a sinking ship’ comes to mind.
