Manchester United drop their interest in Leicester City attacker James Maddison, according to a report.

Manchester United are reportedly unlikely to move for Leicester City attacker James Maddison this summer.

The Red Devils were thought to have identified the 23-year-old as a leading transfer target.

Bruno Fernandes arrived at Old Trafford from Sporting Lisbon in January, though, while Aston Villa's Jack Grealish and Birmingham City's Jude Bellingham continue to be linked with moves to the club.

According to 90min, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side are expecting Maddison to sign a new contract with Leicester, effectively ending their interest in the England international.

The former Norwich City youngster still has three years left to run on his current deal at the King Power Stadium but could be in line for a pay rise, having become an important figure for the club.

Maddison has scored nine times in 35 appearances for Brendan Rodgers's side this term.
