Leicester City will not sell Tottenham Hotspur target James Maddison to Eddie Howe’s Newcastle United in the summer transfer window, according to 90 Minutes.
90 minutes reported that Tottenham and Newcastle want to sign Maddison from rivals Leicester in the Premier League this summer.
Magpies received two offers for the 25-year-old England attacking midfielder which were turned down, according to 90 Minutes.
Can Leicester sell Tottenham and Newcastle with James Madison’s goal?
Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers has stated publicly that he will not sell Madison this summer, but, as we all know, he’s talking about the money.
Newcastle’s second bid for the playmaker was £45m plus add-ons.
Now, it remains to be seen if the Magpies put on a third show, and if they do, how long they are willing to go for it.
Tottenham’s interest in Madison could make things interesting in the final weeks of the summer transfer window.
Now, we don’t think Tottenham would pay £45m for a 25-year-old attacking midfielder who has one England cap, but you never know.
Madison – Ex-Tottenham striker described him as ‘fantastically consistent’ Gary Lineker on Twitter in May 2022 – He may be tempted himself to move to Tottenham, who will play in the Champions League next season and be coached by world-class Antonio Conte.
