Newcastle United are getting ready to present Leicester City with a third proposal for James Maddison, said Martin Hardy of The Times.
The representatives of “Magpie” tried very hard to bring in an offensive midfielder during the last summer transfer window.
However, the team at King Power Stadium showed no desire to prematurely end their relationship with one of their best players and rejected two offers for the 25-year-old. The last one was worth £ 45 million (€ 50.2 million).
These failures have in no way discouraged the Newcastle United authorities, who will once again seek cooperation with James Maddison this winter.
The team from St James’ Park is hoping that this time the England international will show a willingness to change the environment in the face of the poor performance of “Lisa” in the early part of the season – six defeats in seven games and the last place in the table with a point scored.
The Magpies do not intend to significantly increase their offer and expect that Leicester City will lower its exorbitant expectations for a player whose current contract expires on June 30, 2024, because they may not have a better opportunity to earn on him if they end the struggle in the relegation zone in the Premier League.
The 25-year-old attacking midfielder has made seven matches in the ongoing competition, scoring three hits and an assist.
