James Maddison signs mega-money Leicester extension in blow to Man Utd


- Advertisment -

JAMES MADDISON has agreed to a double-your-money deal at Leicester.

In a massive boost to the Foxes ahead of their Champions League shootout against Manchester United today, Maddison committed himself to the club until 2025.

James Maddison has agreed to a double-your-money contract extension at Leicester

The England midfielder, who misses this afternoon’s vital clash through a hip injury, will earn around £95,000 a week including bonuses.

That package makes him one of Leicester’s highest-paid players behind top-earner Jamie Vardy, who is on around £120,000 a week.

The Midlands club is expected to announce Maddison’s contract as early as this week.

Maddison, 23, who made his senior England debut in November, had been linked with a big-money move to United.

Leicester signed him in 2018 from Norwich for £22million and extending his initial five-year deal is an important statement of intent by the club.

Brendan Rodgers’ side are fifth in the Premier League table, one point behind United and Chelsea ahead of today’s final day of the season.

But even if the Foxes fall short of a top-four finish on this occasion, the club’s owners have no intention of reining in their ambitions.

A new £100m training ground is due to open soon in Seagrave — and Rodgers believes it will play a big part in helping Leicester continue to compete at the top end of the Premier League.

Convincing Maddison to extend his stay is another piece in the jigsaw.

Talks to agree a new deal for the star began well before the Covid-19 pandemic.
