Tottenham seeking to hijack Newcastle target James Maddison, Leicester City demand £60M

In the cutthroat world of football, transfer dealings are often marred by controversies and underhanded tactics. Premier League supergiants, Manchester United, were found both receiving and initiating ends of these deal hijacks related to English Superstar David Beckham, 2004 and Paul Pogba, 2016.

And now the closet rivals of the Red Devils from the last season, Newcastle United are in a similar situation as Tottenham Hotspurs are in a hijacking mood of Toons closely followed English midfielder James Maddison.

A very unconvincing performance from the Spurs last season force them to stay active in the transfer market to reinforce their troops for the upcoming 2023/24 season. 

Which Club Should James Maddison join?

As Leicester City were eliminated from the Premier League after finishing at 18 places in the points table. Many of their star players are likely to leave the club this summer and may join a new club.

 James Maddison

James Maddison the 26-year-old attacking midfielder is set to leave the club. Newcastle and Tottenham are both shown their interest in the English midfielder. 

Tow clubs are sitting in two different situations. Newcastle finished 4th place last season and are ready to put their feet in the Champions League next season after 20 years.

However, the Spurs didn’t have a good season in 2022. They are not going to participate in any of the major competitions in Europe next season. But the Spurs are in pole position to sign the midfielder.

Although the black and white shirts have previously shown great interest in the midfielder now they are running behind Spurs, as it is quite clear their priorities are changed.  

While Tottenham is expected to make a fresh new bid for the Maddison. The news comes from the source, that Spurs provided a joint bid to secure the sign of the English midfielder. 

However, that bid was rejected by Harvey Barnes and Spurs are looking to provide a fresh new bid for the midfielder. It was quite clear that Spurs will be the midfielder’s next possible destination.

Is James Maddison worth £60M?

Newcastle is in pole position to sign Sandro Tonali from Milan worth 70 million Euro with some add-ons. Due to this reason they went far behind to sign James Maddison.

Last summer Newcastle made two offers for the ambitious English midfielder worth 40 million euros and 50 million euros. These two bids were rejected by Leicester last term.

Leicester set a price tag of 60 million euro on their midfielder are not going to sell him below that price. After the relegation of the Foxes from the nation’s top league, Maddison is desperate to find a new club for him. 

So, only the Spurs are the frontrunners to sign him it may happen that Leicester cut some price for the player.
