Man Utd target James Maddison wants to win trophies

Leicester City midfielder James Maddison has a desire to win trophies.

During a Puma Football Instagram Live chat with Thierry Henry, Maddison said (via Leicester Mercury): “My biggest goal now is to win trophies.

“In my house, I have a trophy cabinet and there are not many in there. There are individual awards but no trophies. I want trophies.

“When we lost over two legs to Aston Villa in the Carabao Cup semi-finals, it is a feeling I have never had before and that’s when I knew something has to change.

“It was heartbreaking. Fingers crossed I can now make that next step.

“We have Chelsea in the FA Cup quarter-finals and hopefully, we get to play that.

“My mouth gets wet when I walk around the Leicester training ground and the stadium and see the pictures of them winning the league and hear the players talk about it.”

Maddison has been a key player for Leicester City since joining from Norwich, who he played for in the Championships, but he has been linked with a possible move to Old Trafford, as per the Manchester Evening News.

Although United are not exactly winning trophies for fun at the moment, the team is moving in the right direction and we don’t think Maddison would turn down the opportunity to play for United if it came about…

The Red Devils are still in with a chance of winning silverware this season if the season returns and the remainder of the Europa League and FA Cup is played.

Leicester may be in a higher league position right now but over the next year or two that should change, especially with United trying to fix elements of the club’s running that restricted us on the pitch since Sir Alex Ferguson’s retirement.
