Leicester City midfielder James Maddison has said that he wants to play at the highest level that his ability will allow him to.

The 22-year old’s future has been a hot talking point for ages now, thanks to the never-ending interest of Manchester United.

With an unbeaten Leicester due to visit the Old Trafford this weekend, many are dubbing the Premier League clash as an audition for Maddison – which, by the way, is pure rubbish.

The man himself, meanwhile, has had something very interesting to say. We would suggest that you do not read too much into it.

"“I want to play at the highest level my ability will allow me to,” he told The Daily Mirror.“I like to think I’ve my head screwed on with the transfers I’ve made.“I’ve played League One, in Scotland, the Championship and the Premier League. I worked my way up.”"

Harry Maguire has already left the King Power Stadium for a seat in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s bus, and there remains no shortage of people who expect Maddison to follow suit.

His reputation now only getting better and a place in Gareth Southgate’s England – despite being an unused substitute in a 4-0 win over Bulgaria – surely a matter of when rather than if, it would be a bit silly were the no.10 to leave.

He has a leading role at the club and is central to the plans going forward, he has a top coach and fantastic young players around him. That’s all that any player would really want.

But that said, the lure of clubs like United is something else. And when they knock on your door, you just cannot ignore it – like Maguire couldn’t when the Red Devils came for him.

Like it or not but there is a feeling that he will almost inevitably leave next season.
