Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea target deemed too expensive by PIF despite his “amazing” reputation

According to The Athletic, Eddie Howe’s Newcastle United may not have the financial means to compete with Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur for the right to sign James Maddison from Leicester City during the January transfer window. Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur are also interested in Maddison.

According to the report that was released this morning, Newcastle is reportedly still interested in bringing Maddison to St. James’ Park after having wanted to bring him there in the summer of 2022. Leicester is one of Newcastle’s rivals in the Premier League.

However, the report states that the owners of Newcastle, Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund, are unlikely to be able to reach an agreement with the Foxes because of their “asking price,” which makes a mid-season transfer unlikely.

The amount of money that Leicester want for their England international attacking midfielder is not mentioned in the report, despite the fact that Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount referred to him as “amazing” on talkSPORT earlier this month.

The stance taken by Newcastle on James Maddison is beneficial for both Tottenham and Chelsea.

This will be encouraging news for Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur, two clubs that have been rumored to be interested in Maddison.

This week, CBS Sports journalist Ben Jacobs revealed to GiveMeSport that London clubs Chelsea and Tottenham are interested in signing Maddison. According to Jacobs, Maddison is considering waiting until the end of the season to make a decision regarding his future, and he is leaning toward staying at Leicester until then.

This season, Maddison has played 13 matches for Leicester in the Premier League and has contributed seven goals and four assists. He is also a member of the England squad that will compete in the World Cup in Qatar in 2022.
