Maddison In New Contract Talks; We're Selling No-One.

My gut feeling is that due to his size his physicality was seen as an issue. Leicester got lucky with players like Kante, Mahrez and Riccy who all show talent can beat genetics. But at the same time I feel Adrien Silva failed not due to talent but because he couldn’t cope with the league. He had been linked with Spurs so teams definitely rated his technical skill. 

 

For me Ricardo is genuine world class. Doubt we will have a better RB ever again!

We thought that about S.Whitworth...!

Don't want to put a dampener on things but Read an article just the other day (cant remember where) that was basically banging on about man utd and Maddison and it mentioned that city were looking to improve his contract but stated that his agent reported that they were nowhere near a deal and that it was unlikely that anything would be signed before the end of this season.

 

Probably all made up TBH either that or agent trying to up the ante and put the hurry up on things?

I very much doubt whether any rated players will move during the January window. The brain - dead media will rabbit on and on about it but nowt will happen. I don't know what our players earn but it will be in our interest to keep them among the highest earners in the premiership. If you don't waste money on dud transfers you can do that.

Standard from an agent of a player who's hot property. Deserves it.

Bloody hell. Agents and newspapers got to stop writing about our players. Maddison and Chilwell are on long term deals already, and the club cannot afford to keep adjusting their salary upwards every 6 months. Having said that, I think Maddison deserves a raise alongside Ricardo. Chilwell though is already reportedly on 70-80k and if he is going up to a reported 100k, Ricardo (who is way better though not English) would rightly feel hard done by on reportedly “only” around 70-80k a week, and then Tielemans ...

English players (Good ones) have a premium on them ....... it’s just the way it is 
 

Ricky p won’t mind - he isn’t that kind of guy.  Probably the same with YT ...,,

i think the point is we wont be selling anyone in jan unless we want to ……. irrespective of new contracts etc, next summer is a different matter

Exactly, but he's on a long contract anyway and I don't think he's likely to do a Marhez because if he wants to play for England, he's going to need to be playing games, play well, and after his casino episode, prove himself temperament wise to a certain Mr Southgate.

Not selling?  If an utterly ridiculous bid comes in then I think we would personally. 
 

however I think it is unlikely that a bid ridiculous enough will land. January is a poor time to buy in general but a decent one to sell in.

This is just our way of a salary increase and a massive bid needed to steal them away from us. It's also a GFY to all the so called  big clubs.

Can’t see anyone important leaving in January and in any case let’s just focus on - and enjoy - the here and now.

 

Results over the next few weeks will probably go a long way towards shaping the future of our club (and the players’ ambitions) anyway.

 

The promise of champions league football next season is a massive dangling carrot for everyone.

I don't think this is right. No way Tielemans comes to us on 30k

Correct.. this would suggest both he and Ghezzal took a pay cut to join us which obviously wouldn’t happen.

I strongly suggest this is invention/guesswork. The biggest giveaway is the appearance of Vicente Iborra........

I suspect that’s from last season and represents what we were paying of YT’s wage whilst Monaco picked up the balance ??

A very logical thought, yes.

Maddison's a lot younger than I thought, feels like he's been around much longer than that.

Yeah we're going to break our transfer record and pay him half of what we pay Kelechi Iheanacho. That's got to be what we were covering of his wages whilst Silva went the other way last season.
