Football rumours: Tottenham leading the chase to land Leicester’s James Maddison

What the papers say

Tottenham are leading the chase to land Leicester midfielder James Maddison, the Daily Telegraph reports. The 26-year-old has one full season left on his contract at the King Power Stadium and he could leave after five seasons.

The Independent says Inter Miami are willing to offer Lionel Messi an equity stake in the club to convince him to join this summer, although the 35-year-old would prefer to stay in Europe until the 2024 Copa America in order to try and win the Champions League one last time.

The Daily Mail adds that Leicester are hoping caretaker bosses Adam Sadler and Mike Stowell will lead them to safety but they are sounding out other candidates ahead of Saturday’s vital game against Bournemouth.
