The 23-year-old, who joined from Norwich last summer, is high up on United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s transfer wishlist and plenty of reports have floated around that the England international could be on his way to Old Trafford.

‘Of course I am,’ Maddison said after the fan asked if he will stay at the club on BT Sport’s Twitter account.

‘It was one of the best decisions I’ve made, coming here. I love it.’   

The attacking midfielder opened up about the struggles of being in isolation with the Premier League unfinished. 

‘I’m just isolating, the same as everyone else. It’s tough at the minute because we have to stay inside but kind of keep fit as well because we don’t know when the season is going to resume,’ he told the lifelong Leicester fan.

‘We’re just doing individual stuff at home. Brendan Rodgers sorted out his staff to send us stuff to do at home so we’re still keeping fit, we’re not sitting at home on the beers and the cakes, don’t worry about that!’

The Foxes were having an incredibly strong league season and were third in the table when the campaign came to a halt because of the coronavirus pandemic. Maddison admitted it has been tough on the club as they want to confirm their Champions League spot for next season. 

‘This situation is not ideal because we were doing so well and we were in the spaces,’ he said. ‘We just want to finish and try to secure one of those spaces because Champions League football is something I’ve always wanted to play in.’
