MANCHESTER UNITED are clear favourites to sign Leicester City star James Maddison this summer.
But SunSport understands the midfielder does NOT want to leave the King Power Stadium after a magnificent debut season.

Maddison created more chances than any other player in the Premier League this term.
And bosses Claude Puel and Brendan Rodgers were also rewarded with seven goals and seven assists as Maddison took the plaudits.
The 22-year-old’s fine form was even recognised by Gareth Southgate as he received an international call-up for England’s Nations League matches with Croatia and Spain in October.
And it’s now been claimed that Maddison could already be on the move to one of the country’s ‘big six’.
Betway odds on James Maddison's next move
Man Utd – 4/11
Liverpool – 20/1
Arsenal – 20/1
Man City – 20/1
Spurs – 20/1
Bookies Betway has Man Utd as dead certs to land the former Norwich man.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is looking to overhaul his squad this summer, and the Red Devils have been priced accordingly at 4/11.
Arsenal, Liverpool, Man City and Spurs are all given odds of 20/1, while Chelsea are not included due to their transfer ban.
And it appears clear that the bookies reckon Maddison will end up at the Theatre of Dreams this summer.

However, SunSport has exclusively revealed that Maddison has no plans to turn his back on Rodgers’ project.
The playmaker is the focal point of the team and believes things can only get better with the former champions after a strong end to the campaign.
Leicester are believed to value at Maddison at £60million too, and that alone could dissuade United and others from making an approach.
