Sky Sports pundit Jobi McAnuff says Tottenham got James Maddison for a cut-price deal in the summer
One man’s treasure is another man’s trash. Leicester City’s relegation was trash for the Foxes but it turned out to be treasure for Tottenham Hotspur. The Lilywhites, due to Leicester’s demotion to the second-tier of English football, got a cut-price deal for James Maddison.
And the way Madders has transformed our midfield is tremendous. Goals, assists, and top-class performances week in and week out. You name it. His partnership with Son Heung-min is reaping benefits for Ange Postecoglou.
We all knew what the 26-year-old was capable of from his time in the East Midlands. However, he has propelled his own game to a whole new tangent after moving to North London, and we are loving it.
In 10 appearances across all competitions, Maddison has three goals and five assists to his name. Considering the £40m we paid for him earlier in the summer window, we can agree with Jobi McAnuff about the deal being ‘ridiculously low’ for the levels of performance he’s putting in. He said the following to Sky Sports (h/t Leicester Mercury):
“You look at Maddison, he went for a lot, you see what he’s gone on to do now at Spurs, we’re talking about a £40 million fee which seems ridiculously low for what he’s doing, but what it does, it enables them to just get that process going, get the bodies in that they want.”Jobi McAnuff on tottenham getting a cut price-deal for james maddison – leicester mercury
McAnuff’s perspective on the matter resonates with many Tottenham supporters. The acquisition of James Maddison at such an affordable price not only represents a savvy financial move but also underscores the club’s commitment to strengthening the squad with top-class talent.
Madders for the Lilywhites
The addition of Maddison has injected a new dimension into Tottenham’s midfield, providing a creative spark and playmaking prowess that had been lacking.
As Tottenham strive to climb the Premier League ladder and compete with the best, having a player of Maddison’s calibre is a game-changer. His performances have garnered acclaim from fans, pundits, and the footballing world, further reinforcing the belief that the cut-price deal was a masterstroke.
Maddison’s journey from Leicester to Tottenham is not just a story of a player changing clubs; it’s a story of a player realizing his full potential and thriving in a new environment. The Tottenham faithful are relishing every moment of his on-field brilliance, and his partnership with Son Heung-min has the potential to create even more magic in the future.
