I quickly formed the view that Marcus Maddison had an exaggerated view of his own abilities and value and that he would have undermined the great team spirit at Charlton. This has now been confirmed by remarks made by the chairman of Peterborough United: Why deal broke down
The deal with Charlton would have been for £1.5m plus £500,000 after 50 games and another £500,000 if we were promoted to the top flight. There was a sell on clause for when Maddison joined Real Madrid. In the view of the Posh chairman, Maddison made totally unreasonable wage demands and never wanted to go to London.
He has, of course, gone 'oop North' to Hull and will no doubt be a handful when we play there later in the year.
