Maddison, though, had to defend himself after his respect for the club was questioned
Maddison tweeted after Fofana was unveiled by Chelsea: 'Good luck on your new chapter little bro!!!
'Pleasure to play with you and share a changing room with you. A good friend and a Rolls Royce of a centre half @Wesley_Fofanaa.'
His friendly message to the former Leicester star though received some criticism among the club's supporters however.
One user commented: 'Have some respect for the club and the fans please. He s*** on us.
'Don't take a five-year contract then jump at the first 'dream' move that gives you double your salary.'
Fofana, who joined Leicester in 2020, was eager to get a move away to join Chelsea
Maddison defended his comments as he fired back: 'Probably slightly harsh to question my respect for the club and fans just because I wished a teammate and friend of 2 years good luck at their new club.
'I understand the frustration but if a player desperately wants to leave, it's probably best for all parties to let them.'
Fofana agreed a seven-year deal with the west London outfit to add to Thomas Tuchel's defensive options.
Maddison has also been linked with a move away from the King Power Stadium this summer, with Newcastle among the clubs interested.

The Foxes have struggled to bring in new players this summer, but are hopeful of signing Reims centre-half Wout Faes before the window shuts today.
Leicester's off-field issues have been compounded by their on-field struggles so far this season.
After five games, the Foxes sit bottom of the table following one draw and four defeats.
