Leicester City have a clear ‘non-selling club’ stance on players like Caglar Soyuncu. But when some teams come knocking, money and status talks.
Transfer talk seems more widespread and fanciful these days. With football beginning again around the world and the usual off-season transfer window appearing to be more likely, it is no surprise we are locked in the rumour mill. Leicester City seem prevalent, even ubiquitous regarding speculation. Which is more to do with their stars than buying others.
Nevertheless, Foxes of Leicester will strive to dissect and assess every single piece of reporting with regards to likelihood, suitability and costs. Brendan Rodgers has said the club will still conduct business, although it will be disrupted.
Leicester City’s Caglar Soyuncu wanted
Some people were possibly shocked to hear that Turkish international Caglar Soyuncu was being monitored by superclub Barcelona. Well, his agent has confirmed the story – saying that the Spanish giants actually desired the centre-back before he signed for Freiberg. That element was surprising, to be frank.
According to Mirror, Soyuncu’s representative Mustafa Dogru alleges that his client could possibly be playing for Barcelona by the end of the summer. Dogru mentions Liverpool as the only Premier League outfit who have the power to sign the Turk. Due to his “economic conditions”, whatever that means.
The King Power bosses would do well to offer the 23-year-old a bumper new contract, in order to assist his decision to stay on Filbert Way. Which is probably exactly what the agent is angling for.
Though Soyuncu is contracted to Leicester City until 2023 and recently said that he’s happy with the Foxes, not to mention his belief that a switch wouldn’t benefit his career presently. Although, when a side like Barca come knocking, it must surely be a very difficult option to refuse. They may never return with a bid; however, no offer has apparently been made yet.
