Thankfully for Leicester City supporters, it seems a sports media company’s detective work dismisses the Caglar Soyuncu to Barcelona rumour.

There’s not a lot of good news around at the moment, admittedly. But this potential update could be great news for Leicester City and their supporters. If you have been living under a transfer rumour-rock for the past, well forever, then fair play to you. Although you’re missing some quite spectacular speculation on the Foxes.

More and more we are hearing that the East Midlands side’s best players are probably going to be snapped up, as mega-teams come in for them. Clubs like Manchester United, Chelsea and Arsenal, even tortured Tottenham Hotspur are currently rebuilding. And rightly so. All of them will have dossiers on Foxes.

While plucky ‘little’ Leicester showcase their staff’s diligence regularly, along with a stunningly talented roster of youthful skill. The aim being: the King Power outfit stealing one of the ‘big six’ spots – which they’ve managed to do with 2015/16’s miraculous marvel and now again in 2020.

Arguably the most worrying conjecture – or legitimate source material, whatever the case may respectively be – is the element concerning Caglar Soyuncu’s impending departure to Barcelona. Naturally we’d all be upset to see him leave – especially for a reported less than £50 million. In addition the City fans would presumably wish him well: Barca being a dream club for anyone, of course.

News outlets in Turkey began circling the story, which was then backed on Monday by Soyuncu’s agent, Mustafa Dogru. Turkish football expert Onder Ozen also claims the gossip is true.

Although the rumour, which has gathered pace of late, is disputed by some trawling football detective work by media company Sport Witness. They say that the report is only really prevalent in Turkey, with Spanish press merely repeating initial hearsay.
