While Portuguese Leicester City star Ricardo Pereira insists he’s happy with the Foxes, his ambiguity leaves the door open for a transfer.
One month today, or a even a week prior to that on June 12, Premier League football will return. At least to our television screens. Leicester City haven’t been given an opponent yet, but they will be revealed fairly soon.
The Foxes have, however, been given the go-ahead to begin training in small groups with PPE, though full contact is not to be permitted presently. Many City players have expressed a desire to get back to playing, along with socialising with their fellow squad members.
Leicester City star leaves the door open
In other news, there isn’t really any other news. Transfer rumours are now accelerating: with every one of Leicester City’s stars who are under age-30 being linked with huge transfers to significant sides.
Ricardo Pereira has been one of the Foxes’ standout performers over the last two campaigns. He actually took home the Players’ Player of the Season award, as well as the club’s Player of the Year accolade in 2019, too.
Hence the interest in the extremely modern, attacking right-back. Who is now apparently a much wanted commodity in world football. Paris Saint-Germain – well their Twitter fans at a minimum – certainly seem to be after the Portugal international. That is if speculation is to be taken as truth.
During lockdown due to the coronavirus Ricardo has given quite a few interviews, mainly to European outlets. He always honestly says he’s enjoying his time under Brendan Rodgers and playing in a great team. Nothing wrong with that, obviously.
Neither is it a problem for him to say that he’s, quote, “fine at Leicester”. Naturally that means he is happy here but, as the 26-year-old says, he’ll always “look for the best for his career”. That means, in Ricardo’s words: playing for the the best teams and taking a step forward in his profession.
In Foxes of Leicester’s opinion, that translates to another year with the King Power club whilst Champions League football is available. Then possibly a switch to PSG or an equally high profile side. Read more of the ‘mixed message’ at Sport Witness.
