Rather than making exorbitant bids for unknown quantities in the Premier League, Leicester City have taken the intelligent step to keep the talent they have.
Knowing that the transfer market is set to open on June 10 is as encouraging as it is anxious for Leicester City supporters. They always have an uneasy knowledge and understanding that their eminent players will be targeted by the most iconic clubs in England, from Spain and by top teams elsewhere around Europe.
Though that fear is contrasted by the positive feeling – thanks to the Srivaddhanaprabha family’s great influence over the Foxes – that the East Midlands side can also capture an inexpensive gem, or rough diamond to clean and develop.
Additionally, remarkably, for some of us old to remember darker Leicester days, Brendan Rodgers’ outfit can now even challenge, rival and hijack huge clubs such as Manchester United, Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur over their deals to entice signatures of incredible talent.
Leicester City act to protect stars
Now, while not placing too much emphasis on money: it does speak the loudest in professional sport, which is obviously a business, as finance does in any form of commerce. With that in mind, as well as the lure of significant top-flight sides, Leicester City have moved to protect their first-class assets.
James Maddison and Caglar Soyuncu are reportedly set to restart negotiations on improved deals to remain at King Power Stadium. With Daily Mail suggesting that talks had already begun before the coronavirus outbreak disrupted the world. Wes Morgan will also apparently receive a one-year extension, along with Christian Fuchs.
