Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers confirmed the club’s wish to strengthen in the summer transfer window, recently. Now we know how much they’d spend.
On Friday, Brendan Rodgers conducted his most keenly anticipated press conference during his reign at Leicester City. This is because the Foxes face their most important match of the season versus Manchester United on Sunday, at King Power Stadium. The victorious team – a draw for United – will automatically enter at least the qualifying round of 2020/21’s Champions League competition.
United currently occupy the spot above Leicester in the Premier League table. Along with managing a one point lead on their European rivals; despite the latter maintaining a consistent and substantial lead on the northern English side for most of the campaign.
If Leicester eventually only secure Europa League football for the upcoming term, then they will still be able to buy some exceptional domestic and foreign talent to add to their ranks on Filbert Way.
However, if the outcome is qualification to the more prestigious tournament, Brendan Rodgers will attract the elite athletes from the transfer market. Furthermore, the boss may even tempt players who are ‘not for sale’ for the right, inflated price. Especially with the lure of the CL.
Leicester City boss confirms club’s maximum spend capacity
Rodgers held the club’s latest press conference this week, before facing Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side, and again talked summer signings. Saying, regardless of whether it’s CL or EL next season, the East Midlanders will strengthen the roster.
Because the Northern Irishman also confirmed Leicester City would not spend £60 million on a single player; we can therefore expect anything up to that fee to possibly be bid for prospective signings. Ruling out the upper echelon of talent, whom were unlikely to sign to begin with.
