Leicester City accept offer from Manchester City, Chelsea and Besiktas also in chase

DATE: 03.07.2018 - THE CUNNING FOX - BLOG

 

The Riyad Mahrez transfer saga looks close to being finished. Manchester City are,
according to Sky Sports, certain to win the race with a 60 million move to be finalised this week


No surprise to see Riyad Mahrez leaving and in a way it makes Leicester City move forward, or will it be a a step in the wrong direction. At the moment no player is able to replace Mahrez at Leicester, but hopefully Claude Puel can make moves that will cover the loss.

We all know how clubs such as Arsenal, Tottenham and Southampton all have been tapped heavilly during the last seasons and not been able to move in the right direction. Sacking managers is not the answer when you sell players and blame everyone else.

To find good replacements for your best players is not possible at all times and watching Tottenham who have sold Modric, Bale and Walker to other clubs and suffered, the same with Arsenal, selling Sanchez and several other players. We all know the story down at Southampton who are one of the largest suppliers of talent in the game today.

Rumours are flying and the latest to be linked with a move away is
Kasper Schmeichel, being linked with Chelsea and Roma, who could both be in the market for a goalkeeper close to the season opener. But few believe such a move will happen.

Besiktas are favourites to land a move for
Ahmed Musa, but it could be that the Nigerian international will be one Claude Puel will look at during pre-seasan and maybe a Mahrez move could open doors for Musa.

Claude Puel is again said to be interested in
Sofiane Boufal. His situation at Southampton looks a bit difficult, not being a regular in the first team. But few doubts the potential of the 24 year old Morocco international.

So the big question is, will City suffer heavilly with the loss of Mahrez, or will they be able to cover it all, and move forward. New faces Ricardo Pereira, James Maddison and Jonny Evans will hopefully be good additions.

Looking at the grim stats, you will probably be a bit uncertain. Evans can climb back to his best, Maddison is unproven on this level and Ricardo Pereira has a very offensive attitude in a team that might have to defend better than attacking from a defensive point of view.

We all hope that Puel will be able to take this club forward, but with the sale of Mahrez, it certainly looks the totally opposite.
