Leicester City did, according to this website, turn down an offer to bring Yaya Toure to the club as part of the deal that took Riyad Mahrez to Manchester City. Both Patrick Roberts and Toure were discussed as possible swops to get the price for Mahrez a bit lower.
Despite seeing Leicester City well place in mid table many fans are not satisfied and also the Leicester Mercury talks about adding the quality of Esteban Cambiasso back in the Leicester City team. A mature player with a vision and eye so that we can start winning games at home again.
The fact is that fans and certain pundits talk so strange that you cannot really understand what they are saying. Everything looks like it is wrong, it’s not, Leicester City are doing better than ever, looking away from that 15/16 season.
Constantly talk about a player that can push out Jamie Vardy up front, finding a midfielder who can run the show better than Ndidi and Mendy and really fixing all the problems that the team have at the moment.
The fact is clear, Leicester City are fine, but Puel is still struggling with his squad balance inheriting a lot of strange signings done by Craig Shakespeare and Claudio Ranieri. Why all these players were added and not enough players shipped out, that is a difficult question.
Puel is a good manager, one of the best, with experience from the Champions League, winning titles and reaching EFL Cup finals. So just be patient with him and let him do his work, no one could do it better, we are in the top 10 for god sake.
What we don’t know is how Puel monitors his transfer deals and what he says no to, surely bringing in more “dead meat” would be terrible and with fans views like we have seen and dealings done in the way they are demanding, it would be the end of the football club, wealing and dealing, chopping and changing after each game or even after each goal scored against us.
If you look at the form of Yaya Toure at the moment he is surely not an alternative, cancelling his contract at Olympiakos. Toure will most likely end up in China or India, don’t see him back in Premier League.
