The transfer saga regarding Harry Maguire looks to continue as nothing is yet confirmed officially. But this looks as a close deal soon to go through. The move could then inject a number of very special happenings that again could kick start a number of special deals.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer could finance the Maguire deal with a sale of Romelu Lukaku to Inter, who again could let Ivan Perisic leave and join Leicester City. Perisic is keen on a move to the Premier League and at the age of 30, still a player with a lot to offer.
TCF would personally hope that St Etienne or any other club is willing to go all in and sign Papy Mendy who is more suited for a top team in another league and hopefully can gain interest after a relatively good previous season at Leicester City. This could bring in more cash and hopefully see more signings done by Brendan Rodgers.
Hoffenheim midfielder Nadiem Amiri is linked with a move and if Brendan Rodgers can be able to bring in the German U.21 international, he might be doing the best business in football this summer. This is a “player in the making” in the same age group as James Maddison, Wilfred Ndidi, Youri Tielemans and Hamza Choudhury, building up a solid base of midfielders able to circulate wide and in the central as midfield and forward play is gelling much more these days.
Recent talk about Gareth Bale and a possible switch to Leicester City, talked up as a loan deal, could of course be an interesting move, but as days are passing, Zinedine Zidane looks more happy with a Bale sale. Leicester City could be one of few clubs to fund such a move if they ship out Harry Maguire, and with a certain “Andy King” marketing Leicester City and still looks like a man for the squad, could this be possible, would say no, but again nothing surprises TCF anymore.
China is an option for Bale, but that would proably be the end to a possible return to a top 10 Premier League club in the future. Bale (30) could have a few more good seasons left, but “buring out” in China, would not suit his future.
The fact that Brendan Rodgers believe that he has the options needed in defense makes it fun to see all of these offensive creativity linked with Leicester City.
