The season is yet to come to an end and still 9 points to fight for and a possible survival in Premier League, but even if that happens major changes looks to be on at Leicester.

We have not heard anything regarding new contracts being given to anyone and we all know that a great number of players are out of contract this summer, with most of them seen as departures and no movement regarding new deals being made.

There could also be major changes in and around the clubs administration and sport section as the money splashed in to this project looks far from being spend in the best way possible.

We have seen in the past that changes are made to get progress and new ideas into the environment and surely Khun Top will not accept what is going on at the club at this time.

Martin Keown labeled Leicester’s season a disgrace, coming into it from a semi-final in Europe and also having a prior season far from the relegation zone. The fact that the club also managed to keep Youri Tielemans and Caglar Soyuncu at the club and making the addition of Wout Faes possible, shows the will to try to bring funds to a manager that in the past made massive signings at cost level Leicester in real cannot afford.

Anyway, if a relegation happens, Leicester will next season play with a very different team, but still hopefully be competitive and with a set up that can push for promotion. If they stay up, the club will also turn every stone to try to bring the best ideas to the table.

James Maddison looks certain to leave with Newcastle and Spurs seen as the two front runners in the chase. James Justin, Timothy Castagne and Harvey Barnes are other players getting interest from other clubs, and all of them could be part of a financial package that will see the future of the club settled.

The current structure, financial plan and transfer policy cannot continue in the same way as in the past, without coming in conflict with financial fair play rules, and Leicester will of course come to terms with that as a new manager will be in line with those guidelines.

Brendan Rodgers made it clear that Leicester were above their limts and of course looking at the financial status at present everyone knows that that cannot continue and in that picture Leicester need to recruit new personel ready to commit themselves to another level of money use.

Football is not just about money and you have to be smart and clever in all areas to be able to compete. From history we do know that Leicester can compete at the highest level, but also seen a bit lower in the pyramid at times, as we also see with other clubs jumping up and down of divisions.

It will be interesting to follow the progress and hopefully current owners will be able to get it sorted out even with a different sporting structure and plan, hopefully again making the development of younger players top priority, instead of bying fringe for amounts and fees you cannot afford.

At present the mens first team, the womens first team and the development squad all struggles at the bottom of their leagues. Seeing the U.21’s relegated last week, after a struggling campaing in Premier League 2.
