The Leicester City supporting punters here in the Transfer Tavern were dealt a cruel blow at the weekend after key player N’Golo Kante departed for Chelsea in a £32 million move.
The French midfielder left the Foxes supporters crying into their pint pots after choosing to leave the King Power Stadium and the bad news might be about to get worse, according to our landlord’s copy of The Sun.
The paper are suggesting that reports in the Catalan-based paper Sport, claim that Riyad Mahrez could be about to secure his dream move to play for Barcelona in the wake of Kante’s departure.
The 25-year-0ld netted 17 goals in all competitions last season from a wide area and Barcelona could look to snatch the Algerian winger away from Leicester, who look to be in serious need of new recruits.
One Leicester City fan has a downbeat expression upon his face as he sips his pint at the bar here in the Tavern and he thinks that it could be a long season for the champions if new recruits are not signed to replace the departing players.
Leicester City fans, how would you feel about Mahrez leaving the club? Can he be replaced? Who should the club sign to replace him?
