Leicester will have to pay £9 million to secure Brendan Rodgers

Leicester will have to pay £9 million to secure Brendan Rodgers

Leicester City will be desperate to challenge for a European spot in the current campaign after adding a few players to their ranks during the summer. 

The Foxes have enjoyed a rather successful time of things so far this season, but there’re still a number of evident improvements that need to be made. Although, it appears as if the Midlands club received some shocking news recently, as according to Sun Sport, Celtic will demand £9 million compensation for Brendan Rodgers.

Brendan Rodgers comes with a stunning £9 million price tag — giving Leicester City a giant headache.

Interestingly, the Foxes aren’t the only club pursuing the Northern Irishman, as Newcastle United are also eyeing him as a potential replacement for Rafa Benitez.

Indeed, the size of compensation the Glasgow giants want is a huge obstacle to a move.

Claude Puel is under constant pressure to deliver positive results, so it appears as if the club chiefs are preparing for a potential managerial change.

THE VERDICT:

Brendan Rodgers has established himself as one of best managers in world football over the past few seasons, so it comes as no surprise that he is attracting interest from the Premier League.

Although, Claude Puel hasn’t done too badly during his time at the King Power Stadium, so there’s no need to force a managerial change at this moment in time.
