Leicester City's coach Claudio Ranieri wanted to speak about the future of his player Riyad Mahrez.
We are actually getting used to it, this summer's transfer window is full of surprises. But isn't that the reason why we love it so much? Talking about surprises, Riyadh Mahrez's file is definitely comparable to the best drama series. For several days, Leicester player's departure was announced and then denied by the different parties. Today, his coach Claudio Ranieri wanted to make everything clear. And the least we can say is that the Italian coach is categorical.
"I think everyone is happy here. It's over, the market is over" he blurted out last night after the Foxes' victory against Oxford United. But the former coach of the ASM didn't stop there, he talked about the case of his Algerian player "Yes, he wants to stay." That should calm down all the different clubs that wanted to sign the 25-year-old player, starting with Manchester City. The Skyblues were preparing a $43,9 million offer as it was announced yesterday by France Football.
Claudio Ranieri decided to get things straight and tell the world that he is not ready to lose last season's best player. A few days after the departure of their valuable player N'golo Kanté to Chelsea, will Leicester manage to be sufficiently strong to keep 2015/2016 Premier League's best player?
After watching the video below, you'll understand why Leicester wants to keep this player...
