KANTE,DRINKY AND MAHREZ

Recommended Posts

Am i right in thinking the sale of just those 3 players alone has yielded a profit of near on 120 million quid which is insane tbh 

 

kante      in 5.6m     out 35m 

drinky     in  1m       out 30m 

mahrez   in 400k     out 60m 

 

cant think of to many clubs who have made such a profit from 3 players within a short period of time

Southampton are the only club off the top of my head that've managed similar albeit over more players and a more staggered period:

 

Shaw : 0 - £30 million 

Lallana : 0 - £26 million

Mane : £11.8 million - £34 million

Van Dijk : £13 million - £75 million

They weren't particularly ripped off for Drinkwater (nowhere near as much as we were with Kante anyway), they've just wasted him.

Yeah the Kante price was low but mainly down to things outside our control. Chelsea signing Drinkwater for £35m when they had Chalobah and RLC was a strange one.

This is correct, Kanté made Drinkwater look twice the player he wasn't

Kante was definitely part of a learning curve for the club. Shouldn't get caught with our pants down like that again, mind you we made some back on Drinky

TBF, Mendy never got a chance. Maybe he can thrive under Puel?

Leicester should of offered more weekly for Kante than Chelsea and kept him for one more season And gone for quality over quantity in signings that summer!

Yes, it definitely balanced out the Kante deal.

I just hope we have a sell on clause in the Mahrez deal as I'm sure he'll end up at Real or Barca one day.

125m 

 

Liverpool got more for an 8 stone Brazilian who isn’t fit to lace Mahrez boots !!! 

 

We are the worst traders on planet

Can't believe what they paid for him and they let Chalobah go for £5 million and loan out Loftus Cheek.

We were never in control of that situation. Kante never wanted to come here being a Chelsea fan. So we agreed to the get out clause to get him here.

 

The Mahrez situation is  completely different, he was on a 5 year contract and city wanted him. We should have and maybe we did insist on a sell on clause.

Monaco.

Bringing kids through the youth team, selling them for £170 million.

Comprehensively smashes our profit.

He's probably not all that or yesterday's man.

 

He really failed at Everton and probably dines out on his Leicester successes, you're only as good as your last fight so they say.

Drinkwater isn't a bad player at all and could have been a success had it not been for injuries and a lack of playing time. He's better than Iborra, James and Silva.
