Maguire to Man Utd / Man City

I think the first point is a myth. We have rich owners - in King Power - if they wanted to put in a cash injection to get around FPP they could give a crazy shirt deal or something. We are certainly one of the richest clubs in the Premier league, which is the richest league in the world. Getting a loan is simply good financial sense. The repayment deals on loans at the moment are incredible and only a fool or a monry launderer would pay for a building complex in cash.

 

Your second point is simply laughable. Puel introduced the football that Maguire thrives on. CB's that can pass and go forward. Ranieri and Pearson liked their CBs to be able to defend that's why we had Wes and Huth but Puel made Maguire into an England international.

No we can't. There are rules that restrict how much sponsorship deals can be and what is 'fair value' specifically to stop the use of loopholes like this.

I think it’s clear to see that he stepped up his game against Man City & Arsenal. Whether that’s got anything to do with building interest or just because he wanted us as a team I don’t know.

I think there is 100% chance he will be looking for a move in the summer. I thought he was putting himself in the shop window the other night v Man City to be honest. From our point of view would be nice to keep him, but I think we should let him move on if a Champions League outfit stump up. Man Utd would be a waste of his time.

Very true - although the amount KP sponsors the club for is pretty low ..... that particular sum could easily be higher without attracting query

Puel introduced it but then due to a fair few games where we started leaking goals maguire then stopped running forward.  So why you called it laughable I dont know.  I never said anything about puel not been good for maguire and I supported puel until the very end by the way, I wasnt one of those pushing him out.

 

Regarding the loan, unless its zero percent interest there is a cost to the club, we also dont know the terms of the loan, I get the point about borrowing money been a solid decision sometimes in business, but usually its done when either there is no cash in hand or no one is willing to inject the cash.  Vichai wanted the club debt free.  To suggest only a money launderer wouldnt borrow money to pay for something sounds ridiculous to me.

 

Given the timing of the loan it wouldnt surprise me if we had temporary cashflow issues due to the events earlier in the year and it gets repaid well ahead of its due date.

 

By your reckoning was funding the new stadium by loan ok as well?

 

I care about the survival of our club above everything else, winning the league is fine, competing for a european spot is fine as long as we dont go bankrupt in the process, that to me means either funding things out of club income, or directly from the owner's assets.  So e.g. I would have been fine if the loan was taken out by king power and not the club.  A 3rd party loan is often how the slippery path down starts for a club.

 

Also as has already been pointed out to you clubs have been done trying to get round FFP rules with sponsorship deals, and FFP doesnt prevent cash injections, it prevents excessive spending on players, the two are different things.

Leicester and England defender Harry Maguire could play his final game for the Foxes on Sunday. Tottenham, Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester United are all interested in the 26-year-old, but the Foxes will not sell him for less than £60m. (Sun)

This is where Spurs shock the world and bid £80million for Maguire and I sit on the floor laughing at my housemate.

Surely if it’s a four way battle and he has no real ease clause then shouldn’t there be a price war, not a £60M four way split?

£80million? Out of all the assets we have I think selling Maguire would have the least impact on hindering our progress next year.  We have more than adequate cover at centre half and I feel that whoever partners Evans develops their game. Even Wes looks comfortable playing alongside Evans. £80million plus any additional transfer funds goes along way to securing 3 or 4 top quality improvements to the squad. With  greater quality and ball retention, perhaps our defence will be called upon less frequently.

If Alderweireld goes, whats the likelihood Spurs come in for Maguire? I doubt they would stump up the £60 million tho on a centre half

Man U have  a policy of avoiding dealing with Spurs because of Levy’s business practices  . We should do the same .

And they wouldn’t buy Kane for 100 m if it was offered .....

 

btw, levy’s business practices are exactly that .. ‘business’ .......seems the others have all caught up rather than doing things on the back of a fag packet and so called  ‘gentleman’s agreements’ which were never agreed in the first place

His Price has certainly fluctuated over the last couple of weeks with reports saying £90m + to now reports of £60m, whatever the price I think we’ll be losing Harry this Summer to one of the so called big 4 clubs but if we do let’s hope the club gets as much as possible for the lad !

Imagine Jamie Vardy and Alexi Sanches strike partnership ??????

Sanchez is easily in the Top 5 of players I would never want in a team. Toxic. 

A player cannot suddenly become shocking 

 

I suspect he simply doesn’t ‘fit’ in their dressing room and the resentment re his salary is possibly responsible

Although I agree that Harry is probably the one I'd pick if we had to lose a first team player because like some have said, it's the one position we possibly have enough cover in, I'm still not as confident in what we have as alot of you seem to be. Evan's is solid, agreed. Benkovic looks class but he does seem to get injured rather regularly which is a concern. We've simply not saw enough of Soyuncu to say either way that he could handle being first choice for a whole season and Wes is Wes. He looks like a rock one week and then fills you with dread the next. 

 

I mean, with a combination of the three, we could probably get away with it but again, I'm not as confident that if this is the way we went that we wouldn't be looking for a CB come January.

Wasn't he the same towards the end of his time at Arsenal too though? Just doesn't seem a team player, a massive ego, and not the type of person we want. Not that it would realistically ever happen anyway!
