Who do you want Summer 2020

Recommended Posts

While I'd love this to happen, it's never happening. We're not going to chuck £80m on a player, whether in a lump sum or installments. Not yet anyway. Even if we were willing to do so, we'd have to smash our wage structure just to even be competitive with the likes of Man Utd and whoever else may be interested in him.

I know he won’t come here, but he may be available and it would be a huge statement of intent if we can get him here. If he is just going to cost 40-45m as the rumour has it, that is a bargain. He will become the best midfield player we will have and he tends to operate on the left so he can help solve our problem on the left, freeing Barnes to go central and develop his game behind Vardy. Even in a bad Villa outfit, Grealish stood out - if he has better players around him he will be awesome. I have been watching him for years - he is a gem. He is also very loyal - despite clearly being eligible to play in the PL, he stood by Villa while they spent 3 years in the championship (can you imagine our first team doing that except for Vardy and Kasper?).

Classic FT lol

Why make a new thread then?

Giroud would be a great focal point / offer something different. Someone in his mould at least would be nice to play cup games / give vardy some competition.

Big city boy is Giroud so Leicester might not be his scene, even though he is an excellent all round player and has a couple of seasons still in him. I still think Mitrovic is the man for us , people criticise his bad attitude but I think we need some of that , Jamie excepted we have too many nice guys.

I was calling for us to sign Giroud in January then he signed 1 year extension with Arsenal, think he'd be dynamite with vardy and would probably have kept us in CL spot

Sell Nacho, get Mitrovic and Edouard, everyone’s happy, probably even Nacho :thumbup:.

Additionally we had a 30m bid turned down for tarkowski post maguire amongst others and would have spent similar on demiral in Jan if they'd accepted so weve not just banked the maguire money.

 

Also the club gained an extra 7m from maguire get cl and didnt pay out on the champions league bonuses to the players so swings and roundabouts.

I know this is a million dollar question, but in your opinion how much do you think is in the kitty for the summer before any sales. Like I say I know it would be a complete guess just intrigued.

No idea - some reliable people on here have said not a lot, I've heard that they'll be a bit more than usual. We'll see i guess.

Seems to be completely mixed messages everywhere I’ve read. Some say spend bigger than usual, some say hardly anything.

Wonder if we are just keeping our powder dry, so we will spend if good targets become available whilst not “showing our hand” too soon :dunno:

I personally think we need 1 big name signing who would accept a cut in wages to prove our ambition. 

 

Bale, James Rodriguez, and Coutinho

We could also hunt for players on Barcelona and Madrid's bench, like Arthur.

I would like to think this is the case. I think in terms of investment, this year is probably one of the most important in the clubs history.

Not a chance of any of them.... completely lower your expectations, because otherwise your going to be bitterly disappointed this window.

I mean did any of you guys expect Cambiasso to come to Leicester?

The same Cambiasso who only had a few years left & bitterly wanted to play in the premier league? Admittedly no of course I didn’t. However, the players you’ve stated are all in the prime of their career you simply can’t compare.

But we're also in a better state now. 5th place, talented squad, golden boot winner, Europa League, and more revenue. I'm not specifically asking for those players, but rather comparable ones
