With Leicester now favourites for the league, it makes you wonder what will happen if they do in fact win the league. Given champions league football is now almost a definite, Leicester will come into some serious money. The question is, what to do with it?
It seems the first thing on Ranieri’s shopping list is a striker, in this case Ahmed Musa. The CSKA Moscow striker was touted as a Manchester United target not too long ago, but given the clubs respective positions, Musa would be forgiven for choosing the midlands.
Standing at 5’6 the Nigerian forward has drawn comparison’s to Arjen Robben, and is currently rated at £23 million. A sum that just a year ago would have been out of Ranieri’s reach, but now well within it. Known for scoring twice against Argentina in the 2014 World Cup Musa is a speedy player known for his assists as well as his finishing. If Leicester fans are excited just look below:
Still, this outlay would be a club record and with Jamie Vardy, Shinji Okazaki, and Leonardo Ulloa on the books, there could be questions on where he would fit in. Well the truth is he is very versatile, he can play wide as well as up front, and having a £23 million player as an option is something that shows how far the Foxes have come under Ranieri.
More signings like this and Leicester may be in the upper echelons to stay.
