After the joy of the most utterly unexpected of Premier League title wins, the anxiety over the future of your best players.
That’s been the experience for Leicester fans this summer, with Jamie Vardy possibly on his way to Arsenal and playmaker-in-chief Riyad Mahrez linked with… well, here, there and everywhere.
But the Telegraph reports that the Foxes are doing everything they can to keep PFA Player of the Year Mahrez and have offered him a new contract worth £100,000 a week.
The Algeria international has been a reported target for Barcelona, Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain, amongst others.
Leicester hope the offer of a bumper new deal — and the allure of Champions League football next season — will be enough to keep him.
But if he does decide to leave, he won’t come cheap. The Foxes will be asking for more than £30 million for a man who cost them only £400,000 when he signed from French club Le Havre in early 2014.
Mahrez, unlike Vardy and sought-after midfielder N’Golo Kante, has no release clause in his King Power Stadium contract. He has said: “It is possible that I stay… it is possible that I leave.”
So it’s watch this space, then.
