£57million. That’s how much it cost to assemble Leicester City’s squad of Premier League champions. Loose change in the world of football.
The three main stars of the Foxes title-winning season, N’Golo Kante, Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez, cost a ‘measly’ £6.8million between them. Incredible value for money for a PFA winner, a FWA winner and a midfielder who is now wanted by a whole host of top European clubs.
With the summer transfer window fast approaching, how much will it cost football’s ‘vultures’ to prize away Leicester’s heroes, now?
Kasper Schmeichel – £3.75million
Peter Schmeichel’s sperm is pricey! If you want to sign Kasper Schmeichel it will cost you just shy of £4million. Which, when you consider the 16 clean sheets and counting this season, and the fact that, at 29, the Dane is entering the peak years for a ‘keeper, is great value for money.

Under £5million for a man with three Premier League winners medals? Bargain.

About £2.25million overpriced. How the full-back could’ve cost Leicester long-term following his sending off against Arsenal (luckily for the Foxes, the Gunners are a weak-minded bunch).

Marc Albrighton – £3million
Aston Villa reject to Premier League winner. Mental.

The former Manchester United midfielder epitomises everything about this Foxes side: the whole is greater than the sum of its parts.

Exhibit 10384828247 why Jamie Vardy is an absolute renegade just like us!
You’d imagine it would take a lot more than £9million to get the former Fleetwood Town striker!

The unsung hero of this Foxes squad, who allows Mahrez and Vardy to do what they do best in the final third. Every team needs a selfless individual.
