Leicester Blocked From Joining Roma And Barca - Monchi

Leicester City were responsible for blocking a potential Riyad Mahrez move to either AS Roma or Barcelona, according to Roma official Monchi.
AS Roma director of football Monchi has explained to Gazzetta dello Sport: “We wanted a left-footed winger to replace Mohamed Salah and put it all on Mahrez, but the only reason he didn’t come was because the club wouldn’t sell.

“It’s not an excuse, they said no to Barcelona too. Once Mahrez was off the table, we looked around and decided it was better to go for Patrik Schick, who was not the ideal profile for that role, but would be an investment for the club.

“It would’ve been a mistake in my view to give up on Schick just for tactical reasons.”
