Why Chelsea Has More Luck Signing Players From Leicester City Than Manchester United

In the last few years, Former Premier League reigning Champion Leicester City has become a Feeder team to Manchester United and Chelsea. This is because both Chelsea and Manchester United have recruited Leicester City's top Players.

While Leicester City has generated hefty amount of money from selling their highly rated Players to Chelsea and Manchester United in the past, it seems Chelsea has been more Lucky than Manchester United with the Players that the West London club recruited from the Foxes.

At the end of Leicester City's Premier League winning season in the 2015/16 season, the Foxes sold French Midfielder N'Golo Kante to Chelsea. In the summer transfer window of 2019, Manchester United made England Defender Harry Maguire the most expensive Defender in the World after paying a round figure of £80million to sign the Englishman from Leicester City.

In 2020, Chelsea signed Ben Chilwell from Leicester City for £50million while Wesley Fofana joined the Blues from King Power Stadium last year for a fee of £68million. The French Defender is the latest Player that Chelsea signed From Leicester City.

During N'Golo Kante's first season at Chelsea, he helped the Blues to win the English Premier league title. In his second season, Chelsea won the FA Cup title. The following season, N'Golo Kante also helped Chelsea to win the Europa league under Maurizio Sarri.

Two seasons ago, N'Golo Kante was at the Centre of Chelsea's success in the UEFA Champions League under Thomas Tuchel and he even got the UEFA Midfielder of the season Award.

Ben Chilwell has lifted the UEFA Champions League trophy, UEFA Super Cup and the FIFA Club World Cup title at Chelsea.

Wesley Fofana joined Chelsea last summer but, the Frenchman has been impressive in the few games that he has played for the West London club after he made full recovery from his injury.

At Manchester United, the Red Devils have Harry Maguire who was once their Skipper before Erik Ten Hag took the Captain armband from him and gave it to Bruno Fernandes.

Despite been the most expensive Defender in the World, not only has Harry Maguire lost the Captaincy, he has lost his place in the starting lineup to Lisandro Martinez and Raphael Varane. He has been reportedly included on the list of Players that Manchester United could sell next summer.
