Leicester boss Claudio Ranieri has warned Riyad Mahrez and N’Golo Kante about the pressure of playing for Spain’s biggest clubs.
Mahrez and Kante have played an integral role in Leicester’s unlikely title bid this season and the pair are likely to be in demand in the summer. The former is reportedly on Barcelona’s radar, while the latter has been linked with Real Madrid.
Ranieri, who has managed in Spain, says the pair are “kings” at Leicester and would have to deal with a different kind of pressure if they sought pastures new.
When asked if Mahrez and Kante would be ready for moves to Spain’s big two clubs, Ranieri told Marca: “It must be seen. Here, at Leicester, they are kings.
“Everything goes well and they are all happy, but when you go to a big club the pressure is enormous and you have to give everything.”
