Leicester Agree Deal For Classic 'I've Just Won The League' FIFA 16 Signing

Leicester Agree Deal For Classic 'I've Just Won The League' FIFA 16 Signing
By John Balfe Updated

Leicester City's unlikely yet highly satisfying (unless you're a Spurs fan) transformation into one of Europe's top clubs has taken another step in the right direction today after the English champions secured the signing of a name very familiar to players of FIFA 16 and Football Manager - Ahmed Musa.

The 23-year-old Nigerian international will head to the King Power Stadium from CSKA Moscow for the rather hefty fee of £16.6 million (€19.8 million) and turned down Everton, West Ham and Southampton in the process.

Musa can play on the left wing and up front and has absolutely blistering pace, a rarified treat in the world of FIFA. He can lay claim to scoring 58 goals in his 168 games in the Russian capital and CSKA coach Leonid Slutsky has no doubt that his transfer to the Premier League will be seamless.

Speaking to Russian media, he said:

[Musa] will be leaving on Tuesday. And if you look at the way things are done over there you'll see he is a player just made for English football.

You know how it is. You've worked hard to win the Premier League with an unfashionable club. So you decide to treat yourself to a bit of pace up front. It used to be Seydou Doumbia in FIFA 15 but since he's turned out to be utterly crap in real-life, Musa's your only man.

This is set to be the second time in as many days that Leicester have broken their all-time transfer record, following the capture of Nampalys Mendy from Nice over the weekend to make up for the expected departure of the ultra-impressive N'Golo Kante.

There has been no additional word on the Robbie Brady to Leicester speculation, though he is said to be on holidays at the moment and we can expect to hear something one way or the other in the next couple of weeks.
