Leicester City are in the process of trying to sign a former Real Madrid and Inter Milan star according to the Daily Mirror. They believe the Foxes have made an audacious £5m contract offer to Esteban Cambiasso to bolster their midfield.
Nigel Pearson’s promoted side would love to add the experience of the 33 year old Argentine who has 52 caps for his country. After 315 Serie A appearances for Inter Milan over 10 years he left the club this summer as his contract expired so would be an excellent addition on a free transfer.
Cambiasso can be played as a holding midfielder but also is able to be more forward thinking and creative, a role he took on for Argentina. During his time with Real Madrid he played 41 times in La Liga winning the title, intercontinental cup, UEFA Super Cup and Supercopa de España. He then moved to Italy and notched 5 Scudettos, 4 Coppa Italias, 4 Suppercoppa Italianas, 1 FIFA World Club Cup and the UEFA Champions League in 2010 under Jose Mourinho.
The two year contract offer will surely tempt Cambiasso to try his hand at the Premier League before thoughts of retirement and will be a coup as West Ham and Valencia have also been interested.
