Occasionally we find something in the world sport media which prompts raised eyebrows and quizzical looks.
That’s the case today with a story from Mexico on Leonardo Ulloa.
The striker left Leicester City last summer on a permanent transfer to Pachuca.
At the time, the Foxes made that very clear: ‘Leicester City Football Club can confirm that striker Leonardo Ulloa has joined Mexican side Pachuca on a permanent contract.’
Ulloa has done well, scoring 14 goals in 32 appearances since making the move to Liga MX.
Independiente de Hidalgo, local to Pachuca, report the club could be signing Leonardo Ramos from Lobos. He’s a striker, and it’s explained the signing would ‘increase the rumours’ around Ulloa leaving.
That all makes sense, but they then add: ‘…who would return to Leicester City of the Premier League of England.’
Either the footballer, who turns 33 years of age next month, is set for what would be a hugely surprising return, or there’s something very wrong with the claims.
