Ahmed Musa could lose as much as £24k weekly if Leicester are relegated
Ahmed Musa, Wilfred Ndidi and a number of Leicester stars are facing dramatic pay cuts of up to 40 per cent if they are relegated this season.
According to the Times, the Premier League champions acted to mitigate the costs of relegation after winning the title last season by inserting wage-reduction clauses into the contracts of those players awarded lucrative deals last summer, as well as those of the new arrivals to the club during the close season.
Ahmed Musa who signed on in the summer is wages of around £60k-a-week and could lose a mammoth £24k weekly if the Foxes go down. Similarly compatriot Ndidi would experience the same spark slash as well having to play in the Championship.
Some of Leicester’s big name players who signed extensions following their title winning exploits would also be affected by these cuts, Jamie Vardy, Riyad Mahrez, Danny Drinkwater, Kasper Schmeichel, Wes Morgan and Danny Simpson — were given new contracts last summer, as was manager Claudio Ranieri.
