Leonardo Ulloa is raging at Leicester City manager Claudio Ranieri.

The veteran striker claims that Ranieri said he’d sell him for the right offer if one arrived during the January transfer window.

The magic number? $5 million to $6.25 million, according to Ulloa. The striker claims better offers than that have crossed Ranieri’s desk, and has expanded on his earlier social media claims.

From Sky Sports:

“The manager has been telling me for the last three months and the last two weeks that if an offer of around £4-5m was arriving to the club, he will help me to leave.

“My understanding is that at this moment, there are offers around those figures or even bigger that are not being considered.”

Ranieri doesn’t want to sell Ulloa as he feels the Argentine is his only proper backup for Islam Slimani.
