Leicester vice-chairman Aiyawatt Srivaddhanaprabha has told Sky Sports News HQ that the club are under no pressure to sell any of their star players.
The Foxes were crowned champions for the first time in their 132-year history on Monday night after nearest challengers Tottenham were held to a 2-2 draw at Chelsea.
Their unlikely success has led to a number of their key players, including Riyad Mahrez and N'Golo Kante, being linked with summer moves away from the club.
But Srivaddhanaprabha hopes the lure of playing Champions League football as the English champions next season will be enough to convince the players not to leave the King Power Stadium.
Mahrez 'only 50-50 to stay'
Riyad Mahrez is "50-50" to leave Premier League champions Leicester this summer, says his agent...
"I will try everything. We manage Leicester as a family and if they are not happy I cannot say anything. But I will try and why would they need to move out of the club?" he said.

"Champions League next season, every team they may want to go to in the Champions League, maybe not, maybe yes.
"Bigger club? I understand people want to go to that calibre. At least they play in Champions League next season and they are champion of the English Premier League. I think they should enjoy the moment with us and the way we play it is good for the players.
"They have learnt to play with each other - cover, attack, defence, everything is connected with them. So, I'll try my best and the club is not going to say that we are going to sell the players to survive or to get the money. I can say that is not in the plan."
