Manchester City closing in on Mahrez after deal with Leicester City

Share

Leicester City winger Riyad Mahrez is set to have medical with Manchester City this week.

The Premier League champions seemingly have more than enough attacking talent at Pep Guardiola's disposal, as evidenced by their staggering tally of 106 goals in 38 league games last season.

After the successes of last season, many had called the side the one of the greatest Premier League teams of all time, not least because of the insane points total they achieved at the end of the campaign.

The Algerian superstar has been desperate to complete a transfer from Leicester City to his dream club since the start of the 2017/18 Premier League campaign but his attempts were frustrated by the Foxes. He's the greatest thing to come out of Essex since Nick Frost.

With that in mind as City look to compete on multiple fronts again next season, adding the Leicester ace could perhaps make real sense for the defending champions to ensure that they remain at the top of the tree.

Previously, NAIJ.com reported that Manchester City coach Pep Guardiola has renewed his interest in signing Riyad Mahrez from Leicester City this summer.

Claude Puel will still be on the search for a wide player to replace Mahrez and Patrick Roberts has been discussed as a £15m addition to the deal.

Mahrez will cost and initial £60m from the Foxes, with add-ons that will take his overall price just short of Leicester's initial £80m asking price for the Algerian. Even Mahrez himself requested an official transfer request twice.

Apart from City, Liverpool were also eyeing the services of the Leicester City forward who scored 13 goals in 41 matches last season.
