Riyad Mahrez set to complete Man City switch

Leicester City attacker Riyad Mahrez is slated to have a Manchester City medical this week. The basic price of the Algeria worldwide is expected to start at £60m and with add-ons may raise to £75m.

Leeds United boss Marcelo Bielsa has reportedly been offered Manchester City's Brahim Diaz.

It looks as though one of the key players in Leicester's legendary Premier League triumph in the 2015/16 season will be moving on in the very near future with a move to Premier League champs Manchester City on the cards.

Mahrez has not returned to training with Leicester after being granted extra leave, along with worldwide team-mate Islam Slimani, due to Algeria's schedule later this summer.

A return of 13 goals in 41 appearances last season shows he has still been key to the Foxes however he has had his head turned by Man City and is now joining Pep Guardiola's side.

Leicester have successfully fended off interest in their star winger over four transfer windows and demanded £80m from City in January. If Leicester does sell Mahrez for the reported 65 million, they will make a huge profit on his 500.000 transfer from Le Havre back in 2014.

Do you think Mahrez will become a regular under Guardiola?

Mahrez scored 17 goals in that campaign, and then having signed a four year contract played a major role in the club reaching the Champions League quarter finals in 2016/17 as he contributed four goals.
