Riyad Mahrez releases statement regarding future at Leicester City

Man City 'write to referees' body following series of bad tackles on players'

Meanwhile, City reportedly face competition from crosstown rivals Manchester United in the race to sign Harry Maguire from Leicester City.

The 24-year-old joined Leicester from Hull last summer in a £17m deal and has gone on to establish himself as one of the best young defenders in the top flight.

Mahrez will again be left out of the Leicester squad headed to the Etihad Stadium but Puel hopes the playmaker can put aside his qualms with the club and return to the field of play next week. "It's a decision for the player and the club, not Manchester City". The coach does not find a way to solve the conflict between the player and the club and ends up losing his most important player in the squad, which resulted in his team's defeat in both games.

"Off the back of that many people and journalists have made assumptions without properly checking the story, so I would like to clarify that all those so-called assumptions of why I was absent are completely untrue".

It means Mahrez will miss a third Premier League game.

"Myself nor my advisors have ever made any statements about that so all presumptions made are totally without foundation".

"My goals have always been the same and I have always given my full 100 per cent when I play for the club, the fans and my team-mates".

"I don't want to give details about our relation".

Arsenal have held a long-standing interest in Mahrez, while City manager Pep Guardiola could yet return for the winger in the summer. He loves his teammates and that's important.

"I think Riyad [Mahrez] will be not available for Saturday's game at Manchester City", he told reporters, according to the Daily Mirror.

Mahrez, who was voted Professional Footballers' Association player of the year in 2016 when Leicester won the league, has scored eight goals this season and has seven assists.

On Mahrez, Guardiola added: "Hopefully he will come back soon to play football. He needs to come back and to play, to touch the ball".

Mahrez only returned to training on Friday for the first time since the window closed, but when asked if City felt responsible for Mahrez's absence, Guardiola said: I don't think so. He is a great player, the bad thing for me is he loves the football - it is not just a player playing football like work.
