Man City Sign African Star For £60m

10 Июля 2018, 11:43 | Anna Jefferson

Riyad Mahrez is reportedly undergoing a medical at Manchester City ahead of a move from Leicester City.

The midfielder who has been unsettled at Leicester following failed moves last season is now undergoing medicals at City.

But the Premier League champions remained keen on Mahrez, who scored 13 goals in 41 appearances for Leicester last season.

The two clubs have agreed a fee of £60m for the 27-year-old and talks have now been completed between the two sides, with Mahrez due in the north west for a medical at the start of next week.

"Riyad is a hugely talented player".

"I am so pleased to have joined City, a side playing great football under Pep Guardiola", Mahrez said in a club statement.

"Watching them from afar has been a pleasure".

Mahrez joined Leicester from Le Havre in January 2014 and helped them to a first place finish in the Championship.

"I think we can be successful over the coming years and I believe my own game can develop under Pep's management".

The Algerian has not commenced pre-season training with the Foxes after being handed an extra vacation, and might not team up with his former team-mates at Leicester City again.

And Txiki Begiristain, City's director of football, says he is delighted to have finally captured one of the best players in the English top flight.

Mahrez's experience of winning the Premier League will certainly have left him hungry for more success, and he now has the chance to achieve that once more under the stewardship of Pep Guardiola. He will be welcomed back to King Power Stadium as both an opposition player and a friend of the Club.
