Man City make final Riyad Mahrez offer in cash-plus-player deal

Posted February 01, 2018

The Algerian handed in a transfer request on Tuesday but that has not proven to be enough to push Leicester into selling one of their star men. The window is open until the 31st. We spoke many times with the club about what is the best for the players we have and the amount of players we have.

"Right now, we have just three strikers with Raheem [Sterling], for the next month or month and a half".

The report suggests that Guardiola feels that he may need to add more firepower to his squad, as he will be without the services of injured Gabriel Jesus and Leroy Sane for the next couple of weeks. "We have to find solutions".

"Riyad is very depressed this evening over the events of the last two days", Mahrez's friend is quoted as saying.

He did the same in the summer over a potential move to Serie A side Roma but the Foxes remained strong and kept him at the club.

"It's so happened with Laporte because it's a buy-out clause, when you have to negotiate it's always so complicated".

It looks like Mahrez is finally getting his move away from Leicester City.

"Right now I say the same thing as I said in the case of Alexis Sanchez and [Aymeric] Laporte that here is not the best place to talk about that".

However, unlike the previous offers, the 2015/16 Premier League champions are "considering" the deal on the table and are yet to provide a response. The move will most probably be made official today as the Foxes would not want to upset their players.
