OFF: Riyad Mahrez will not be joining Man City

Leicester City
Published on 31/01/2018
The widely reported deal to bring wantaway star Riyad Mahrez to Manchester City is off, according to multiple sources.

The Premier League leaders have ended their interest after the clubs could not agree on a fee.

Leicester City reportedly wanted a package (cash and swap player combined) amounting to £95m, a price Manchester City were not prepared to pay for the Algerian.

Where that leaves Mahrez now remains unclear. He has reportedly handed in a transfer request, and has apparently gone AWOL before Leicester's match against Everton tonight.
