Manchester City seal £60m deal with Leicester for Algeria’s Riyad Mahrez”

The Citizens have announced the signing of Algeria worldwide Riyad Mahrez from Manchester City.

Claude Puel, the Leicester manager, is preparing for Mahrez's exit and has left the winger at home while the squad trains in Évian-les-Bains.

Mahrez, who was a key player in Leicester's 2016 title-winning side, told Manchester City's official website: "I am so pleased to have joined City, a side playing great football under Pep Guardiola".

Here is the photograph - is it Riyad Mahrez?

Mahrez was the subject of a huge saga at the end of the January transfer window, with Manchester City trying desperately to sign the former PFA Player of the Year.

The 27-year-old winger joins the Premier League champions on a five-year deal after the two sides reached an agreement.

The deal looked to have fallen through after Mahrez went on AWOL and missed out of Leicester training for a week and 3 days, but he later returned to continue playing for the Foxes. Leicester said in a statement the deal was a "club-record fee". "Over the past few years, he has established himself as one of the Premier League's most exciting players. Pep is committed to playing attacking football, which is a flawless for me, and City's performances last season were outstanding", he said on the club's official website.

Interestingly, the Algerian was back in Leicester's good books as he netted four more goals for the Foxes, taking his total goals to 39 goals from 139 top flight games for the King Power dwellers.
