DONE DEAL? Man City medical and contract signing for Mahrez

Noah Ferguson | 11 July, 2018, 00:48

A photograph has appeared on social media of a man who appears to be Riyad Mahrez leaving a private hospital in Manchester with a camera man and someone else in Manchester City training gear.

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

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

The Algeria global has signed a five-year contract with the Manchester outfit and will wear the number 26 jersey.

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.

"I am so pleased to have joined City, a side playing great football under Pep Guardiola", Mahrez told the club's official website. They're redefining the English game and I wanted to be a part of it.

Pep Guardiola is a long-term admirer of Mahrez, and will have been impressed with his dedication in the second half of the season at Leicester despite coming close to an exit in the January window.

The Algerian superstar has been desperate to seal a transfer from Leicester City to his dream club since the start of the 2017/18 Premier League campaign. "Over the past few years, he has established himself as one of the Premier League's most exciting players". He will be welcomed back to King Power Stadium as both an opposition player and a friend of the Club.
