Riyad Mahrez ready to lead Champions League charge for Manchester City

That's why I made the decision to come here because I want to be part of that.

City had enquired about the 2016 PFA player of year in the closing days of the transfer window but refused to meet Leicester's asking price. Last season they lost in the quarter-final and I know they have the ambition to go further the next season.

Riyad Mahrez faced the press at the City Football Academy today after joining Manchester City from Leicester City for a club-record fee on Tuesday. We're going to start to work this week and then we will see.

Nevertheless, his performances have reportedly been enough to attract interest from Manchester United, and Mahrez, who was a club-mate of Maguire until he moved to Manchester City earlier this week , believes he would be able to shine at Old Trafford. The Champions League is for big clubs, they're a big club. City are a big club and have everything to try to win it.

Comparing City starlet Phil Foden to masterful World Cup finalist Luka Modric, Redknapp said: "I watch him and the way that he plays, with that technical ability he possesses maybe he can be the one that does that for us in a couple of years".

The reward of a starting berth in the three-man England defence comes after being an ever-present for the Foxes during their Premier League campaign, playing every minute of the season as Claude Puel's side finished ninth.

Mahrez, who was the 2016 PFA Player of the Year, nearly made the move in January but City refused to pay the Foxes' £95m asking price. Now I'm here now and I'm happy. I wanted to work under him. They deserve a lot of credit for what they have achieved because reaching the semi final is very, very hard.

Guardiola already has an impressive number of attacking choices to pick from with Sergio Aguero, Gabriel Jesus, Raheem Sterling and Leroy Sane firing City to 100 points with a record 106 goals last season.

What happened then is something Mahrez wants to put behind him.
