Riyad Mahrez move to Manchester City is OFF, according to reports

Manchester City failed in an audacious transfer deadline day move for Leicester City midfielder Riyadh Mahrez, according to reports.

Mahrez, who submitted his first Leicester transfer request last May, would be able to provide cover for Sané.

City have reportedly made a £55 million offer for the Algerian global, who has already handed in his transfer request to the 2016 Premier League champions.

With the deadline fast approaching, Manchester City is likely the only club remaining with pockets deep enough to match Leicester's asking price of 80 million euros.

Only a dramatic U-turn would see the deal go through now, although that would require either City to pay well above their valuation, or Leicester to sell for well below theirs. He then helped them make history in winning the Premier League title and he has done what the chairman has asked of him, which is to stay at the King Power and secure the club's Premier League safety.

Apple says its HomePod is equipped with spatial awareness which means it will fill a room with sound no matter where it's placed. The HomePod does not yet support multi-room audio or stereo pairing but these features are coming in a future software update.


Leicester City fans and players have every right to be unhappy with Mahrez but they also need to accept that he does deserve to play for a bigger club.

"They have let N'Golo Kante and Danny Drinkwater go".

The Foxes are rightly trying to milk big-spending City for as much as they can for the Algerian worldwide winger who has nine goals and assists a piece this season.

"He's given his all for Leicester. Joining City would have been a dream". Playing for Pep Guardiola is something he is still desperate to do.
