Algerian Star Riyad Mahrez Completes £60million Move To Manchester City

Algerian winger Riyad Mahrez has finally completed his £60 million (R1.07 billion) club-record move to Manchester City from Leicester City, weeks before their Premier League title defence against Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium.

The 27-year-old has been eager to seek a move away from the Foxes and missed training on a couple of occasions in order to seal a move through to the Etihad outfit.

At the weekend, Leicester granted Mahrez leave of absence from their training camp in France in order to undergo his medical at Wilmslow, which was completed on Tuesday afternoon.

Mahrez revealed his excitement to work under Pep Guardiola after completing a club-record move to the Premier League champions.

The 2015/16 PFA Player of the Year could not contain his excitement upon his unveiling saying:

“Watching them from afar has been a pleasure,” Mahrez told the club’s website.

“Pep Guardiola is committed to playing attacking football, and City’s performances last season were outstanding.

“I think we can be successful over the coming years and I believe my own game can develop under Pep’s management.”

Since joining the Foxes over five seasons ago, Mahrez scored 48 goals and registered 38 assists in 179 games for the Foxes, while winning promotion to the English top-flight in his first season and leading them to a historic Premier League title.
