[Fifacoins.com] - Mahrez to Manchest City
Manchester City has strengthened with Riyad Mahrez on Tuesday. The Algerian winger comes from Leicester City and signs a contract for five years with the English champion.
Manchester City and Leicester City do not announce the transfer amount, but the 'Foxes' reportedly receive around 75 million euros for Mahrez.
At the end of January, City wanted to attract the 27-year-old Mahrez, but in spite of a transfer request from the midfielder, Leicester refused to work on a transition at the time.
Mahrez is the first big purchase of Manchester City this summer. In the winter break, the 'Citizens' did record PEC Zwolle defender Philippe Sandler for 4.5 years. He finished the season on a rental basis in Zwolle and made the switch to England this summer.
"I am so glad that I can play for City, a team that plays great football under Josep Guardiola", says the Algerian on the website of his new employer. "It's a pleasure to see them play." Pep "plays attacking football and that's the perfect game for me."
Mahrez came out for Leicester City since the beginning of 2014. With seventeen goals, he played an important part in the surprising national title of his team in 2016.
He played a total of 158 league matches for Leicester and scored 42 times. Before his time in England he was active in France for Le Havre and Quimper.
Mahrez also came to 39 international matches for Algeria and was eight times accurate for his country.
