Mahrez set to make long awaited Man City transfer

Riyad Mahrez

Pep Guardiola has been a long admirer of Mahrez, the former PFA Player of the Year, but failed in a late January bid, leaving the player unhappy.

City will pay Leicester an initial £60m for Algerian star Mahrez with a host of add-ons and extras.

Manchester City have also been linked with Napoli midfielder Jorginho with the Italy global reportedly left out of their pre-season training camp squad.

Riyad Mahrez will reportedly complete his drawn-out switch from Leicester City to Premier League champions Manchester City by the end of the week.

Leicester have allowed him extra time off since Mahrez - who has made 179 appearances for them, scoring 48 times - went off on global duty with his country last month.

The Spaniard is plotting a £65 million swoop for the winger after narrowly missing out on the Algerian global in the January transfer window.

According to Sky Sports, the 27-year-old Algerian will undergo a medical this week with all other aspects of the contract between the two clubs already agreed upon.

Manchester City have also been linked with Napoli midfielder Jorginho with the Italy worldwide reportedly left out of their pre-season training camp squad.

Do you think Mahrez will become a regular under Guardiola?

Yet Mahrez is not the only player due to have a medical at the Etihad Stadium.
