Manchester City Make Bid For Mahrez But Leicester Not Interested

Manchester City have placed an offer £60 million for Leicester City winger Riyad Mahrez but Leicester refuse.

Pep Guardiola is yet to make an official offer for the Algerian but it is understood Leicester will definitely not accept a bid for the 26-year-old unless it is possibly over £90 million. Leicester’s owners feel as though his value is worth even more recently due to the high prices Van Dijk and Coutinho were bought for from Liverpool and Barcelona.

It is believed that Leicester’s valuation of Mahrez is so high that it is unlikely for the former PFA Player of the Year to be leaving the Foxes this transfer window.

With Sane injured for at least six weeks, Guardiola will want to add more depth to his attack at Manchester, after missing out on buying Alexis Sanchez who went to rivals Manchester United this transfer window.

Mahrez who has scored eight and assisted eight so far this season has been wanted by big clubs regularly such as Arsenal, Liverpool and Chelsea for the last two years since Leicester won the Premier League but Leicester have always refused.
