City expected to re-enter race for £65 million superstar this summer

Manchester City will revive their interest in Leicester City star Riyad Mahrez this summer, according to reports from The Sun.

City made two unsuccessful bids for the Algeria international during the January transfer window, resulting in the 27-year-old refusing to train with his team-mates at the King Power in an attempt to force through a move.

He also missed a string of games earlier in the year as a consequence of his actions.


Since returning the Leicester side however, Mahrez has been in glistening form, and City boss Pep Guardiola is determined to land his man at the third time of asking.

The Spaniard is a huge admirer of the Algerian, who won the PFA Player of the Year award during Leicester City’s title winning season of 2015/16.

Despite having two-years left on his deal with the club, the Foxes will reportedly let Mahrez go for the right price, which in their eyes in believed to be around £85 million- however City’s valuation of the player comes in at around £65 million.

Mahrez has made 37 appearances for the Foxes and scored 11 goals so far this campaign
