Man City ask about Riyad Mahrez

Leicester City receive €68m bid from Manchester City for Riyad Mahrez

"This is where it gets interesting though; it also includes a player going in the opposite direction".

"The transfer window [closes] on the 31st".

Despite hours of talks throughout Tuesday and Wednesday the two clubs have been unable to find common ground, and City have ended their interest. Right now we have just three strikers with Raheem [Sterling]. We don't have more for the next month and a half. Gabriel [Jesus] is coming maybe in the next five or six weeks.

City confirmed the signing Aymeric Laporte from Athletic Bilbao yesterday for a fee of £57 million, with Guardiola looking to enhance his squad which now sits top of the Premier League.

Apart from their valuations this window, Moura, 25, and Mahrez, 26, are very comparable.

"It's so happened with Laporte because it's a buy-out clause, when you have to negotiate it's always so complicated".

Deal off. Manchester City give up on trying to sign Riyad Mahrez from Leicester City.

"I've had it confirmed that Man City are walking away from Riyad Mahrez - the deal is off".

"Am I happy? Of course, a lot", Guardiola said.

Mahrez is a vital player at the King Power Stadium thanks to his skill and inventiveness in the final third and his eye for goal. I said many times when the player doesn't want to come it's ideal.

The Citizens plan to recruit the Algerian having lost Leroy Sane through injury, but the Foxes have so far been reluctant to sell.
