Man City Sign African Star For £60m

Riyad Mahrez is set to join Manchester City in a £60m move, Vanguard has learnt.

While we can't verify for sure that it is Mahrez, it certainly looks to be and the presence of City staffers would seem to confirm it.

The Algeria global, one of Leicester's title-winning heroes from the 2015-16 season, handed in a transfer request in January and had a 10-day absence from the club before returning to training with them on February 9.

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.

Mahrez was the subject of a huge saga at the end of the January transfer window, with Manchester City trying desperately to sign the former PFA Player of the Year. "Pep is committed to playing attacking football, which is a ideal for me, and City's performances last season were outstanding", he said on the club's official website.

"His moments of magic will live long in the memory as the club and its fans continue to build a long-term legacy for the success delivered by the teams to which Riyad so memorably contributed".
