Mahrez To Join Man City Before Window Closes?

Former Premier League champions Leicester City were made to play their latest fixture bereft of star winger Riyad Mahrez.

A turbulent week for Leicester City took a turn for the worse on Saturday (Feb 3) when Swansea fought back to get a 1-1 draw in the Premier League at the King Power Stadium and move out of the relegation zone.

According to BBC Sport, Man City thought Leicester wanted £95 million plus Patrick Roberts in exchange for Mahrez.

Mahrez was subject to a cash-plus-player offer from the league-leaders, which equated to approximately £65m, though this fell short of Leicester's mammoth £95m valuation.

The Swans clearly have a tough task against a Leicester City side now sitting eighth in the Premier League table.

Mahrez did not report for training on Thursday and Friday, having seen a move to Manchester City fail to materialise at the end of the transfer window.

The former England worldwide went on the say that he believed Mahrez would definitely have started for City had the move gone through, especially considering their current injuries.

He has scored nine goals in 27 appearances this season, leading the Foxes into the top-half of the table.

Puel remains optimistic, saying Mahrez will return to the fold.

"Riyad is not available for this game", said Foxes boss Claude Puel. The manner in which Arsenal play would also help bring out the best in the winger. "With organisation and calm we achieved an important point".

After some time, he will come back with us.

Though Leicester will not want to know, the statistics are now damning - they have failed to win in the four games Mahrez has missed since the beginning of last season.

"Everybody knows we were trying but we can not afford, in this moment, this amount of what they are asking", said City boss Pep Guardiola after Wednesday's 3-0 win over West Bromwich Albion.
