Wenger questions Mahrez actions after failed Man City move

Wenger questions Mahrez actions after failed Man City move

The 26-year-old emerged as a top target for the Premier League leaders in the final days of the January transfer window, prompting the player to issue a transfer request in an attempt to force the move through.

Since then, Mahrez has failed to attend training and was not involved in either of their last two games while he is not expected to feature in the trip to the Etihad Stadium on Saturday.

Per McDonnell, Guardiola has "major concerns" about Mahrez's reaction to missing out on a move to City and will scrap his interest as a result. It is important that he gets back to playing even to be well in the national team. City wanted to pay £65 million for Mahrez, but Leicester wanted at least £95m.

The use of the word "depressed" has placed Leicester in a hard position, as they are reluctant to be seen as taking a hard-line stance on Mahrez's behaviour if it is proved he has a genuine illness. But they don't want to sell him at the moment and he's got to accept that and honour his contract.

City were willing to negotiate a £65m package for Mahrez that included a player heading in the opposite direction.

Per Sky Sports News, the associate said: "He doesn't understand why Leicester have behaved in the way they have".

On Thursday the Times have dug into how Mahrez could end his exile from the King Power Stadium.

Claude Puel has pleaded with Riyad Mahrez to come back to Leicester but failed to say when that might be.

'Riyad is a magnificent player, he loves football, he loves his relationship with his friends, his teammates, he enjoys his football. "It's for him, his agent and the club to deal with, but we would welcome him back".
