Leicester's Riyad Mahrez: Joining Man City would have been 'a good move'

Mahrez was absent from training for 10 days last month after Leicester turned down a bid from runaway Premier League leaders Manchester City in the January transfer window.

The Premier League champions-elect already have a huge amount of talent in the wide attacking positions - Mahrez would have a hard time displacing Leroy Sane, Raheem Sterling or Bernardo Silva.

According to Corriere dello Sport, Mahrez is keen on forcing through a move to Roma this summer, but it is thought that the two clubs are yet to agree a deal for the 27-year-old.

The player who also refused to quash speculation surrounding his future, said he maintained a good relationship with the club.

"We will see in the summer if something comes but at the moment I'm a Leicester City player and I'm good here". Secondly, we're very far away from the transfer window.

There have been conflicting reports as to whether City will try again, with some stating Guardiola still has Mahrez in his plans and others claiming the City boss wasn't impressed by the player's behaviour after his move collapsed.

"I want to thank everybody for the kindness and support they have shown me in this incredible city, you will be always in my heart".

" Markus Anderson has helped throw the shower for Meghan and a small group of mostly her London friends", a source dished. The dress that she will marry Prince Harry in is said to have cost an eye-watering £400,000 according to new reports.

"But it is the past and it is behind me". It's behind me and if we start talking about this it's like coming back to this transfer window.

The 27-year-old's contract with Leicester runs until 2020 and despite his obvious desire to part ways with the Premier League club the Foxes have already proved that they are unwilling to budge on their valuation of the Algerian worldwide.

"To be honest the club handled it very good as well".

"It was hard but I spoke with the players, I spoke with the manager, I spoke with everyone".

On Saturday, Mahrez scored a superb free-kick deep into stoppage time to earn Leicester a 1-1 home draw with Bournemouth.

"We always talk between me and the club". We've moved on now. They know me very well.

Mahrez has also been linked with Chelsea and Arsenal.
