Riyad Mahrez joins Manchester City from Leicester

Riyad Mahrez's wife Rita posed for a sizzling selfie

Manchester City had a £60m bid for Mahrez accepted by Leicester.

They walked away from a potential deal for Mahrez in January because they were put off by Leicester's valuation.

Leicester City will face a real fight to keep hold of the no-nonsense defender following the competition and it remains to be seen whether one of the top clubs can entice him out of the King Power Stadium.

Here is the photograph - is it Riyad Mahrez?

Mahrez was given extra time off by the Foxes after playing in Algeria's worldwide games in June and had been set to return to pre-season training before confirmation of his move to City.

The deal looked to have fallen through after Mahrez went on AWOL and missed out of Leicester training for a week and 3 days, but he later returned to continue playing for the Foxes.

"Watching them from afar has been a pleasure".

Riyad's progress with Leicester City also saw him firmly establish himself as a key member of the Algerian national team, with whom he played in the 2014 FIFA World Cup Finals and both the 2015 and 2017 Africa Cup of Nations.

"I think we can be successful over the coming years and I believe my own game can develop under Pep's management".

Leicester have confirmed the deal is a club-record sale for one of the stars of their Premier League-winning campaign and subsequent journey to the Champions League quarter-finals.

"Riyad is a hugely talented player".

Two years later, he was named PFA Player of the Year after scoring 17 goals and setting up a further 10 as they won the Premier League title.
