Leicester City receive €68m bid from Manchester City for Riyad Mahrez

Premier League leaders Manchester City have lodged a €68m bid for the services of Algerian international winger Riyad Mahrez, according to France Football.

The former Le Havre man has a gentleman’s agreement with the owner of Leicester that enables the player to leave the club if a sizeable offer is made; this bid definitely qualifies as such.

Manchester City appear to be reacting to news that German winger Leroy Sané will be out injured for just under 2 months following an injury in the FA Cup fixture against Cardiff City last weekend in quite a heavy-handed fashion, it must be said.
