Man City Sign African Star For £60m

Manchester City have confirmed the signing of Riyad Mahrez from Leicester City, the 27-year-old costing a club record £60m that could rise to £75m with add-ons.

Algerian global Riyad Mahrez has secured his move to Manchester City.

City were scuppered in their efforts to sign Mahrez during the last January transfer window but have finally now landed their man on a five-year contract.

His body was later shifted to Bilour House where ANP workers gathered in great numbers to pay respect to their deceased leader. At least six people, wounded during the blast, were said to be in critical condition at Peshawar's Lady Reading Hospital.


"City's performances last season were outstanding. They're redefining the English game and I wanted to be a part of it", Mahrez said on his new club's website.

Premier League champions City have paid in excess of 60 million euros for Mahrez, who joined Leicester in 2013. Have your say in the comment section below.

It's a big move for both Mahrez and Leicester City, adding a proven Premier League attacking star that will add to the squad's depth, while bringing in more funds for Leicester City to spend on improving its roster.

As the monsoon rains begin, water is being pumped out of the caves and a plan is being developed to bring them to safety. Fox News reported that rescue operators believed the first phase of the operation would take about 12 hours.


"Riyad is a hugely talented player".

Mahrez joined the Foxes in January 2014 for just £400,000 from French Ligue 2 side Le Havre. He beats defenders and creates space.

The announcement comes after City had seen a cash-plus-player offer of £65m rejected seven months ago, when Leicester were only willing to listen to offers of £80m to let him go in the middle of the season. His moments of magic will live long in the memory as the Club and its fans continue to build a long-term legacy for the success delivered by the teams to which Riyad so memorably contributed.

The England under-21 global is now reportedly heading to the King Power Stadium, and while it will be a separate deal to Mahrez, it is expected to smooth the Algerian's protracted move to the Etihad Stadium.
