Riyad Mahrez has long been linked with an exit from Leicester City right back to the club's title winning season, but news broke yesterday, a day before Deadline Day, that the Algerian star was subject of late bids from champions-elect Manchester City. With Pep Guardiola's side missing out on Alexis Sanchez to Manchester United, could Mahrez make a sensational late move to the blue half of the city? What Are The Odds looks at the Riyad Mahrez next club odds.
In what broke as a shocking bit of transfer news yesterday, Manchester City made advances to sign Riyad Mahrez in the last 24 hours of this transfer window - leaving Leicester fans worried today as to what will happen with their undoubted star man this season. A few hours ago it was widely reported that Mahrez has officially handed in his transfer request to the Foxes in order to force the move through but the big sticking point could be the transfer price - with manager Claude Puel stating he would value him at £100m and above.
The reports suggest City have made a bid in the region of £50m for Mahrez, but it’s a figure that fall significantly short of the Foxes valuation.
Odds of 1/1 (2.00) makes Manchester City the absolute favourite, they appear to be the only club in for Mahrez today so if this doesn’t happen between the two clubs today, Leicester fans can expect to see him back in the first team pretty soon.
Before the start of this season Mahrez had told the club he wanted to leave to join Roma who ultimately failed to match the club’s asking price, with clubs like Barcelona and Arsenal previously linked. So could City pull off the biggest deal of Deadline Day? These Riyad Mahrez next club odds are likely to drastically shorten or go the other way throughout the day depending on the noises coming out of both clubs.
