Real Madrid and Man City to battle for Mahrez

Manchester City will return for Riyad Mahrez in the summer after failing to land him in January, according to ESPN, whilst Real Madrid are also registering an interest in the Algerian according to Don Balon.

Pep Guardiola reportedly made four bids for the Algerian winger in the winter transfer window, but failed to land him on deadline day. And now Zinedine Zidane wants to place a £50million bid as well with the two clubs set to go head to head.

This summer, the Premier League transfer window closes before the season starts so clubs have less time to complete their deals to buy and sell players.


Mahrez reportedly wants to be playing Champions League football next season and be competing to win trophies and Man City & Real Madrid could be the perfect platform for him to do so.

With 11 goals and 11 assists this season in all competitions for Leicester, the Foxes will have to prepare themselves for more bids for the right midfielder.

The last two transfer windows have seen Mahrez try to leave the King Power Stadium but fail to secure a move away from the 2015/16 champions. He has been linked with the likes of Arsenal and Roma in the past couple of seasons.
