City fans give Mahrez Etihad welcome

Riyad Mahrez aiming to win Champions League with Manchester City

Riyad Mahrez’s first press conference: I didn’t hesitate to join Guardiola’s Man City

Maguire has been a stand out star at the World Cup after a fine season playing for the Foxes, and as arguably the only starting player from the England team who is likely to move this summer, a hefty price tag of £50-60m has been mentioned in the press. They broke all the Premier League records which is unbelievable, but no I never thought about this.

Mahrez, who was the 2016 PFA Player of the Year, nearly made the move in January but City refused to pay the Foxes' £95m asking price.

NAIJ.com previously reported that Premier League giants, Manchester United, have emerged as favourites to sign Leicester defender Harry Maguire.

"If I moved sooner, maybe I wouldn't have been happy".

Maguire, who started his career at Sheffield United and has worked his way up into the Premier League, was not only an eye-catching performer defensively, but he showed he was a real menace from set-pieces, and he scored a sublime headed goal against Sweden in England's 2-0 quarter-final win.

History has shown that Russian Federation has a penchant for attempting to control Europe by cutting off energy supplies. I think it's very bad for Germany.

Such was City's dominance last season that Mahrez thinks, by the second half of the campaign, they had mentally already beaten some teams before games even kicked off.

The deal to take him to the King Power Stadium, from then recently relegated Hull, cost just £17 million but he would now be worth almost triple that price. That's why I made the decision to come here because I want to be part of that.

He said: "They (City) offered and Leicester rejected the offers, but it's the past". Now I'm here and it's the most important. "I'm happy and we're looking forward". "They want to go further in Europe each season and I am here to try and help them".

"I've gone "no you don't do Richard Dunne for pace, he's the quickest thing you've ever seen in your life".

"I'll give my best to achieve for the club".
