Man City offer player plus cash for Riyad Mahrez in £65million deal
Feb 01, 2018, 00:08
The Manchester-based club are reportedly only willing to pay Leicester around £60 million (R1.01 billion) for the former PFA Footballer of the Year and, with the transfer window closing on Wednesday night, there still is a lot of negotiating to be done if any deal is to happen.

If City manage to complete the signing of Mahrez it will take Guardiola's spending past the half a billion pound mark in just 18 months in charge and it is hard to shake the feeling that those players signed for such hefty fees will simply block young players' paths from the academy to the first-team.
