PSG Mercato: Announced as Di Maria‘s successor, Riyad Mahrez would be targeted by Paris SG. Manchester City would be ready to make a move in this direction.
PSG Mercato: Manchester City has made its decision for Riyad Mahrez
Landing in July 2018 from Leicester City against a package of 67.8 million euros, Riyad Mahrez may be playing these last months under the colors of Manchester City. With the likely arrival of Borussia Dortmund‘s Norwegian striker, Erling Haaland, the Citizens’ leaders could push the 31-year-old Algerian international towards the exit during the next summer mercato.
“If someone in the forward line were to move on, I’m told Mahrez is the one he might be most willing to leave,” explained English journalist Dean Jones in an interview with Give me Sport, convinced that Pep Guardiola might be forced to sacrifice Riyad Mahrez this summer, rather than Gabriel Jesus, who has also been announced as leaving. Paris Saint-Germain could have a good opening in this case in the coming weeks. However, the club of the capital will have to expect a real competition for Riyad Mahrez.
PSG Mercato : AC Milan want to challenge Qatar for Riyad Mahrez
The media Sport Mediaset confirms the probable departure of Riyad Mahrez and assures that an offer of 40 million euros could be enough to convince the board of Manchester City to sell the former teammate of N’Golo Kante this summer. But Paris Saint-Germain will have to battle with AC Milan in this case. Indeed, according to information from La Gazzetta dello Sport, the Lombard club, which could soon change ownership, would like to make the native of Sarcelles the new head of its new project. And the amount claimed by the Skyblues for their number 26 would not be a serious problem for the powerful investment fund Investcorp, future buyer of the Rossoneri. It now remains to be seen who will win the bid in this case.
