Manchester City edging closer to deal for Leicester winger Riyad Mahrez

Riyad Mahrez is close to joining Manchester City
The cost of the deal will be around 60 million pounds, a little less than Leicester rejected from City in the final days of the January transfer window.
An African star is set to join Manchester City this week after his club reportedly agreed to sell him for a whopping R1 billion.
The price is way below the £80m price tag The Foxes had pinned on their star man in January, putting off City's interest.
The Algerian superstar has been desperate to complete a transfer from Leicester City to his dream club since the start of the 2017/18 Premier League campaign but his attempts were frustrated by the Foxes.
A number of Leicester players reported back for pre-season training on Monday but Mahrez and Algerian team-mate Islam Slimani are not due back until next week having played in an global friendly on June 7.
Signing James Maddison, 21, from Norwich City triggered Leicester's willingness to enter into talks with City with the likely fee for Mahrez funding their summer spending.
Leicester will receive around £60m for the winger.
Mahrez along with striker Jamie Vardy and French midfielder N'Golo Kante became unlikely household names during the title winning season as Italian manager Claudio Ranieri engineered one of the greatest sporting surprises of all time.
Claude Puel will still be on the search for a wide player to replace Mahrez and Patrick Roberts has been discussed as a £15m addition to the deal.
