Riyad Mahrez unconcerned by Manchester City competition: 'I never thought about that'

Man City news: Riyad Mahrez confident of impressing after £60m move from Leicester | Daily Star

Riyad Mahrez has backed England's Harry Maguire to one day play for a top club, saying it would give the Leicester City defender the recognition that he "deserves".

Manchester United are ready to trump Tottenham by launching a £50m bid to sign Leicester City centre-back Harry Maguire this summer, according to the Daily Mail via the Metro.

"The whole of Algeria is very excited at his move and you will see Algerian flags at the Etihad Stadium next season, without a doubt with many people in his country supporting him".

Mahrez, though, said he did not wish to discuss the frustrations of the January transfer window and rather set his sights on what he can achieve at Manchester City.

Mahrez believes an England that featured three of his new teammates were quite unlucky to exit the World Cup yesterday after being eliminated by Croatia.

Riyad Mahrez has revealed winning the Champions League was one of his chief reasons for joining Manchester City.


"In France, too, I think people have been waiting to see how he does at a big club and I think they will see a different player this year".

Leicester are unlikely to allow their star performer to leave easily as they seek to build towards European football again, having finished ninth in the league last term, and already spending big to sign James Maddison and Ricardo Pereira from Norwich and Porto respectively.

"After what they've done it's incredible", Mahrez, 27, told a news conference. "To be the record (signing), I don't think so much about this. Now we have to work and see what can happen". "It's a good thing". I thought what City did past year was incredible, it was unbelievable to break all those Premier League records, but I am confident about myself.

After their title success, City are now striving to win the Champions League and that ambition was of huge appeal to Mahrez. It is a goal.

"I think City will prioritise the Premier League this season, but also look to do really well in the Champions League as well, especially after the disappointment of losing to Liverpool". "I want to help this team improve and I believe that is what the manager wants".
