Published: Updated:

Riyad Mahrez may already have played his final game for Leicester City, if a report is to be believed, as he prepares to move to the blue side of Manchester to become the first major transfer this summer.

According to the BBC report, the club is looking to shell out a combined whopping fee of $179 million for the playmaker.

During the winter transfer window, the blue side of Manchester pulled out from a potential deal to sign the Algerian Mahrez due to the off putting price put forth by Leicester City, this resulted in Mahrez handing in a transfer request.

Mahrez joined the foxes from French club La Havre in 2014 and has found the net 48 times in 179 appearances. He also nabbed the PFA player of the year award in 2016 as Leicester defied the 5000:1 odds and lifted the Premier League trophy.
