Guardiola won't rule out Mahrez swoop

Guardiola won't rule out Mahrez swoop

A "close friend" of the Algerian's spoke to Sky Sports News and gave the impression that there may be rocky roads ahead for Mahrez and Leicester after they denied him the chance to work with Pep Guardiola.

City held talks with Leicester over the possibility of signing the winger but chose to walk away with the Foxes unwilling to lower their demands.

The Premier League leaders are said to have had a 55 million pound bid turned down, as The Foxes want 90 million for Mahrez.

It is understood City have enquired about the availability of Mahrez, but the two clubs are now some way apart on their valuation of the player.

Regardless of whether he can land Mahrez, Guardiola insisted he has been satisfied with the business City have done in the transfer window.

The Royal Astronomical Society of New Zealand said there will be a second lunar eclipse in 2018, and it will also be total. I'm sure you've heard or said the phrase "once in a blue moon " when referring to something that doesn't happen very often.

Mahrez, 26, was keen on a move to the Etihad Stadium and handed in a transfer request to try to force through a move, ESPN FC has been told.

It is understood that the Foxes were only prepared to do business if City could put together a deal worth around £95 million. He feels very strongly that he has done everything in his powers for the club.

"They have let N'Golo Kante and Danny Drinkwater go". At Leicester City, however, we have much more of an idea as to what exactly is going to happen. He's given his all for Leicester this season so that he could leave in this window.

Sané is expected to be sidelined for up to seven weeks with the injury, likely ruling him out of City's forthcoming Champions League knock-out tie against Basel and the EFL Cup final with Arsenal at the end of next month. That seems a long way off right now.
