Transfer: Riyad Mahrez courted by big teams?

The satisfactory season of Algerian winger, Riyad Mahrez, could end with a news that would give another dimension to the career of the captain of the Algerian team.

Decisive, altruistic and constant, these are the standards of the native of Sarcelles with his Mancunian club, Manchester City. If the page of the Algerian selection is less prolific this year, Mahrez is on a pedestal with City this season. Top scorer in Pep Guardiola’s team, Mahrez is definitely part of the Catalan technician’s game plan. But this stability could be disrupted by a decision that is slow in coming.

Indeed, the leaders of Cityzens are struggling to decide on the future of the Algerian winger. Riyad Mahrez’s contract will end in a year, which does not seem to scare the high places of the blue club Manchester. Showing no desire to secure contact with the Algerian player, the residents of the Etihad Stadium would find it hard to see a free departure from a player with a good rating on the transfer market.

According to information from the French magazine, Onze Mondial, a rush of European teams is growing to win the signing of the Algerian international. Onze Mondial ticks the names of Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid on the list of European clubs interested in the services of the captain of the greens. Information reported mainly by the French newspaper, l’Equipe. The fate of Riyad Mahrez could be linked to that of the French international, Kyllian Mbappé.

A game of musical chairs would take place if the Mbappé operation at Real Madrid takes place this summer. The Parisian club will be keen to replace their jewel in the event of departure, but if the Qatar-led club manages to maintain the 2018 world champion, the administration of Florentino Pérez would launch into the Algerian left-hander.

A transfer to take a course?

With Manchester City, Riyad Mahrez touches the clouds of European football. Massive investment, distant vision and hard work, the Cityzens have made a name for themselves on the chessboard of world football. An evolution of which the Algerian international can boast of having been among the main protagonists.

If the PSG project is largely similar to that of City, the interest of Madrid barley could take Mahrez a step further. A course that will be questioned during the next meeting on behalf of the semi-final of the Champions League which will, precisely, between the white club of the Spanish capital and the champions of England. The end of the Manchester City season promises to be lively, which would shape the future of several players in the Mancunian ranks, including Riyad Mahrez.
