Announced in the sights of Paris Saint-Germain this summer, Riyad Mahrez finally chose to stay in England. And obviously, the Algerian international does not regret his choice at all.
Several English media echoed a potential interest from the French champion for Riyad Mahrez during the summer transfer window, but the French champion would not have made a concrete offer. Luis Campos and Christophe Galtier appreciate the profile of the Citizens winger and have reportedly considered an approach to compensate for the departure of Angel Di Maria before falling back on another target of the champions of England, namely Bernardo Silva. Other offensive players have also been announced in the viewfinder of PSG, like Marcus Rashford, Rafael Leao or Robert Lewandowski. With no more success…
Mahrez ready to finish at City!
Under contract until June 2025, the main interested party is more fulfilled than ever in the north of England despite XXL competition. The Algerian dreams of winning the Champions League and other important titles with City. “I definitely want to finish my career at City and play for as long as possible. I think I can still play for a long time. We will see what the future holds for us after football. I do not know. I’m still thinking. I love football so it will be difficult to get out of it”, he confided in an interview with the media of the English club.
Campos relaunches the Skriniar case
According to the Italian media, the champion of France has not given up the idea of recruiting Milan Skriniar and plans to return to the charge in this case. Luis Campos greatly appreciates his profile and Christophe Galtier was not difficult to convince. The Inter defender was also clearly tempted by an arrival in France last summer and could refuse to extend to keep control of his future. PSG would then have a good chance of luring him into their nets without paying any transfer compensation.
The perfect kick off at Home 💙 thank you for the warm welcome and support, the season is fully launched 💪🏼🔥 pic.twitter.com/3AQqBzWl4M
