On July 10, 2018, Manchester City formalized the transfer of Riyad Mahrez. After a failed attempt during the winter transfer window, the Skyblues had managed to get their hands on the Algerian international in exchange for 67 million euros.
Two years later, the former Leicester player has integrated well into the team of Pep Guardiola, who does not miss an opportunity to say all the good he thinks of him.
It was still the case this Friday. “He is an incredible player. He’s a fantastic guy who can create something special with assists and goals. We are delighted to have him and I hope he can help us when he plays and when he does not play too. I hope I can help him to progress on this point.” Pep on Riyad Mahrez (29, 12 goals in 44 matches in all competitions this season).
