With N’Golo Kante looking close to leaving the King Power stadium, Leicester title winning squad have been dealt another hammer blow as it emerges that Riyad Mahrez is to reject the offer of a new deal.
The Guardian claims that Mahrez is keen to ‘pursue a new challenge away from the Premier League champions’.
The current PFA Player of the Year has three-year left on his current deal, where earns around £35,000-a-week, and has already received an opportunity to sign improved terms, worth a potential £80,000-a-week. However the Algerian is set to reject the offer amid interest from a number of clubs around the Premier League and Europe, and instructed his representatives to find him a new club.
Manchester United, Chelsea and Arsenal are joined by European clubs Barcelona, Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid with having an interest in the winger, who moved to England back in 2014 from Le Havre.
In May, Claudio Ranieri rated Mahrez’s chances of staying at the club as 50/50.
