City to reignite their interest in Mahrez

Manchester City are set to reignite their interest in Riyad Mahrez in the summer after failing with a January move for the winger.

The newly crowned champions attempted to sign the Algerian with days to go in just in the January transfer window, but were forced to withdraw their interest on transfer deadline day after Leicester reportedly demanded close to £90 million.

The breakdown in that deal saw Mahrez effectively go on strike for a few weeks, such was his anger and disappointment at the situation.

He also tried to force a move last summer, submitting a transfer request amid transfer speculation linking him with the likes of Arsenal and Chelsea.

However, according to The Sun, Pep Guardiola is set to revive his interest in the winger in the summer as he looks to strengthen his already amazing squad of players.

The report claims that Guardiola will make a £65 million bid for the 27-year-old, who has two years remaining on his current deal at the King Power.

Despite his frustrations, he has scored 11 goals in his 37 appearances for the Foxes so far this campaign.
