Manchester City are set to land their long-term target Riyad Mahrez from fellow Premier League side Leicester City for £60m.

Leicester will receive around £60m for the Algeria global - some way short of their £80m asking price in January.

The 27-year-old Algerian global - whose performances in Leicester's astonishing title win in 2016 earned him the players player of the year award - is according to Sky Sports News due to undergo a medical at City later this week. The midfielder went on to submit a transfer request in a bid to force through a move, but that only earned him temporary banishment from the team.

Mahrez netted 13 goals in 41 appearances for the Foxes last season.

Manchester City have also been linked with Napoli midfielder Jorginho with the Italy global reportedly left out of their pre-season training camp squad.

The move would be the latest in the escalating trade skirmish between the world's two biggest economies. China has vowed to retaliate dollar-for-dollar to any further US tariffs.


Leicester will receive around £60m for the winger.

Yet Mahrez is not the only player due to have a medical at the Etihad Stadium. If Leicester does sell Mahrez for the reported 65 million, they will make a huge profit on his 500.000 transfer from Le Havre back in 2014.

The Citizens are thought to be paying £60 m for the 27-year-old.

However, Sky Sports believe the winger will not need to return to Leicester as he will be a City player in the coming days, and will become the seventh African star to play for Guardiola once the deal is completed.
