Riyad Mahrez’s future at Manchester City is finally known. The Skyblues do not want to let the captain of the Fennecs go. This is what we can understand from the recent exit of Ferran Soriano, the sporting director of the English club.
If many rumors have circulated in recent weeks evoking a probable departure of the Algerian following the arrival of Haaland, this would not be the case. Riyad Mahrez would be one of the players on whom Citizens officials are counting. “Riyadh is one of the hottest football players in the world and he has proven it time and time again. And not only on the field when he scores goals, but also in the application of the coach’s directives. This confirms the high professionalism of the player, and Manchester City are very happy to have Mahrez,” said Manchester City Chief Executive Ferran Soriano.
At the end of the season which has just closed its doors, the captain of Algeria has played 49 matches in all competitions with the English club. He scored 27 goals and provided 12 assists.
