PFA offer assistance to Leicester's Riyad Mahrez

Riyad Mahrez Leicester Fleetwood FA Cup

As has been since revealed, Leicester demanded a British record £95 million for Riyad Mahrez, but Manchester City only offered £65 million plus a player before pulling out of the deal late on Deadline Day.

Since the proposed move fell through, Mahrez has been making the headlines for missing training and angering his teammates, while he is yet to make a Premier League appearance since the end of the transfer saga.

"I have had some great times at Leicester City and there are some great memories, but I think the time was definitely right to move on", King told Swansea's official website.

Like Swansea, Leicester have also been transformed since Claude Puel took over and both teams are unbeaten in six games.

"The boys will welcome Riyad back and he's no doubt one of our best players, said Maguire".

City tried to sign Mahrez after Leroy Sane was ruled out for up to seven weeks because of injury.

"I hope he can clear his head and come back for us because he's a valuable player for us, crucial in our play".

Reintegrating Mahrez into the squad will be a challenge for Puel, with reports that Leicester players are unhappy with their team-mate for submitting a transfer request and trying to force a move to City.

"Riyad is a good player but he is a good man also".

Still, getting Mahrez through the door would be a challenge for the Gunners at this point, especially with City having already shown serious interest in the player. We need to respect this decision.

"After, we will see with Riyad when he can come back with us".

Thorgan said: "The Bundesliga is a good championship and for now, I want to stay here".

"We had to score another goal in the first half because it was a good period with quality for us, but Swansea defended very well".

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho, though, has effectively conceded the title to City, saying: "We have to try to finish second".
