Official: Man City Sign African Star For £60m
Manchester City have completed their first signing for the 2018-2019 with the addition of an African star in a deal reportedly worth £60 million.
The Citizens have announced the signing of Algeria international Riyad Mahrez from Manchester City.
The Algeria international has signed a five-year contract with the Manchester outfit and will wear the number 26 jersey.
“I am so pleased to have joined City, a side playing great football under Pep Guardiola,” Mahrez told the club's official website.
“Watching them from afar has been a pleasure. Pep is committed to playing attacking football, which is a perfect for me, and City’s performances last season were outstanding. They’re redefining the English game and I wanted to be a part of it.
“I think we can be successful over the coming years and I believe my own game can develop under Pep’s management.”
