Mahrez sets Leicester fresh ultimatum after ‘broken £50m promise’

Date published: Friday 9th February 2018 9:47

Riyad Mahrez believes that Leicester City broke a promise over his failed transfer to Manchester City, a report claims.

The Algerian international was the subject of a deadline day £60m bid by the Premier League leaders, but the Foxes rejected the offer leaving Mahrez distraught.

The 26-year-old went AWOL from training and has attended his first session since the saga on Friday, however reports suggest he is now seeking fresh assurances from Leicester.

The Times claims that Mahrez wants Leicester to promise to sell him in the summer, but that the club are reluctant to agree to such a demand considering it could result in him leaving for a cut price.

Meanwhile, the Telegraph claims that Leicester have fined the player £240,000 for his two-week absence, while manager Claude Puel has confirmed the winger will miss Saturday’s game at Manchester City.

The Mirror state that Mahrez’s advisers claim the Foxes had already agreed to let him leave if a big club offered £50m, but still rejected a Manchester City bid in January.
