Manchester City set to tie winger to new contract

Riyad Mahrez is ready to sign a new long-term deal and effectively commit the rest of his career to Manchester City, it has been reported.

A number of City attackers, including Gabriel Jesus and Raheem Sterling, have been heavily linked with an Etihad exit this month.

Yet despite being 31 and having just one year left to run on his current deal, it appears as though Mahrez will not be amongst those departing Manchester this summer.

Instead, The Sun report that there are plans to open talks with Mahrez over extending his contract, which currently sees the Algerian earn around £160,000-a-week.

It is added that Mahrez would like to see out the rest of his playing days at City, eyeing a three-year deal with an option for an extra year on top of that.

Mahrez’s Manchester City stint

Riyad Mahrez would begin his career in England by making history with Leicester City. The year after barely staving off relegation, the Foxes caused the biggest upset in Premier League history by going on to win the league title in 2015/16.

Mahrez then, of course, made the move to Manchester City in the summer of 2018.

The attacker departed Leicester for the Manchester outfit for a fee believed to be around the £61m mark.

And, since making the switch to the Etihad, Mahrez has played a key role in the continued success of Man City.

The Algerian has helped the Sky Blues to secure three league titles, an FA Cup, three League Cups and a Community Shield.
