A report from Spanish newspaper Don Balon claims that Real Madrid are interested in signing Mahrez and City will demand €100 million for him. It has also been claimed that PSG are interested in signing the 29-year-old as well.

Mahrez has featured in 37 matches across all competitions for City this season so far, netting nine goals while providing 14 assists. The Algerian international has been a regular in 2019/20 but once Leroy Sane is back to full fitness, there’s no telling whether he will enjoy as much first-team opportunities. Hence, a move away from the club might do him well in terms of game time.

Mahrez would be a decent addition to Real Madrid’s squad but €100 million for someone like him who is approaching 30 seems a tad redundant.
