Man United prepare Harry Maguire-sized bid for Harry Maguire

Revealed The top five most creative players at the 2018 World Cup

Revealed The top five most creative players at the 2018 World Cup

New Manchester City signing Riyad Mahrez has explained what motivated him to join the Citizens after four years at Leicester City.

Mahrez, so upset at not getting his move to City at the beginning of the year that he sat out two matches, said his new club were revolutionising the game in England. I am very happy to be here and will try to give my best for the club.

City director of football Txiki Begiristain is confident Mahrez will prove a valuable addition as the champions look to mount a successful defence of their Premier League title and succeed in Europe.

The 25-year-old centre-back, who signed for Leicester from Hull last year for £17m, is now one of the club's most prized assets after excelling on the biggest stage. It is a goal. They're redefining the English game and I want to be a part of it. "Pep is committed to playing attacking football, which is ideal for me, and City's performances last season were outstanding".

City had enquired about the 2016 PFA player of year in the closing days of the transfer window but refused to meet Leicester's asking price.

Liverpool are second favourites to sign Maguire this summer at 9/2, while Chelsea and Manchester City can both be backed at 10/1.

Mahrez, however, believes he is capable of breaking into Pep Guardiola's plans.

"He is excellent with set-pieces, free-kicks and corners and I think he is exactly what City needed".

There's always been a sense that Mourinho has been unhappy with United's backline (and life in general, for that matter), and the report adds that Maguire's arrival could finally spell the end of the road for Chris Smalling or Phil Jones. I wanted to work under him and to play in this club. "If I'd moved sooner maybe I wouldn't have been happy, I don't know".
