Benjamin Mendy welcomes Riyad Mahrez to Manchester City

Riyad Mahrez talks up former Leicester team-mate Harry Maguire

Former City favourite Ali Benarbia believes City have made the flawless signing in Riyad Mahrez.

Every Love Island contestant if they were an England player - World Cup!

"Harry Maguire was one of the stars of the England team at the World Cup and punters feel Manchester United are going to pursue the defender and make him their man before the Premier League season begins", said Coral's John Hill.

However, Leicester City want to keep the player, especially after proving how good he can be on the highest stage- the World Cup. "He'll have to decide".

However, Mahrez finally got his wish of signing for the Citizens this week, and has since explained his desire to compete in the UEFA Champions League and play under Pep Guardiola.

The Algerian posed for photographs before taking a seat and answering questions about his move to the Etihad Stadium. City set new records as they accumulated 100 points and scored 106 goals in winning the title by a 19-point margin last season. "Players at top clubs always have to face competition for places, it is normal for big clubs to have a lot of great players and City are a big club with a big manager", he explained. "We can be successful over the coming years and I believe my game can develop under Pep's management".

He said: "They (City) offered and Leicester rejected the offers, but it's the past". This is the past and we are looking forward now.

"The most important thing is I'm here, happy and starting a new challenge and a new life", he said."[January] is in the past, I'm here now.it's what happened before and I'm happy now.

"It's a club which wants to win the Champions League". It is a goal.

Yet Mahrez, who joined Man City on Tuesday for a fee reported by British media to be 60 million pounds ($79 million), feels that they have the tools required to lift European club football's elite trophy next season on Thursday.
