Transfer news: Mahrez linked with switch to PSG

Riyad Mahrez could be parting ways with Manchester City.

Whether the European football season will be completed remains to be seen with the English Premier League becoming the latest competition to suspend all its fixtures in the wake of the global CO-VID19 pandemic, but the transfer mill will churn on.

According to Calciomercato  Manchester City is open to letting the winger go in the upcoming transfer window following their UEFA ban, and PSG has emerged as Riyad Mahrez’s destination of choice.

The 29-year-old, who is contracted to the Premier League club until 2023, has scored nine goals in 37 appearances for the Citizens this season – while chipping in with further 14 assists.

City could be forced to offload several players at the end of the 2019-20 season after the club were banned from participating in European competitions for the next two seasons after contravening financial fair play regulations.

The Algeria international joined the Manchester club from Leicester City in 2018. He played a key part in helping the Foxes to Premier League glory in 2016, winning the Player of the Season award.

The 2019 Africa Cup of Nations winner added another Premier League title to his collection last season, but City are set to lose out to Liverpool in the current campaign.
