Riyad Mahrez: Manchester City sign winger from Leicester for £60m

The couple have a young child together

And a leaked photo online suggested the deal was completed hours before City made it official.

His arrival at the Etihad ensures the end of a lengthy pursuit by Guardiola, the City manager, who was left frustrated by Leicester's hardline stance in the January transfer window. Pep is committed to playing attacking football, which is a flawless for me, and City's performances last season were outstanding.

He later said he had "regrets" over the dispute, during which the Professional Footballers' Association offered to be a mediator between club and player.

Mahrez, 27, moved for a fee of £60 million - a club record for Man City - after undergoing a medical and will wear the No. 26 shirt.

"Watching them from afar has been a pleasure".

Beyond the geographical and linguistic ties, many of these players also know each other intimately from the Premier League . With the starting XI more or less picking itself, the only dilemma in Deschamps' mind would be the left midfield position.

"Riyad is a hugely talented player. Pep is committed to playing attacking football, which is a ideal for me, and City's performances last season were outstanding", he said on the club's official website. "He beats defenders and creates space", Begiristain said on the club's website.

"I believe my own game can develop under Pep's management".

Riyad's progress with Leicester City also saw him firmly establish himself as a key member of the Algerian national team, with whom he played in the 2014 FIFA World Cup Finals and both the 2015 and 2017 Africa Cup of Nations.

Mahrez becomes Pep Guardiola's first major signing of the summer following a season in which the Citizens broke several records en route to the Premier League title.

Two years later, he was named PFA Player of the Year after scoring 17 goals and setting up a further 10 as they won the Premier League title.
