Mahrez’s alternative who Man City is taking. Europe’s transfer market has been in complete disarray for the Saudi Pro League. Every day there are reports of footballers moving to the Saudi league one by one. Manchester City’s Algerian star Riyad Mahrez has added a new name. The City star is joining the Saudi Arabian club Al Ahli. And in the meantime, Pep Guardiola has found his alternative.
Footballer hunting program of Saudi League is still going on. They are still bringing in the best footballers in the world in the jingle of money. Al Ahli has already completed the contract with Man City’s Riyad Mahrez. The Algerian star will be seen in their jersey from next season. The club has joined the Algerian in exchange for 30 million pounds.
The City boss has also chosen who will be the replacement for an important player like Mahrez. Pep Guardiola’s first choice is Barcelona’s Brazilian star Rafinha. Santi Aona, the journalist of Foot Market, said that Manchester City has already started negotiations with Barcelona regarding the contract. Not just scouts, Man City have made Rafinha their top target.
Last season, Barcelona bought Rafinha from Leeds United of the Premier League for 55 million pounds. The Catalan club is in no rush to sell him. However, the Spanish club will release him if he gets a bid that matches the purchase price.
But not only City, PSG and Aston Villa are also eyeing the Brazilian star. However, Manchester City, the club that won the trouble last season, is far ahead in the race for Rafinhaq power.
