Man United interested in Leicester City’s Riyad Mahrez – report

by Ben Topliss

Manchester United are one of a number of sides interested in signing Leicester City forward Riyad Mahrez, according to reports.

Mahrez has enjoyed a remarkable campaign this term, scoring 17 goals and registering 11 assists in the Premier League to help Leicester secure a memorable and surprising title triumph.

Man United, Barcelona, Liverpool, Real Madrid and Manchester City have all expressed an interest in Mahrez but the Spanish sides are believed to have made contact with Leicester:

Mahrez has proven to be a match-winner on a number of occasions this season and he deserves all the plaudits that are coming his way.

His touch, dribbling and ability to glide past players is a joy to behold and he would bring a significant injection of quality to United if he did make the move to Old Trafford.

But it seems as if the best sides in world football are also in for the Algerian and United will have plenty of competition on their hands if Mahrez does decide to leave the Foxes. United would certainly be in a much better bargaining position if they secure Champions League football by winning their remaining league games.
