Leicester City star Riyad Mahrez joins Premier League champions Manchester City

A photograph has appeared on social media of a man who appears to be Riyad Mahrez leaving a private hospital in Manchester with a camera man and someone else in Manchester City training gear.

The Football Club would like to place on record its honest thanks to Riyad for his major contribution to an incredible period of success since his arrival from French side Le Havre in January 2014.

Riyad Mahrez has finally completed his £60million move to Manchester City, becoming the club's record signing weeks before their Premier League title defence. Pep is committed to playing attacking football, which is a flawless for me, and City's performances last season were outstanding.

"Watching them from afar has been a pleasure".

Mahrez went on strike and missed two games after Leicester refused to sell him in the January transfer window. "They're redefining the English game and I wanted to be a part of it", Mahrez said on City's website. "He beats defenders and creates space", City's director of football Txiki Begiristain said.

"Riyad is a hugely talented player".

Since Mahrez made his Premier League debut in 2014, only eight players - Eden Hazard, Diego Costa, Eriksen, Jamie Vardy, Alexis Sanchez, Romelu Lukaku, Sergio Aguero and Harry Kane - have been involved in more goals. Pep is committed to playing attacking football, which is a ideal for me, and City's performances last season were outstanding. "We're sure he will bring additional attacking quality to our squad".

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

But he has now become the Premier League champions' first summer signing since winning the title after knuckling down and biding his time to earn his dream move.
