He is ready to move on, he has told Leicester City so, it’s no secret, but despite having received numerous compliments from prominent football figures, he is yet to receive an official offer to leave the Foxes this summer.
It’s an honour to receive compliments like this from such a big manager in world football
Riyad Mahrez told reporters after winning the Algerian Golden Ball, referring to Arsene Wenger, and things the Arsenal manager said about him recently in an interview.
But there’s a big difference between an offer and speculation, so there is nothing on the table at the moment
the Algerian added, clearing out that no club has knocked on Leicester City’s door yet, making an official offer.
As for his desire to leave the team with whom he earned an incredible Premier League title a year ago, he revealed exactly what he discussed about with the club twelve months ago, when he agreed to spend 2016-17 at the Foxes.
The chairman and I agreed that I would stay another year at the club and that he would let me leave at the end of the season. I think it would be the right time for me to leave, I have experienced everything at this football club. I went from the Championship to the Premier League, I stayed up with the team the next season, we won the Premier League, I won the PFA player of the year award, I played the Champions League, so we did something quite exceptional
Mahrez said, taking a good look back to what he has achieved with Leicester City.
