Manchester City, Riyad Mahrez talks 'lasted a week'

Manchester City, Riyad Mahrez talks 'lasted a week'

Champions-elect City offered Leicester City a £65m package for Mahrez, including £15m-rated winger Patrick Roberts, but negotiations collapsed when the Foxes held out for an £80m cash deal.

Puyel said he expected Leicester fans to give Mahrez a good reception if he plays in the home game against Sheffield United, adding: "I think it was good reception when he came on against Man City".

"For some other teams, it's not a difficulty to replace their players".

City eventually shelved their interest, while Leicester saw a star turn go AWOL as he skipped training, and Puel believes the whole unfortunate situation reflects badly on how big-spending teams go about their business.

'For me, it's important.

He appeared as a second-half substitute in Leicester's 5-1 Premier League defeat at Manchester City last weekend and is expected to start their FA Cup tie against Sheffield United on Friday after showing improvement in training.

An "equal world", Rock says would be one where white mothers are mourning their children "standing next to Al Sharpton". The special, which premiered Wednesday, opens with Rock's candid views on police brutality against African Americans.

"We had some solicitation of another club, and to make solicitation just one or two days before the end of the transfer window, I don't know if it's normal", said the Leicester boss.

"I can not suffer this situation because other teams make this thing against us".

"We need perhaps some others' respect", Puel said of Manchester City's approach for Mahrez at a press conference on Wednesday. We have stayed united.

'He always made good performances but he is enjoying to train, it's a pleasure when he gets to touch the ball'.

"He has come back with a smile. It is important now, together, to look forward".

"They welcomed him with a good feeling, now it's important to move on".
