Man City ‘won’t block Riyad Mahrez’s PSG transfer’ but French giants must stump up £80m to land winger – The Sun

MANCHESTER CITY are willing to let leave Riyad Mahrez this summer – but Paris Saint-Germain must fork out £80million.

The French giants have set their sights on the former Leicester star as Kylian Mbappe has been linked with a move to Real Madrid.

According to Goal, Pep Guardiola will not block Mahrez's move to the Ligue 1 leaders at the end of the season.

But the Premier League club are not willing to sell the 29-year-old for any less than their £80million asking price.

Mahrez, who joined City for £61m in 2018, has scored nine goals and made 14 in 37 appearances this term.

He is under contract at the Etihad until 2023, but PSG want to sign him as claims swirl that Mbappe is set to leave.

Real Madrid are said to be "obsessed" with the idea of signing the French World Cup winner this summer.

Mbappe has racked up 23 goals and nine assists for Thomas Tuchel's side during the 2019/20 campaign.

Tuchel will need to bolster his attacking options this summer as Neymar looks set to make a move back to Barcelona.

Pep Guardiola will also be keen to strengthen his squad in the summer – who are 25 points behind league leaders Liverpool.

City have been linked to Spurs striker Harry Kane, but Juventus look more likely to secure his signature.
