Mahrez makes clear Man City transfer statement after Arsenal speculation

Published

on

Manchester City star Riyad Mahrez has emphasised his commitment to his club amid Arsenal transfer rumours.

The forward has said he “doesn’t see higher” than the reigning Premier League champions after winning a hoard of trophies since signing for the side in 2018.

Mahrez has lifted the league, Carabao Cup and FA Cup at the Sky Blues and has insisted he wants to continue on his journey at City.

He said: “What if I want to go higher? I do not see what is higher [than Manchester City ].

“To try another championship [elsewhere]? No. I really love England and English football is wonderful. I don’t want to leave. I still have goals to pursue here.

“When you see Guardiola wants you, it’s flattering. The acclimatisation here was not easy, but our relationship today, everyone knows [is great],” he told YouTube channel Oui Hustle .

The fact Mahrez is looking to pursue trophies may be why he will steer clear of Arsenal as they failed to qualify for European football for the first time in 25 years last season.

City, on the other hand, came close to lifting the Champions League trophy in the last term after losing 1-0 to Chelsea in the final.

Mahrez isn’t the only star who Guardiola has managed to keep at the side as Fernandinho signed a one-year contract extension recently.

One player the manager is still looking to replace is Sergio Aguero who departed the club at the end of last season.

City’s main targets have been Borussia Dortmund’s Erling Haaland and Tottenham’s Harry Kane.

The England captain’s club future was said to be revealed after Euro 2020 was over and, with the tournament’s conclusion last Sunday, a deal with the striker could be announced soon.

‘Mohamed Salah now better than Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo’, Jurgen Klopp insists

Published

Jurgen Klopp insists Mohamed Salah is now the best player in the world football after his latest moment of magic.

Just two weeks after his breathtaking strike against Manchester City, the Egyptian King scored another wonderful solo effort in a 5-0 demolition of Watford.

The goal left Jermaine Jenas purring on co-commentary with those watching in awe of his magic.

It was Salah’s 10th goal of the season after a stunning run of form whilst he also provided assists for Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino.

After the game, manager Jurgen Klopp was asked where he ranks amongst the best in the world.

And he was in little doubt he deserves the top spot on current form – despite the past performances of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.

Asked where Salah ranks in his BT Sport interview, Klopp replied: “Top. Come on, we all see it, who’s better than him in this moment?

“That’s clear, there’s always this discussion and all these kinds of things.

“But we don’t have to talk about what Ronaldo and Messi did for world football or how long they were really in the dominant.

“In the moment I think it’s clear there’s nobody better than him. How it is, it’s not only since yesterday, he’s been in that shape for a while.

“He’s young enough to keep the shape a little bit longer.”

Leicester 4-2 Man Utd: Foxes add to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s misery

Published

Leicester City ended Manchester United’s 29-game unbeaten run away from home at the King Power Stadium on Saturday.

The Reds Devils took an early lead through a stunning Mason Greenwood goal but Youri Tielemans’ spectacular equaliser made it 1-1 just after the half-hour mark.

A faltering and lethargic United had David De Gea to thank for some late interventions in the hope of ensuring United came away from the match with a point.
But Caglar Soyuncu’s late strike appeared to have snatched the Foxes all three points before Marcus Rashford swiftly equalised on his return to action.

Jamie Vardy had other ideas, however, scoring a superb volley within 60 seconds of the restart as the pressure ramps up on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, whose side have gone three top-flight games without a win.

Patson Saka then wrapped it up in the dying minutes.

The two teams came into the match winless from their past two Premier League outings and were aiming to recover quickly following the international break.

Leicester went unbeaten against United last season in three league and FA Cup meetings to end a run of three successive Red Devils victories since Solskjaer took charge.
