Manchester City is alleged to have made contact with a former Leeds United player.

Riyad Mahrez of Manchester City has been linked with a summer move to Saudi Arabian club Al-Ahli.

According to Foot Mercato, Al-Ahli would offer €20 million for the winger, and the Citizens will ‘consider’ letting him go.
If the Algerian is sold, Manchester City is said to have Barcelona’s Raphinha, who left Leeds United just last summer, ‘in mind’ to replace him. He’s been described as Pep Guardiola‘s ‘top’ target.

From his stint at Leeds United, the 26-year-old knows his way around the Premier League, and his profile appeals to Pep Guardiola.

According to Foot Mercato, Manchester City sporting director Txiki Begiristain and Barcelona director Deco have made preliminary contact on a prospective trade for the Brazil international.

According to the publication, this isn’t ‘terrible news’ for the Catalan club because selling Raphinha would help their finances, and they need [€60 million] until August 31st to recruit new players.

Despite trying hard to get him from Leeds United, a speedy sale has been mooted on several occasions in recent months.
Earlier in the transfer window, the South American was linked to other teams but insisted on staying at the Camp Nou. Raphinha will ‘definitely’ consider this time, according to Foot Mercato, if Manchester City takes firm moves to capture his services.
