Riyad Mahrez is all set to complete his transfer move to Manchester City later this week.

Man City are reportedly edging ever closer to landing the signing of Leicester City ace Riyad Mahrez in a deal said to be worth £60m.

According to Sky Sports, Leicester has accepted a bid from the Premier League champions and the Algerian is set for a medical in the coming days.

City will pay Leicester an initial £60m for Algerian star Mahrez with a host of add-ons and extras.

Leicester have allowed him extra time off since Mahrez - who has made 179 appearances for Leicester, scoring 48 times - went off on global duty for his country in June.

Mahrez won the PFA Player of the Year award as Leicester won the Premier League in 2015/16 and has stayed with the club when many expected him to leave.

Leicester have allowed him extra time off since Mahrez - who has made 179 appearances for them, scoring 48 times - went off on worldwide duty with his country last month. That is fast approaching, with the winger due to return to the East Midlands next week after the club extended his holiday following recent internationals played by the north Africans.

Leicester have successfully fended off interest in their star winger over four transfer windows and demanded £80m from City in January.

The rumours are not going away about Real Madrid forward Cristiano Ronaldo signing for Juventus with the 33-year-old Portugal captain ready to accept a £26.5m-a-year contract.
