Mahrez Signs New Two-Year Manchester City Contract

Manchester City winger Riyad Mahrez has put an end to the speculation regarding his future at the club by signing a new two-year deal.

The Algerian international’s previous contact was set to expire in the summer of 2023 and he had been locked in talks over a renewal for several months.

The Citizens had been hugely reluctant to lose the star that has helped them with three Premier League titles, three League Cups and an FA Cup along with reaching a maiden Champions League final.

Mahrez joined Manchester City in 2018 from another English Premier League side Leicester City for a fee around £60m.

He has since made 189 appearances for the Club, scoring 63 goals and contributing 45 assists.

“”I’m very happy to sign the new deal,” Mahrez told the club website after signing the new deal.“I have enjoyed every single minute of my time here. It’s a pleasure to be part of such an incredible Club.

“To have helped us achieve the success we have enjoyed in the past four seasons has been unforgettable and made us all hungry to look to achieve even more.

“I would also like to thank Pep, Txiki and the coaching staff, both for the way they have helped me to develop as a player and for pushing me to continue to improve.

“Now I just want to try and play my part in helping us be successful next season and beyond.”

Manchester City’s Director of Football Begiristain said; “Riyad has played a major part in our success in the four years since he joined us, and we are all delighted he has agreed this new deal.

“He has brought so much to the Club with his skill, talent, commitment, and desire to win evident from the moment he first arrived. I also know that Pep and the coaching staff relish working with Riyad.

“He is one of the most exciting wingers operating in the game and we are all very excited to know he will be part of our ongoing drive to try and achieve more success.”

Mahrez joined his former club  Leicester from Le Havre in January 2014 and helped them to a first place finish in the Championship.

Two years later, he was named PFA Player of the Year after scoring 17 goals and setting up a further 10 as they won the Premier League title.

He netted four and got two assists in the Champions League the following season as his side made it to the quarter-finals.
