Meanwhile, NAIJ.com previously had reported that Manchester City are reportedly close to landing Leicester City star Riyad Mahrez this summer.

Mahrez, who eclipses the previous club record of £57m when Aymeric Laporte joined from Athletic Bilbao in January, was announced immediately after the full-time whistle in France's 1-0 victory over Belgium in the World Cup semi-final.

Here is the photograph - is it Riyad Mahrez?

City have always been in pursuit of Mahrez, having seen a cash-plus-player offer of £65m for the 27-year-old rejected in January, with Leicester demanding £80m to let him go in the middle of the season.

City were left furious when Leicester set a price tag of £90m which saw City pull out of the deal at the start of the year.

"Watching them from afar has been a pleasure".

"Pep is committed to playing attacking football, which is flawless for me, and City's performances last season were outstanding.

"Riyad is a hugely talented player".

Mahrez joined Leicester from Le Havre for £400,000 in 2014, and was named the PFA Players' Player of the Year during their surprise Premier League triumph in 2015-16. "We're sure he will bring additional attacking quality to our squad".

He made 180 appearances for Leicester, scoring 48 goals.

Mahrez will be looking forward to get another shot at the Premier League title with the Citizens in the coming campaign after the Guardiola-tutored side became the first English side to smash a 100-point mark in the Premier League.

Manchester City have also been linked with Napoli midfielder Jorginho, with the Italy global reportedly left out of their pre-season training camp squad.
