With just 12 months left on his deal, Manchester City’s Riyad Mahrez is going to be an interesting option for a few clubs in the summer.
That is unless the Algerian star renews, but with some change apparently set to take place in the summer at the Etihad Stadium outfit, this could be the time for the player to try something new.
Whether that is abroad or still in England remains to be seen, because a French source Foot Mercato are reporting that Chelsea are among the interested sides following the forward.
He has been key to the Citizens’ good form this term, bagging 23 goals and assisting another eight in 42 matches in all competitions, which is probably why manager Thomas Tuchel is poised to work with him.
The 31-year-old wide man knows the Premier League well, and would not have to move too far to start over should the Blues come knocking, but they are not the only ones.
The same report adds AC Milan, Real Madrid and Barcelona are also all keen, with the Italian giants close to being bought by the Bahrain-backed fund and allegedly very interested in him.
