Riyad Mahrez is all set to join the Saudi League

The process of transferring Man City's Riyad Mahrez to Al Ahli will soon be completed. The transfer fee has been approved by the Citizens, the Saudi club Al Ahli started courting Mahrez last week and it has seriously responded to the player's desire to find a new club. Mahrez's desire to leave the Etihad Stadium is inseparable from his desire to find regular playing minutes.

That's why a personal agreement was quickly reached between the two parties. The 32-year-old player is interested in a career outside Europe. Even so, bringing Mahrez was not easy because, from the beginning, Pep Guardoila's side did not want to part with this Algerian national team player. Even if forced to let go, the transfer fee must be satisfactory. Al Expert's first offer of €20.7 million was not satisfactory, so it was rejected.

Journalist Fabrizio Romano report then reported that Al-Ahli's second offer was accepted and the second bid was €35 million. He was the first African player to win five EPL titles Previously, Mahrez had agreed to a contract that was offered by Al Ahli. Mahrez has since made 236 appearances for the club across all competitions, scoring 78 goals and providing 59 assists. Rumours are circulating that his contract runs until 2027. Mahrez will also receive a significant salary increase. He could earn three and a half times his current salary at Man City, his medical test is scheduled for July 24.

The contract discussion process allowed Man City not to join the pre-season squad in South Korea. Mahrez will become Al Expert's third elite recruit in the summer of 2023. He will follow Edouard Mendy (Chelsea) and Roberto Firmino (Liverpool). After Mahrez, Al Ahli will soon complete the fourth transfer. The player in question is Newcastle winger Allan Saint-Maximin.
