Jahanbakhsh heading for Leicester City?

Riyad Mahrez aiming to win Champions League with Manchester City Riyad Mahrez’s first press conference: I didn’t hesitate to join Guardiola’s Man City

Gareth Southgate's England side has been full of stars in Russian Federation this summer on their superb run to the World Cup semi-final, although few have shown brighter than the 25-year-old defender. We didn't think we were going to lose but we did.

"They have everything to try to win the Champions League".

Mahrez, who was the 2016 PFA Player of the Year, nearly made the move in January but City refused to pay the Foxes' £95m asking price.

Mahrez, 27, joined the Premier League champions from Leicester City in a club-record £60m deal on Tuesday.

"I'm very happy to be here, to have signed for this club", said Mahrez.

Speaking at his formal unveiling at the City Football Academy, Mahrez said: "It's a club who wants to win this type of trophy".

People may have been glued to their screens when the actual drama unfolded, but the film was not a box office success. Heavy rains had flooded the Tham Luang cave blocking the football team in after they first entered on June 23.

Mahrez has been one of the most consistent forwards in the Premier League in recent seasons, with his player-of-the-year winning performances in Leicester's stunning title success of 2015-16 particularly standing out.

He said: "They (City) offered and Leicester rejected the offers, but it's the past". This is the past and we are looking forward now.

The deal to take him to the King Power Stadium, from then recently relegated Hull, cost just £17 million but he would now be worth almost triple that price. "I am happy, I am starting a new challenge in my life". I thought what City did a year ago was fantastic, it was unbelievable to break all those Premier League records, but I am confident about myself.

Guardiola already has an impressive number of attacking choices to pick from with Sergio Aguero, Gabriel Jesus, Raheem Sterling and Leroy Sane firing City to 100 points with a record 106 goals last season. I don't want to talk about the past too much.

"City have ambition to go further than the Champions League quarter-finals like they did last season".
