Reports indicate that Riyad Mahrez, the winger for Manchester City, is potentially set to join Saudi Arabian club Al-Ahli, marking another significant departure of a high-profile player from Europe to the Middle East. Mahrez, who played a key role in City’s recent historic triple victory, still has two years remaining on his contract with the Etihad.
Having joined Manchester City in 2018 for a transfer fee of £60 million, Mahrez may conclude his five-year tenure at the club this summer.
According to information shared by Ben Jacobs of CBS, Mahrez has reached a verbal agreement with Al-Ahli, who participate in the Saudi Pro League, contributing to the ongoing trend of attracting prominent European football figures to the Middle East.
It should be noted that there are still negotiations pending between the two clubs in the deal, which are expected to be finalized within the next 24 to 48 hours. However, Mahrez himself is reportedly enthusiastic about the move, and Al-Ahli aims to swiftly complete the signing of this summer’s standout player.
