But the Premier League champions remained keen on Mahrez, who scored 13 goals in 41 appearances for Leicester last season.

Riyad Mahrez celebrated his move to Manchester City by enjoying a night out with his family on Tuesday.

Leicester rejected City's offer of £50m plus winger Patrick Roberts - valued at £15m - in January, and Mahrez missed two games during the saga.

"I am very happy to have signed for City, a team that plays great football under Guardiola", said Mahrez, a Premier League victor with Leicester.

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

The Algeria global handed in a transfer request in January, but having failed to seal a move to the Etihad Stadium, the 27-year-old was initially told to stay away from first-team training for a 10-day period by his employers.

He joined Leicester from French club Le Havre in 2014 and played 158 games in all competition for the Foxes, scoring 42 goals, starring as they pulled off a surprise Premier League win in 2016.

He later said he had "regrets" over the dispute, during which the Professional Footballers' Association offered to be a mediator between club and player.

'I think we can be successful over the coming years and I believe my own game can develop under Pep's management'.

But he has now become the Premier League champions' first summer signing since winning the title after knuckling down and biding his time to earn his dream move.

Mahrez helped them escape relegation the next season before their fairytale run to the title as they finished the campaign 10 points clear of second-placed Arsenal having started the season as 5000-1 outsiders and tipped for relegation.
