Manchester City will complete the long-awaited signing of Riyad Mahrez from Leicester City this week in a £60million deal, Sky Sports News and the ever-reliable John Percy of Telegraph report.

City were heavily linked with Mahrez back in January but ended their pursuit over Leicester's demands for a £95 million deal, per the Guardian's Jamie Jackson and Stuart James.

Mahrez will cost and initial £60m from the Foxes, with add-ons that will take his overall price just short of Leicester's initial £80m asking price for the Algerian.

Mahrez will represent another club record transfer for City, breaking the previous mark set when French defender Aymeric Laporte joined from Athletic Bilbao for £57m in January.

Claude Puel will still be on the search for a wide player to replace Mahrez and Patrick Roberts has been discussed as a £15m addition to the deal.

It looks as though one of the key players in Leicester's legendary Premier League triumph in the 2015/16 season will be moving on in the very near future with a move to Premier League champs Manchester City on the cards.

Leicester have allowed him extra time off since Mahrez - who has made 179 appearances for them, scoring 48 times - went off on global duty with his country last month.

It is understood the 27-year-old wants a resolution before his proposed return to Leicester next week and negotiations are continuing on that basis.
