Riyad Mahrez Issues Two Demands For Him To Finally Return To Leicester City

Riyad Mahrez has gone AWOL at Leicester City following his collapsed transfer to Manchester City, and the Algerian winger has reportedly outlined the TWO demands for him to return.

Following the injury to Leroy Sane, Pep Guardiola wanted to reinforce his squad with the addition of Mahrez.

City offered a few monstrous offers on Deadline Day but to no prevail, with the Foxes hellbent on their stance - he's not for sale. Even with £60 million plus Patrick Roberts on the table.

Leicester didn't succumb to City's advances which 'depressed' Mahrez who has since missed training, and Premier League games.

And on Saturday, Leicester City face Manchester City with Mahrez unlikely to feature. Though if Claude Puel wants to call upon his services again, they have to meet two demands.

"He wants the club to provide an assurance that they will not stand in his way if City, or anyone else, want to sign him. Another solution could be to agree a release clause," per The Times.

Players' Union chief Gordon Taylor has extended a hand to help resolve the situation.

"If the issue needs us to help then the offer has been made. Leicester are looking to be patient and understanding," he said.

Taylor added: "We hope the player will appreciate the situation as it is at the moment. The sooner this is sorted out the better for everyone.

"But sometimes these things can take a short time and other times a lot longer.

"Of course. That's the only way you can be called in as a mediator, if you are prepared to listen to all sides," Taylor continued on if he had any sympathy with Leicester's situation.
