Riyad Mahrez has finally completed his £60m club record move to Manchester City, 160 days after Pep Guardiola's January bid was rejected by Leicester.

Mahrez joined the Foxes in January 2014 for just £400,000 from French Ligue 2 side Le Havre.

Mahrez was targeted by City during the winter but the two clubs ultimately failed to strike a deal, with negotiations going down to the final day of the transfer window.

That evenness is why France is the team to beat in the mind of Jeffrey Marcus, publisher of the World Cup newsletter "The Banter". The forward has been criticized by Henry in the past, but he said there were no hard feelings - just his hunger to win.

Mahrez struggled to replicate his form the following year with the Foxes falling short as a team in the Premier League, though like his team-mates, he improved after the departure of Ranieri and ultimately accrued 10 goals and seven assists in all competitions.

A club statement from Leicester said: "Riyad leaves with the best wishes of everybody who has worked with him at Leicester City Football Club".

Meanwhile, NAIJ.com previously had reported that Manchester City are reportedly close to landing Leicester City star Riyad Mahrez this summer.

Mahrez was named PFA Players' Player of the Year after scoring 17 league goals in 37 matches as unfashionable Leicester shocked the soccer world by winning the Premier League two years ago.

"Pep is committed to playing attacking football, which is ideal for me, and City's performances last season were outstanding. We're sure he will bring additional attacking quality to our squad". "They're redefining the English game and I wanted to be a part of it", Mahrez said on his new club's website.

"I believe my own game can develop under Pep's management".
