La Liga

European giants going toe-to-toe for Leicester City star

mahrez8The Leicester City fans are gathered at the bar in The Transfer Tavern this evening discussing reports of potential bids for one of their stand out players this season.

The Sun is reporting that Spanish giants Barcelona and Real Madrid are preparing offers of around £25 million for Riyad Mahrez, as they look to lure the impressive Algerian forward to La Liga.

Mahrez has hit fourteen goals for Leicester so far this season and has been one of the key components of a squad that currently leads the Premier League by two points, ahead of Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur.

Leicester manager Claudio Ranieri will be keen to hold on to his star players during the summer and will no doubt be spending the summer months fending off bids for both Mahrez and Jamie Vardy from Europe’s top clubs, following their impressive seasons to date.

The Leicester fans in The Tavern are not surprised by the news of potential bids for Mahrez and expect more clubs to become interested, they remain hopeful that their club will turn down all bids for their stars as they begin to dream about Champions League football next season.

Leicester fans, can you keep Mahrez? Let us know in the comments below!
