The Leicester City fans who are gathered at the bar in The Transfer Tavern this evening are discussing reports that one of their star players wants to remain with the club next season.
The Daily Star is reporting that Riyad Mharez is not at all flattered by interest from PSG and that he sees his immediate future with Leicester.
Mahrez has been a revelation for the club so far this season and has helped Leicester to within one victory of being crowned Premier League champions.
“I am not too excited about the prospect of PSG. It is my town, but I do not see myself going back to Paris. England, that is it. France does not really excite me, I love England.”
Our landlord in The Tavern believes that Mahrez is right to turn down the move to PSG should they make an offer as he feels that regular first team football at Leicester will propel the forward on to bigger and better things.
As for the Leicester fans they are delighted by Mahrez’s comments and are hopeful the club will be crowned champions at Old Trafford this weekend.
Will Mahrez remain at Leicester next season? Let us know in the comments below!
