Man United prepare £29m swoop for Premier League star

mahrez8Manchester United fans in the Transfer Tavern have told us that their Christmas list is full of changes for their side and their pleased to see the board’s hierarchy share similar ambitions.

The Daily Express states Manchester United will lodge a mammoth £29m bid in January in an attempt to lure Riyad Mahrez to Old Trafford from Premier League leaders Leicester City.

The Red Devils are struggling this season, winning just three of their last 13 matches, with pressure rising upon Louis Van Gaal- particularly after their early exit from the Champions League.

24-year-old Mahrez has been sensational this season, scoring 13 goals and assisting six more, and lifting the Foxes to the top of the Premier League table.

Van Gaal is desperate to sign a pacy winger to improve his side’s standings and Mahrez is top of their wish-list, with United ready to beat Arsenal to the signature of the Algerian star.

Leicester City are desperate to keep hold of their valued stars, Mahrez and Jamie Vardy, but it remains to be seen whether the Foxes can fight-off a massive switch from one of English football’s giants.

United fans, is Mahrez worth £29m? Let us know in the comments below!
