Man City fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern are a buzz with excitement ahead of the new season, with a new look side under Pep Guardiola beginning to take shape, the first game cannot come quick enough.
According to reports in The Sun, the Sky Blues are preparing a £33m bid for Leicester’s key man and title winner, Riyad Mahrez.
However, the Foxes slapped a whopping £45m valuation on last season’s PFA Players’ Player of the Year in an attempt to deter any potential suitors.
According to reports from Sky Sports, Ranieri is confident that the Algerian international will remain at the King Power and that he wants to stay.
However, there is hope for the blue half of Manchester, with the 25-year-old stalling over agreeing a new contract worth £100,000 a week.

City and Leicester fans, we want to hear from you! Could Guardiola really pull off this deal? Or will Mahrez sign a new deal? Let us know below…
