Riyad Mahrez's wife Rita posed for a sizzling selfie

The 27-year-old Algeria worldwide will join the Manchester side after Leicester City accepted a Club-record fee for the transfer.

This time though Leicester said they had sold him for what is a club-record fee, with some reports suggesting the champions paid £60 million ($79.6million), which would make it their record buy.

According to Sky Sports, the 27-year-old Algerian will undergo a medical this week with all other aspects of the contract between the two clubs already agreed upon.

They walked away from a potential deal for Mahrez in January because they were put off by Leicester's valuation.

'Watching them from afar has been a pleasure. Pep is committed to playing attacking football, which is a ideal for me, and City's performances last season were outstanding.

Mahrez had come close to joining City when they made an offer for him on the final day of the transfer window in January, while he submitted a transfer request to the Foxes.

"I believe my own game can develop under Pep's management". "He beats defenders and creates space", City director of football Txiki Begiristain said.

He will compete with Sane, Raheem Sterling and Bernardo Silva for a place in City's powerful front line, with strikers Gabriel Jesus and Sergio Aguero also available.

Mahrez will be looking forward to get another shot at the Premier League title with the Citizens in the coming campaign after the Guardiola-tutored side became the first English side to smash a 100-point mark in the Premier League.

"Over the past few years, he has established himself as one of the Premier League's most exciting players".
