Leicester City winger Riyad Mahrez is set to complete his long-awaited move to the Premier League champions after Leicester City agreed to sell him for about £60 million (R1 billion).

After the successes of last season, many had called the side the one of the greatest Premier League teams of all time, not least because of the insane points total they achieved at the end of the campaign.

It looks as though one of the key players in Leicester's legendary Premier League triumph in the 2015/16 season will be moving on in the very near future with a move to Premier League champs Manchester City on the cards. He's the greatest thing to come out of Essex since Nick Frost. Guardiola's men have a lot of games to play next season and Mahrez will certainly get his chance to shine.

Mahrez was close to joining City on Deadline Day in January, but Leicester asked for £80 million (R1.36 billion) at the time, and City pulled out of the deal.

City had lodged a £50m bid in the January window, which was turned down.

Rob Tanner, a journalist with the Leicester Mercury and offer of of the official book to commemorate the Foxes' title success two years ago, expected Mahrez to go.

Regardless of being at odds with the Foxes, Mahrez managed to score 13 goals in 41 appearances last season and Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola feels that he is the missing cog in his team.
