Leicester's Riyad Mahrez: Joining Man City would have been 'a good move'

Riyad Mahrez admits joining Manchester City 'is a good move for everyone' and suggests he could still leave Leicester City this summer.

Mahrez, 27, scored his first goal at the weekend since a protracted transfer saga over a proposed move to Manchester City, which resulted in a 10-day absence from the club.

"It was hard, I've always been in contact with the club". Everything is very good. "When the team-mates and the club were behind me it was OK, it was very easy to come back here".

According to Corriere dello Sport, Mahrez is keen on forcing through a move to Roma this summer, but it is thought that the two clubs are yet to agree a deal for the 27-year-old.

Leicester City have confirmed Riyad Mahrez's Facebook account was hacked after a post emerged announcing his retirement. It's behind me and if we start talking about this it's like coming back to this transfer window.

'Like I said, it was hard, I spoke with the players, I spoke with manager, spoke with everyone, everyone was okay, everyone was good'.

"It was hard, but I spoke with the players, I spoke with the manager, I spoke with everyone and everyone was OK, everyone was good", he said.

Despite his assurances, Leicester fans will still fear the winger has his heart set on a move to the Etihad, especially as he admitted he wanted to join City in the summer. "We are very far away from the transfer window".

"In football players come, players leave, I'm not saying I'm coming or going", he added.

"My mind and my focus is on Leicester", he said.

"That is all I am focused on, so the transfer window, I don't want to talk about it". "Like I said, we moved on and now it's the past". The club handled it very well.

Mahrez said: "I wasn't bothered".

Leicester ran a feature on Mahrez on their website on Wednesday looking at the impact of the player this season, suggesting the Facebook post was a hoax.
