Now it has been revealed that Riyad Mahrez himself made one desperate attempt to find a way out, as the Algerian's representatives held talks with Manchester United, who hadn't been linked with any move for Mahrez at all.
So desperate was the Premier League victor to get away from his current club, he allegedly left his national team Algeria's training camp in order to force through a transfer.
Mahrez was then linked with FC Barcelona, Roma, Chelsea and the Red Devils as he appeared to be close to an exit from the Foxes, but United Kingdom newspaper the Leicester Mercury has now insisted the player was never a target for Mourinho.
However, the Star on Sunday claim that Mahrez's advisors were actually trying to secure a Deadline Day transfer to Manchester United.
It seems very unlikely that any side would be willing to pay Leicester's asking price in the January transfer window, since such big money signings are generally made later in the year. Let us know in the comments section below.
But Leicester didn't receive any bids for the former Premier League Player of the Year, instead selling Danny Drinkwater to Chelsea for £35million.
However despite their best efforts they failed to engineer a move away from the King Power Stadium, and Mahrez will now be with the Foxes until at least January.
