Riyad Mahrez talks up former Leicester team-mate Harry Maguire

Mahrez has pointed to the Champions League as his reason for joining Man City. AFP

Former City favourite Ali Benarbia believes City have made the ideal signing in Riyad Mahrez. Maguire's impressive displays in Russian Federation have made him a wanted player, with Leicester City concerned enough to be considering the offer of a significant pay rise.

Maguire scored in England's quarter-final victory over Sweden and emerged as one of Gareth Southgate's most reliable defenders as the Three Lions achieved their best performance at a World Cup since 1990. But Leicester is a good club as well, so it's him, he'll have to decide and see'.

"I'm very confident about myself and I hope to improve this team".

"I think City will prioritise the Premier League this season, but also look to do really well in the Champions League as well, especially after the disappointment of losing to Liverpool". 'Pep is committed to playing attacking football, which is a flawless for me, and City's performances last season were outstanding.

"The Champions League is for big clubs".

He said: "They (City) offered and Leicester rejected the offers, but it's the past".

Mahrez is now looking forward to working with manager Pep Guardiola and the rest of the squad, who won the title with a record 100 points and 106 goals.

"Now it's time for me to move on and try to build on what I have developed here, but I will always remember my time at the club with great joy and pride".

"I've gone "no you don't do Richard Dunne for pace, he's the quickest thing you've ever seen in your life".

What happened then is something Mahrez wants to put behind him. I made the decision to come here because I want to be part of that. I thought what City did past year was fantastic, it was unbelievable to break all those Premier League records, but I am confident about myself. "Now I'm here and it's the most important".
