Manchester City eyeing move for Atletico Madrid’s Saul Niguez

Pep Guardiola explains why Riyad Mahrez is not starting for Man City

Mahrez struggles for game time in 2019 Riyad Mahrez joined Manchester City in July of 2018 from Leicester for a fee of around £60m. Mahrez enjoyed a decent first half of the season at City.

While Mahrez was perhaps not performing as well as his high price tag may have warranted, he was still getting games and improving. LONDON, ENGLAND – FEBRUARY 25: Pep Guardiola t...

Manchester City news: Pep Guardiola reveals why Riyad Mahrez hasn't been playing

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has apologised for Riyad Mahrez's lack of action. Mahrez, City's £60million record signing, has not started a Premier League game since the victory at Southampton on December 30.
