Riyad Mahrez not at Leicester training after Man City move fails to progress

Riyad Mahrez failed to report for Leicester City training again on Thursday, a day after a move to Manchester City failed to materialise, as per reports. 

The forward was the subject of multiple offers from the Premier League leaders, with the last of those understood to be a player-plus-cash offer worth an estimated £65m.

Leicester value the Algeria international much nearer £95m and talks broke down with Man City unwilling to go further than what turned out to be their final bid.

Mahrez is understood to have told Leicester his emotional state is not strong enough to play football at the moment.

Leicester boss Claude Puel hoped Mahrez would return to training “with a smile” after the defeat at Goodison Park and was happy to have him re-integrate into the squad before Thursday’s failure to report for training.
