Riyad Mahrez leaves Manchester City and signs for Saudi club Al-Ahli

32-year-old Algerian international Riyad Mahrez is leaving Manchester City to sign for Saudi club Al-Ahli, the Premier League club announced on Friday.

The winger joined Manchester City in 2018 from Leicester City and leaves the English championship after winning eleven titles with the citizens, including the Champions League, Premier League and FA Cup treble last season.

City agreed to a transfer worth about 35 million euros ($38.6 million) with Al-Ahli last week.

“I came to City to win trophies and enjoy my football and I’ve achieved all of that and much more,” Mahrez was quoted as saying in a club statement.

“I have spent five unforgettable years with this football team, working with incredible players, fantastic fans and the best coach in the world,” adds the Algerian, whose record also includes the 2016 Premier League with Leicester.

Mahrez is the last big name to join the Saudi championship, where he will meet another of the protagonists in the Foxes title: the Frenchman N’Golo Kanté, who joined Al-Ittihad last month.
