Mahrez’ move to Manchester City is on hold until dispute over £7.5m is resolved
The Algerian international was all set to move to Manchester City last month, but a new dispute has temporarily put the move on hold.
With a fee of around £75m all but agreed by the clubs, Mahrez is now demanding a 10% loyalty bonus for what he has done for City.
According to reports, Riyad claims that he is owed a HUGE £7.5m which is the equivalent to an eye-watering sum of £70,000 per week over two years.
He feels that he should be paid a loyalty bonus for helping the Foxes reach their highest point in their history.
In January 2018 the star handed in a transfer request to try and push a move to Manchester City which backfired.
Leicester rejected a bid of £55m for the Algerian which in turn made him hand in a transfer request.
In May the transfer request was withdrawn by Mahrez which would would mean a loyalty bonus would be paid should Leicester agree to sell him.
City owners are against the payment as it was Mahrez himself who handed in the transfer request, only to smartly withdraw this before being sold.
