Mahrez happy to have helped Man City sign Haaland


Riyad Mahrez has welcomed new Manchester City signings Erling Haaland and Julian Alvarez.

Mahrez penned a new deal to 2025 on Friday.

Haaland is likely to profit many times from Mahrez trickery and vision, and Riyad believes he is a terrific signing – one he hopes he influenced to come to City.

“I think he is a very good signing for us," he said.

“He is a good striker who can score goals, different from the strikers we had in the past but a very good addition to the team and I hope he is going to improve the level of the team and help us to win things.

“I saw him in Mykonos two years ago and he said to me that he really wanted to come, and I said, 'yeah, you should because it's the best club' and year later he is here!"

Mahrez believes City have done smart business elsewhere, too with Kalvin Phillips, Julian Alvarez and Stefan Ortega Moreno all recently arriving at the Club.

“I think they are good signings," he said.

“We trust the club. They always make good signings, and they are always doing the right things.

“We believed even before we seen them that they are good players and more after we have seen them in training, they are, so we are happy."
