Mahrez completes £30m Al Ahli move from Man City

Riyad Mahrez has completed a £30m move to Al Ahli from Manchester City after five years at the Etihad Stadium.

Mahrez had been given permission to miss City's pre-season tour of Japan and South Korea to finalise the move.

The 32-year-old Algeria international winger has now signed a three-year contract with the Saudi Pro League side.

Since signing for City in 2018 from Leicester, Mahrez has won four Premier League titles, two FA Cups, three Carabao Cups and the Champions League with Manchester City.

He arrived at the Etihad in the summer of 2018 for a then club-record £60m after playing an influential role in Leicester's Premier League title-winning season in 2015/16.

"To play for Manchester City has been an honour and privilege," said Mahrez, who will celebrate his 33rd birthday next February.
