In an exclusive interview with Oui Hustle, Manchester City’s superstar winger Riyad Mahrez has provided an update on his future at the club.
The 30-year old now has two years left in his contract and there has been a lot of speculation around his future at the Etihad. With Jack Grealish and Harry Kane set to arrive at Manchester City in a whopping 200 million pounds deal, Mahrez’s future looked bleak.

But the mercurial winger has put his foot down and has decided to stay at Manchester City.
In the interview, he was quoted as saying,
"“What if I want to go higher? I do not see what is higher [than Manchester City].”He also declared his love for English football by saying,“I really love England and English football is wonderful. I don’t want to leave. I still have goals to pursue here.”"
The former Leicester City player is at the peak of his career at this moment and to leave Manchester City and Pep Guardiola would be looked at as a step down for him.
But if Jack Grealish does end up coming to Manchester, Mahrez will have to fight for the spot with another talented player. The list already includes players like Phil Foden, Ferran Torres and if they stay Raheem Sterlin and Bernardo Silva.
Do you think it is a favourable move for Manchester City to keep Mahrez within their ranks and keep him at the club? If yes, who do you think should be offloaded to make way for Harry Kane and Jack Grealish.
