Man Utd to challenge City to sign central defender

Man Utd to challenge City to sign central defender

"He fought, he played really good and he scored goals and it's so important, we needed it". This side has depth and is filled with players that are world-class.

The Algeria winger missed Leicester's last two Premier League matches and hasn't been training at the club.

With City dominating possession and David Silva absent, De Bruyne ran the show for Pep Guardiola's men, assisting their first three goals, while Aguero ran riot in the second half.

Mahrez's sudden U-turn could see Puel provide him with the flawless platform with which to show City why they should maintain their interest when the transfer window reopens in the summer.

City took the lead in the third minute as Sterling converted Kevin De Bruyne's cross at the far post after ghosting past Marc Albrighton.

"Over the past 10 days many people claiming to be my friend have spoken about me and things they know nothing about", Mahrez said in a statement carried by the Leicester Mercury.


Sergio Aguero could score in seven consecutive home games for Manchester City for the first time.

Leicester were determined to secure such a huge profit on a player they bought for a reported £350,000 from French second-division side Le Havre in 2014 and who played a pivotal role in the club's rise from the Championship to Premier League champions.

The Algerian winger joined up with his team-mates on Friday but whether his arrival has come too late to be considered for selection against ironically the same City outfit he nearly joined in January remains to be seen.

Raheem Sterling had given City an early lead on Saturday but Leicester went into the break on level terms thanks to Jamie Vardy's equaliser.

Manchester City have written to the body in charge of professional referees to raise their concerns over a series of unsafe challenges suffered by their players, according to widespread reports on Saturday. "We need to enjoy our football and look forward". "And time to be match fit".

Guardiola said he will be able to name a full squad for the game to face Leicester City and aimed his response at TV pundit Gary Neville, who criticised the City boss after he named just six substitutes for the 1-1 draw against Burnley last weekend.
