Manchester City have broken their club record to sign Algerian winger Riyad Mahrez from Leicester City for £60,000,000.
The 27 year old Algerian International has signed a 5 year deal worth £250,000 a week to become the Blues' first recruit since they won the Premier League.
They walked away from a potential £95,000,000 deal for the Algerian in January after being put off by Leicester's valuation.
Mahrez said the club's style of play is "perfect" for him and he wanted to be part of a club which is "redefining the English game".
"Watching them from afar has been a pleasure," said Mahrez.
"Pep Guardiola is committed to playing attacking football, and City's performances last season were outstanding.
"I think we can be successful over the coming years and I believe my own game can develop under Pep's management."
Mahrez was named the PFA Players' Player of the Year during Leicester's surprise Premier League triumph in 2015-16, and leaves the club having scored 48 goals in 179 appearances.
Mahrez will wear the number 26 shirt for the 2018 -2019 season .
