Manchester City's Riyad Mahrez open to PSG move

Riyad Mahrez of Manchester City carries the ball to take a corner during the FA Cup Fifth Round match between Sheffield Wednesday and Manchester City at Hillsborough on March 04, 2020 in Sheffield, England.

Manchester City attacker Riyad Mahrez is open to a move away from the defending Premier League champions amidst reports of interest from French giants PSG, according to Calciomercato. 

The Algerian has been a key player for Pep Guardiola's side this season in the absence of Leroy Sane, but now 29, City are prepared to listen to offers for Mahrez. 

PSG have been courting the experienced winger, who has had a direct hand in 23 competitive goals for City this season. 

After City were handed a two-year ban from the Champions League, Mahrez is eager to continue plying his trade in the competition. 

PSG may consider Mahrez a potential replacement for Neymar or Kylian Mbappe, who have both been linked with a move to Spain in recent months. 

City have appealed the ban, with the club adament they are an innocent party and it could be that the suspension is postponed for a full year. 

Guardiola is prepared to sanction a major overhaul of the City squad, with defenders John Stones and Nicolas Otamendi also available.
