Mahrez's agent plays down Manchester United rumours
Mahrez's agent plays down Manchester United rumours

Riyad Mahrez’s agent has rubbished reports the Leicester City midfielder has been in contact with Manchester United about a transfer.

The 24-year-old has scored seven goals in 10 Premier League outings and has created five more.

Along with England striker Jamie Vardy - who has now scored in eight consecutive league games - his performances have been responsible for leading Claudio Ranieri’s to third place in the league table.

That form has inevitably caught the eye and Mahrez has been linked with a move to Old Trafford.

However, Kamel Bengougam has told ESPN FC there is nothing in the reports suggesting the Algerian international could leave Leicester.

"I don't have any contact with Manchester United about Mahrez," Bengougam claimed.

"He is only focused on this season with Leicester City."

Mahrez joined the Foxes in 2014 from Le Harve and helped them win promotion to England’s top flight from the Championship.

Last season, his first in the Premier League, he contributed four goals and three assists as Leicester produced a remarkable recovery to avoid relegation.
