PFA offers assistance in Leicester vs Mahrez row

Manchester United could be eyeing up Fabinho

Mahrez has been urged by Leicester boss Claude Puel to "clear his head" before returning to the Foxes fold.

Mahrez has reportedly been absent from the club ever since being denied a deadline day move to the Etihad Stadium in January, and he is expected to miss a third straight game when the Foxes take on City on Saturday. It's public knowledge about Manchester City wanting to take him.

The Professional Footballs' Association have offered their assistance in the ongoing dispute between Riyad Mahrez and Leicester City following the winger's rejected move to Manchester City.

He wants the club to provide an assurance that they will not stand in his way if City, or anyone else, want to sign him.

Of course, that update may upset Leicester fans.

For much of the season, Mahrez has been praised for knuckling down and returning to the form that helped Leicester pull off their miraculous title win in 2016 despite having failed to secure a summer move.

In lieu of this escalating situation, the PFA have apparently offered to mediate over the proceedings until a solution can be reached between Leicester and the player.

Either way, the latest Mahrez news is good for Man City.

Pep Guardiola's side are now 13 points clear at the top of the Premier League after being held to a draw by Burnley at Turf Moor last weekend.

Second, the update reveals how Mahrez is still focused on trying to play for Pep Guardiola.
