Barcelona cleared to talk to Mahrez, Silva deal on hold, Foxes
waiting for Barca bid, Arsenal star and FIFA approval

Riyad Mahrez could be
close to a deal with Barcleona, with Leicester City not holding
talks back, if that will take place. The Silva deal is still in the
air, waiting on FIFA approval
According to website
Everything Barca, who use The Sun as a source, Leicester have
cleared a possible move, and as this is written they are waiting on
a bid which is acceptable for the Algerian international.
Mahrez left the Algeria camp yesterday and was seen around
airports in Europe. The reason why is of course that a number of
English clubs and Barcelona were reported to be interested, and if a
bid had been accepted, Mahrez must be as close to the schene as
possible, that is why the transit hall in the airports might have
been the ideal place.
Mahrez is eager to leave Leicester City, and he could get his
dream move to Barca, with all the English clubs no longer in the
picture. The fact that Barca is eager also on players such as Ozil
and Coutinho, could stop a possible move for Mahrez.
Yesterday a number of websites and newspapers
confirmed City's signing of Adrien Silva, but so far nothing is
sealed, with FIFA decissions to be made, to see if everything was
done proper and at the right time.
City are waiting for that move to be cleared, but it will probably
not affect the decission on Mahrez. The fact that City blocked all
attempts from other clubs to sign Demarai Gray, might be the fact
that the England U.21 international could get his "big chance" at
The next hours will decide if Mahrez is leaving or not, from our
point of view, it looks close to a move, but again City might have
to lower their price for the player to see the transfer done.
Barca moves are big news, and if they land Mahrez, then Leicester
City could cash in and start thinking about the future instead of
using rope to hold on to their greatest assets. Football is a
moveable business and Demarai Gray could be the next big name in
Premier League football.
If Mahrez is staying, a new attempt from him will come up in the
next transfer window, and the saga will continue. City will not be
empty handed, and the Mahrez "boutique" will be one of the best
deals done in World football ever, looking at the price he was
signed for from Le Havre.
