Riyad Mahrez’s agent denies Manchester United rumours

by Ben Topliss

Riyad Mahrez’s agent has denied rumours linking the Leicester City forward with a move to Manchester United.

Mahrez has been in superb form this season having scored seven goals in ten Premier League games, as well as creating five more.

Leicester have climbed to third in the league table and Mahrez’s performances, along with Jamie Vardy’s, have played a huge part in getting them there.

However, the Algerian’s agent, Kamel Bengougam, rubbished reports which linked him with a move to Old Trafford.

“I don’t have any contact with Manchester United about Mahrez. He is only focused on this season with Leicester City,” Bengougam said.

Louis van Gaal has often spoke of how he is looking to inject “speed and creativity” into his side and Mahrez would certainly fit the bill.

However, it remains to be seen if the 24-year-old can keep up his sensational run of form. If Mahrez maintains it until the end of the campaign, then the United rumours will inevitably pick up speed.
