Algeria international Riyad Mahrez has revealed his delight after making his friendly debut for Manchester City during the International Champions Cup clash against Borussia Dortmund. The game was tightly contested between both sides but ultimately, Dortmund ran victors after scoring the only goal of the match via the penalty spot.
Following the game, Mahrez said that he was pleased to have got some minutes under his belt after an extended break from competitive action, he said: “I feel very good. It was a good game. We had some good moments. The most important thing was to get some minutes, to run and try to play the way City plays. I think we played a good game. It was a good start.”
The representative of Jorginho has confirmed the Italian is on the cusp of joining Manchester City. The Premier League champions have been negotiating a transfer fee with Napoli since the start of the month and agent Joao Santos has now confirmed that the transfer could come to fruition by next week.
“Jorginho is now in Fortaleza with his family on vacation. In football you need signed documents, without this you can do little. We have a verbal agreement with City, now we are waiting for Napoli to find the agreement and Manchester [City] to define the deal. Everything depends on this aspect, next week could be the one. Before Ancelotti arrived there was already talk of a transfer of Jorginho, so the change of the technical guide was not decisive,” he told Calcio Napoli 24 Live.
