Manchester City winger, Riyad Mahrez, has signed a new three-year contract that will keep him at the club until 2025.
The Algeria superstar had just one year remaining on his contract and would have been available for free at the end of the season.
City have been busy tying down a number of senior players to longer terms contracts with Rodri signing a five-year-deal earlier this week and an extension for Phil Foden expected to be announced in the near future.
The Premier League champions have lost two wide players this summer with Raheem Sterling’s £47.5m ($57m) move to Chelsea confirmed this week following the departure of Gabriel Jesus to Arsenal in a £45m ($55m) deal.
The club could yet use some of the money to bring in a new winger but are prioritising strengthening other positions first with a left-back required and a possible move for Brighton’s Marc Cucerella if Oleksandr Zinchenko joins Arsenal.
A potential new centre-back is off the shopping list with Nathan Ake set to remain at the club after Chelsea showed some interest.
Pep Guardiola’s alternatives at right-wing include Academy player Cole Palmer, who is well thought of by the City boss and his staff, and Argentinian forward Julian Alvarez, who is mainly a striker but can also play wide.
