Mahrez became the Premier League champions' club-record signing on Tuesday, signing a five-year contract worth £200,000 a week as he arrived for a fee of £60m.

"Everyone has been watching the World Cup". "Players at top clubs always have to face competition for places, it is normal for big clubs to have a lot of great players and City are a big club with a big manager", he explained. They deserve a lot of credit for what they have achieved because reaching the semi final is very, very hard. I made the decision to come here because I want to be part of that.

The African star was expected to join City in January this year, but after the Foxes struggled to find an adequate replacement for the winger in time before the window closed, the player remained at Leicester.

"They have everything they need to succeed in the Champions League and that's where I want to play".

Riyad Mahrez didn't hesitate to sign for Manchester City despite facing a fight to force his way into Pep Guardiola's record-breaking side. I am very happy to be here and will try to give my best for the club. He is happy for me. "I showed in the last three years in the Premier League that I deserve to play at the highest level and now I have to show it".

Guardiola already has an impressive number of attacking choices to pick from with Sergio Aguero, Gabriel Jesus, Raheem Sterling and Leroy Sane firing City to 100 points with a record 106 goals last season. They beat everyone, ' Mahrez said.

"I'm confident I can help the team", Mahrez said. We're going to start to work this week and then we will see.

"The most important thing is I'm here, happy and starting a new challenge and a new life", he said."[January] is in the past, I'm here now.it's what happened before and I'm happy now.
