Man City star Riyad Mahrez has revealed that he could one day leave England and move to either PSG or Marseille.

Mahrez first made his name for Ligue 2 side Le Havre. He spent two and a half years with the French outfit before he made the move to England to join Leicester.

He signed for the Foxes the season they earned their promotion to the Premier League. The attacker enjoyed a steady first season in the top flight, but he kicked into another gear in his second year.

In the season Leicester defied the odds to win the Premier League, Mahrez scored 17 league goals and won the PFA Players’ Player of the Year award.

He stayed at Leicester for another two years before he joined Man City for £60m, which made him Africa’s most expensive ever player.

Mahrez has enjoyed a couple of great years in Manchester, scoring 26 goals from his 101 appearances in all competitions.

He seems to be really enjoying his football currently under Pep Guardiola. Despite this, in an interview with Canal Plus, he did not rule out leaving to join Marseille or PSG in Ligue 1.

“It is crazy, but it’s true that I was a supporter of Marseille when I was little.

“Regarding PSG – it’s not relevant because I’m still under contract and I’m fine in Manchester, but Paris is my city. I was born and raised in Paris. You never know.

“I could have gone to play in Marseille [in 2014-15] and I can still play in Marseille. You never know in life, you shouldn’t close any door.

“I didn’t know at the time and I was fine at Leicester but they ruled that I didn’t have the required level [to play there].”
