Man City boss Guardiola turned off Mahrez by AWOL antics

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has been turned off by Riyad Mahrez's antics this past week.

The Mirror says City bid £60million for Mahrez, but walked away on deadline day after Leicester indicated they valued their prized asset at a massive £95m.

Since seeing his dream move to the Mancunian Blues collapse, Mahrez has gone on strike — refusing to turn up for training and missing the Foxes' last two games.

Guardiola had left the door open to a fresh summer bid for a player who cost Leicester just £400,000 four years ago, as he is still keen to add another attacking option to his squad.

But the Spaniard is said to have major concerns at the way Mahrez has dealt with the fall-out from his failed move and will now look elsewhere.
