REVEALED: The 2 Man City players Leicester rejected in Mahrez talks

Leicester City rejected Manchester City's swap proposal for Riyad Mahrez last month, it has been revealed.

In England, it's already been confirmed City refused Leicester's request for Patrick Roberts, currently on-loan with Celtic, to be included in their offer for Mahrez.

And France Football has added further detail to the negotiations today.

Leicester were demanding €80-90m to sell Mahrez last week, though were willing to drop their cash valuation if City included players in their offer.

City were willing to oblige and offered Yaya Toure and Eliaquim Mangala in part-exchange. But both players were rejected by Leicester officials.
