Liverpool triggered failed Manchester City move for Leicester star Riyad Mahrez

Carlos Carvalhal says some players don't want to come to Swansea

"It's a tough situation for us and all of this is a situation we need to manage but all of the details will stay inside the club".

Leicester are set to fine Mahrez the maximum two weeks' wages - in the region of £200,000 - after he missed training for a second successive day, sources close to the club confirmed to ESPN FC.

'It's a hard situation. Like professionals, we have to keep our focus.

"Clubs don't have to say yes, they're in a position to push a bit harder in the negotiations, but they also knew City needed to get it done quickly so there's that time element there as well". We can not change the situation - the transfer window is finished.

"I understand his disappointment. I hope he can come back happy and find a smile with his team-mates". It was an opportunity for him.

'He's seen other star players being allowed to fly the nest for good money - so why are Leicester demanding a king's ransom for Mahrez?




It is understood that the 26-year-old Algeria global is feeling so low that he is not in the right frame of mind to play.

His goals and assists - mostly for pal Jamie Vardy - turned more than a few heads, with Mahrez constantly tipped with a move away ever since, namely to Arsenal.

City tabled multipled unsuccessful bids for the 26-year-old this week as Pep Guardiola sought to strengthen his squad after the serious injury suffered by Leroy Sane at the weekend.

The vast wealth in the Premier League meant Leicester City could afford to turn down Manchester City's bid for Riyad Mahrez, according to a football finance expert.

Leicester manager Claude Puel is maintaining an upbeat tone about the standoff.

"I hope he can come back with us".
