Riyad Mahrez will stay at Leicester for at least one more season despite interest from Manchester United, according to reports.
The Algerian international has been hot property this summer as the Foxes continue to reject offers for the winger.
Serie A giants Roma were forced to give up their chase for Mahrez but it appears they are not the only club interested in his signature.
According to RMC Sport, Red Devils boss Jose Mourinho has been keeping close tabs on the 26-year-old.
The Portuguese boss had been in the market for a new wide man during the transfer window after having interest in both Ivan Perisic and Gareth Bale rebuffed.
He later conceded defeat in his pursuit for a winger after admitting United will sign no more players before Thursday’s 11pm deadline.
And that will be music to Craig Shakespeare’s ears as Mahrez continues to impress for the Foxes.
He has started the season in fine form assisting two goals in his first three league starts.
Mahrez has struggled to hit the heights of his 2015-16 fairytale campaign when he was crowned PFA Players’ Player of the Year.
He reportedly told Leicester at the start of the summer that he wanted to leave to further his career.
But despite Leicester rejecting bids of around £30million, Mahrez hasn’t kicked up a fuss as he looks to fire the Foxes up the table.
