    @Ash How much do you think the club would accept for Mahrez this window?

    Telegraph are reporting 90m, but I can’t imagine you’d say no to anything around 70m or above?

    Not sure tbh, would be fuming if he just goes for 70 at this stage though. With the timing and how good he's been this season I would want at least 100 as we're not getting a replacement, think he'll stay till summer

    You can't blame him for wanting the move. One of the few from that title winning team that deserved a move to an elite club, so has stuck around longer than he ought to really.

    I can tbh, City is not a good career move and it's half way through the season

    Surprised we haven't kept hold of him with Musa & Ulloa out the door.

    up top we've got Vardy,Okazaki,Kelechi so a little light and tbh Okazaki is more of a 10, so we've basically got two strikers. Worst comes to worst, Gray has played striker for the England minnows. Does make me wonder if we're working on something behind the scenes as it does seem a little careless to be that light in that department, even if all three going out is the right call

    The three of them should be enough to get you by to the end of the season.

    be a lot more comfortable with just another in the background, some like Ings on loan would be ideal. Tanner said we won't do much business today so dont expect anything

    Mahrez's team mates aren't happy, apparently.

    Makes no sense for Leicester to sell Mahrez today. He will be worth just as much, or even more in the summer, will give the club a bit of time to find a replacement.

    You're asking too much. He's not worth 95m.

    Ousmane Dembele cost Barca 97m and he's 6 years younger.

    65-75m would be a fair price.

    Deliberately priced him out of a move I would think.

    Who cares about a fair price? Irs last minute no opportunity to get a replacement, he's worth more than Dembele

    fair enough tbh, letting kante go for £35m then telling mahrez he can leave but rejecting £65m...

    We didn't let him go he had a release clause, the two deals are completely different anyway. City came in last minute with no real chance of bringing in a replacement on the table and a shoddy evaluation. I expect Riyad will be fine, he's a good professional who missed out last summer and still put in performances. He's nailed on to leave in the summer anyway, just the press trying to make a story out of it

    They've gone back on their word, but you can understand why. At the same time, it's no surprise he's angry about it.

    Mahrez needs to get a grip, he is meant to be a professional....

    Doubt we'll see him in a Leicester shirt again this season.

    They're trying to put on a brave face going by that Geoff Peter's tweet.
