    **** 'em all - the longer they take the more the price should go up as it just makes it harder and less time for us to sign a replacement or two.

    £80m minimum otherwise we are being completely ripped off!

    £60m or £80m...ultimately it doesn’t matter as recent form shows we’ll spunk it on over priced dross from Russia and Portugal.

    I thought Pereira was a good deal, you must know something.

    he seems to be perpetually miserable, Pereira is highly rated, Silva started to look right towards the end of the season too

    Plus Jonny Evans for 3.5 million, don't think we are spunking money.

    I thought Silva, Slimani, Musa, Mendy etc were all good signings but what did I know.

    Are you looking forward to watching a Mahrez-less Puel team?

    I can’t think of a single ‘sensible of mind’ Person who prefers a Leicester team without Mahrez.

    He is irreplaceable.

    I'm intreged to see what that will look like, what I'm not doing is making out every possible signing is a massive mistake like you seem to be doing, cheer up ffs

    I thought the same about Dougan.

    The thing that keeps coming to my mind is that saying about true love and breaking up. “If you love something, let it go. If it comes back to you, its yours forever. If it doesn't, then it was never meant to be.” We've had what was meant to be with this bloke; it's time to let go and move on.

    Me too - and it took us 50 years to regroup and win the premier league title after he left for Wolves

    Whatever!
    We're not trying to get rid of him.
    He wants to leave.
    Big difference.

    "Don't cry because I have gone, smile and remember all the good times"
    Or words to that effect

    After everything id still be well happy if he stayed. Just a little bit of me still thinks he might. Not because he wants to but because Man City wont pay what we want. From a fans perspective id happily watch him play for us for the next 2 years before he left on a free. Thats awful business though amd will never happen.

    It is possible that if we did not accept a 'reasonable' offer from Mahrez he might just throw a wobbly and go anywhere to get his 'freedom to ply his trade' back.

    I thought the delay was hinging on the size of agent's fees?

    Serious question. In most areas of entertainment, theatre, music, tennis, golf etc, the agent takes a percentage of the fee/salary he negotiates for his client, often 10-15%. So if the client is earning £10million a year, the agent may keep £1million of it, which is why agents are keen to move their players to a new team with higher salaries.

    Why in football is the agent's fee an addition to a transfer fee, rather than being taken by the agent from the client's package?

    Should be wrapped up by now.

    It's clear to me that Man City don't want Mahrez enough, they have shown nothing to make me think otherwise since they have been linked.

    Mahrez needs to have a long hard think about this move.


    Shambles

    Yeah I agree. I think a lot of the rhetoric about a price being broadly agreed looks like the old Barca/Real trick of leaking stuff to the press from the Man City side (especially with the Spanish influence there). I wonder if they’re still a bit apart in terms of agreeing a fee?
