Riyad Mahrez extended his two-year contract with Premier League champions Manchester City on Friday. Algerian winger Mahrez has been awarded new contract to stay at Manchester City until 2025 after helping them defend their English title. Since joining from Leicester for £60m ($71m) four years ago, Mahrez has made 189 appearances for Pep Guardiola’s side, scoring 63 goals and providing 45 assists. The 31-year-old has won three Premier League titles, three League Cups and an FA Cup with Manchester City.

“I’m very happy to sign new contract. I’ve spent every minute here. It’s a pleasure to be part of such an incredible club,” Mahrez said.

“Having helped us succeed over the past four seasons has been unforgettable and left us all hungry for more.

“I would also like to thank Pep, Txiki (Begiristain) and the coaching staff for helping me as player and pushing me to continue to improve.

“Right now I just want to try to play my part and help us be successful next season and beyond.”

Mahrez, who scored 24 goals for City in all competitions last season, looks set to play key role this season following the departures of Gabriel Jesus and Raheem Sterling.

“Riyadh has been instrumental in our success in the four years since he joined us,” said City Football Director Txiki Begiristain.

“He is of the most exciting wingers in the game and we are all happy to know that he will be part of our effort to achieve greater success.”
