Guardiola discusses changing transfer market, Riyad Mahrez's move to Saudi Arabia

Pep Guardiola acknowledges that the transfer market has experienced a shift after Riyad Mahrez was enticed by a lucrative offer from Saudi Arabia.

Mahrez, who had a successful stint with Manchester City, decided to join Al-Ahli in a move that Guardiola believes has been influenced by the financial power of Saudi Arabia.

Speaking during the club’s pre-season tour, Guardiola mentioned that they will not be seeking a direct replacement for Mahrez as every player brings a unique set of skills.

He also highlighted the increasing trend of top footballers moving to the Saudi Pro League and emphasized the need for clubs to be aware of this changing landscape.

The summer transfer window has witnessed notable players like Cristiano Ronaldo, Karim Benzema, N’Golo Kante, Sadio Mane, and others making moves to the Middle East.

These transfers have not only involved high transfer fees but also extravagant wages.

Despite these developments, Manchester City will continue their pre-season preparations and face Atletico Madrid in their upcoming match.
