As relayed by DZ Foot, Riyad Mahrez spoke of his Manchester City future shortly after scoring the only and winning goal in Algeria's narrow 1-0 victory over Mali on Sunday afternoon.

Mahrez explained, "There is nothing about my future. I am well in Manchester. I will stay inshallah."

Manchester City are not understood to be on the look out for a long-term solution in the wide positions, with a number of first-team stars such as Phil Foden, Raheem Sterling, and Ferran Torres all having hopes of hitting the very top of the game.

As such, club officials are not expected to strengthen in the wide midfield positions, with the likes of striker, defensive midfielder and a new left-back being the bigger priorities.
