REPORTS down south claim Patrick Roberts has thrown a spanner in the works of Man City’s £66million plus player bid for Riyad Mahrez.
The Englishman who has spent two and a half years at Celtic was being used as a makeweight in the deal that would see Roberts move to Leicester with Mahrez in the other direction.
With the player unable to agree terms with the club, the deal is now OFF the table and Paddy will remain a Man City player for the foreseeable future.
Man City will have to put up close to £85million for the midfielder now with Roberts dropping out the equation.
Patrick spoke at the end of last season, saying he was desperate to test himself in the Premier League. He obviously didn’t see the value in heading to Leicester at this stage in his career.
It’s still unlikely that he’ll get a chance at Man City so the winger is still expected to leave the club at some point.
