Manchester City star Riyad Mahrez is keen on extending his Manchester City contract.

The forward still has a year left on his £160,000-a-week contract and is hoping to sign a new Manchester City contract this summer.

According to The Sun, Mahrez is ready to sign a new long-term deal — and effectively commit the rest of his career to Manchester City.

Manchester City hope to open talks with the 31 year old winger over a new contract next month.

Mahrez is settled in Manchester while he and partner Taylor Ward, daughter of former striker Ashley, are expecting their first child this year.

With Raheem Sterling and Gabriel Jesus looking likely to leave the club this summer, Manchester City hope to secure the future of Mahrez.

Mahrez reportedly wants a new three year contract with Manchester City with an option of a fourth year.

Manchester City do not want to lose him on a free and are confident terms will be agreed without fuss.

Manchester City signed Mahrez from Premier League side Leicester City in 2018 for a fee of around £60million.

He has gone on to score 63 goals in 189 games under Pep Guardiola.

The 31 year old Algerian has won three Premier League titles with Manchester City and is hoping to win more with the Blues.

Meanwhile, Manchester City has agreed a £45million deal for Leeds star Kalvin Phillips.

Guardiola sees the England international as an ideal replacement for Fernandinho who will leave Manchester City when his contract expires at the end of the month.

Guardiola made Phillips his top priority after Fernandinho announced in April he would be leaving the Etihad.

Phillips becomes the second addition to Guardiola’s squad following the swoop for Erling Haaland for £51m.

Phillips will provide back-up for Rodri who enjoyed an excellent season as City won a fourth league title in five years.
