City Summary – March 8: Mahrez discusses failed City move, Fernandinho trains, Dilrosun set for exit

Catch up on all of today’s Manchester City news with our City Summary!

Riyad Mahrez has spoken for the first time to the press since his mooted move to Manchester City collapsed. He sounded disappointed – will Pep return for him in the summer?

Fernandinho was pictured in training today ahead of a likely return against Stoke.

Stoke boss Paul Lambert has spoken highly of City and Pep Guardiola, expressing the need for his team to take the Blues out of their ‘comfort zone’ on Monday night. Is that football talk for ‘park the bus’?

It’s not the most interesting stat, but Aymeric Laporte put himself in the record books against FC Basel.

Manchester City will lose talented Dutch winger Javairô Dilrosun this summer after the youngster declined to renew his contract – and he’s already flown to Lisbon to hear Benfica’s offer.

A Dutch player who will be arriving is Philippe Sandler, who unofficially joined from PEC Zwolle in January. His current coach, John van ‘t Schip, reckons he’ll have a good chance to impress Pep Guardiola in preseason.

Another defender who could arrive is El Chadaille Bitshiabu, who is 6’2″ tall at the age of 12. Yes, you read that right.

That’s it for today. Keep your eyes peeled on @City_Watch and the site, day and night, as we work to deliver the latest City news, views, and other high-quality content.
