Manchester City’s new signing, Riyad Mahrez has left the club’s pre-season tour of the US to return to Manchester.
The Daily Telegraph reports that the Algerian international returned to Manchester wearing a protective boot on his left ankle.
Mahrez was forced off midway during the first half of City’s 3-2 win over Bayern Munich in their third pre-season encounter played on Sunday.
City paid a club-record £60milllion fee to sign Mahrez from Leicester earlier this summer, but he’s now a serious doubt for the start of the English Premier League season, which kicks off on August 8.
The Premier League Champions will clash with Chelsea in the Community Shield on Sunday and Mahrez has now emerged as an early doubt for Pep Guardiola’s men.
