5 Reasons Why Riyad Mahrez Should Stay At Leicester

Following persistent rumors linking Riyad Mahrez with a move away from Leicester, it’s the most intriguing saga of this summer. Mahrez’s agent Kamel Bengougam was seen in attendance during an Arsenal friendly against Lens. It was followed by the Chelsea Store coming up with Adidas Mahrez 7 jerseys. The battle heats up as the London giants battle it out for the PFA -Player of The Year 2015-2016.

Let us take a look at  5 reasons why Mahrez should snub Chelsea and Arsenal to stay with Leicester:

The Suarez-Gerrard Saga of Summer 2013

In an audacious attempt to lure the former Liverpool talisman Luis Suarez during an eventful Summer Transfer Window  of 2013, Arsenal launched an impertinent bid of £40,000,001 to activate his release clause. Suarez was keen for a move to Emirates before Kop legend and LFC Captain Steven Gerrard advised him otherwise. Stevie advised ElPistolero to stay patient and wait until the likes of Bayern Munich, Real Madrid or Barcelona came calling.

The Result? The mesmerizing forward had a thunderous season for the Anfield outfit. He won them a Champions League place and came close to securing a memorable League Title. Next summer, Suarez joined the Catalan giants with the consent of the famous Kopites. He eventually went on to win the treble with them forming a deadly trio of Messi-Neymar-Suarez.

Drawing comparisons with Riyad Mahrez, neither Arsenal nor Chelsea seems like the Club of his Dreams. If the Foxes winger stays at Leicester and enjoys another successful campaign at The King Power Stadium, it is possible that the likes of Real Madrid, Barcelona, Bayern Munich or even Paris St. Germain might come calling for him.

The Gunners are desperate to lure Riyad Mahrez away from King Power Stadium. They are leaving no stone un-turned in attempts to add a goal scoring midfielder to their roster. Arsenal have a squad with plenty of superstars in Sanchez, Ozil, Cazorla, Ramsey, Wilshere et al. There is massive competition for places which only adds to the probability of Mahrez being dropped down to the bench.

It is also worth questioning as to whether the Algerian winger will be provided with as much freedom at Emirates. Claudio Ranieri knows Mahrez very well and Wenger might end up playing him out of position.

What if he is not able to perform at the same level? And with the price tag and weight of expectations courtesy the hype created by British Media, he might succumb to the pressure of performing day in and day out. None of us would fancy that, would we?

Leicester City won their maiden Premier League trophy last year while the entire world anxiously waited for them to collapse. The Foxes achieved this courtesy a cohesive and motivated team playing for each other, helping each other out.  It is a great chance for the foxes to retain their Premier league title (or at least aim for the Top4) and for Mahrez to play alongside Vardy, Morgan, Albrighton, Fuchs, Schmeichel and Co.

Chelsea simply wouldn’t offer him European Football (at least this season ). Considering the stats of Arsenal in Europe, Leicester are pretty much at par with the Gunners in their aspirations for European glory. After some astute signings in the summer transfer window of 2016, Leicester now have Ahmed Musa, Ron-Robert Ziegler, Nampalys Mendy and Luis Hernandez in their squad which only strengthens their claim for another remarkable season if things go according to the plan.

Claudio Ranieri, who achieved unprecedented glory with the foxes last year has conducted some really shrewd business over the summer as he looks forward to another campaign to remember. Ranieri knows Mahrez inside out having played a pivotal role in Mahrez becoming a revelation last season. He is hopeful that the Algerian maestro will stay at King Power stadium as he offered an insight to the latest developments.

Don Ranieri said, “We started our fairy tale and we want to continue. This is a dream and we continue together. He knows me, I know him very well and I understand when he plays so-so and I can permit to stay on the pitch. With another manager, when he plays so-so there are so many other stars – they put him on the bench.” He is a beloved figure, loved by fans, players and manager alike and can very well pick up from where he left as the Foxes prepare for a bout of European Football.

Let’s admit it, Mahrez is the Superstar of Leicester City following his remarkable performances last season that earned him the coveted PFA Player of The Year award. Mahrez’s importance to Leicester is undeniable. The Leicester wide man scored 17 league goals and provided 11 assists last season. He brandishes a wand of a left foot, can carry the ball to great distances with electric pace, blessed with wonderful technique, bamboozles past the very best of defenders and is indubitably a proven match-winner.

More importantly, Mahrez looks clearly happy and unperturbed by the speculations. He seems pretty much at home with the Foxes. Arsenal (and Chelsea too) on the other hand would provide him with overwhelming competition. Wenger has his favorites (Ramsey, Wilshere) and an array of creative wingers (Iwobi, Walcott, Sanchez, Gnabry) to choose from. he also has a knack of turning deaf ear towards those who perform rather better on occasions (Joel Campbell being the best example).

It is very likely that his career could go downhill at the Emirates and end up becoming the forgotten man. Mahrez could instead anchor the Foxes lineup and inspire them going forward as they look forward to feature in an intriguing European campaign.

Conclusion

It has been proven of late that football is more than just individuals. It’s about a motivated bunch of players playing for each other in a cohesive manner under an astute manager. He has all the ingredients to hop in to the starting eleven of Europe’s biggest clubs. His claim only gets better with time as he plies his trade in the English Premier League for Leicester. Arsenal simply wouldn’t provide him with as much freedom and playing time. While the same can be said about Conte’s blues who will also be without any form of European Football come next season.
